Very keen on these for short runs about town and casual runs. Not so keen on the price. Anyone know of anything similar on the market for a bit less wonga?

    hmm - they might be worth a punt. Maybe a little too baggy. I guess I'm being a little fussy - some nice tailored tight-ish fitting shorts but not ones which leave the family jewels bulging out would be just the ticket.

    I don't know if they still make them, but I have a pair of Gore Touring Shorts (bought out of a bargain bin last year). They are excellent - much tighter fitting than mtb baggies, perfect for riding a road bike when you don't want that lycra look. Very practical too, some very well designed pockets.
