As above, summer is coming and I need to pick up two more pairs of shorts ready for my 5 day a week training!

I am 186cm with 34" waist if that helps!

Any bargains around at the moment, please, feel free to point them out!

    Have a look at these squill...
    Because of the technical fabrics used, I wouldn't think you need too many pairs, if you rotate them in the wash... :wink:

    So out of the Shutt, DHB and Giordana, which would you rate the most?

    Sill open to suggestions

    Is that like wearing them inside out to get an extra days wear?

    I am still going to say Shutt, its a cool brand and still quite exclusive plus its got a great insert. If you want something thats going to last and not going to go out of fashion, plus its only £29.....You can't go wrong really

    The Shutt bibs look like a serious bargain - but I'd be interested to know more about the 'SeanYates' cut.

    I know 'Yattez' used to wear his shorts fairly short, but the pic on the site is not that clear..?

    They come to about 4-5" above the knee, rather than current trend of 1-2". Makes for a much nicer tan line in my opinion.

    Im think going to get one of each methings as it still works out near £100

    So the Shutt, Giordana and DHB
