    Regular leg for me.

    Great shorts, I have a couple of pairs and have ridden some decent distances in them.

    I have both, I prefer the shorter legs, long enough to protect you from the saddle, I have short legs, but I guess its just preference, you wont look like a 70s porn star.

    I'm 184cm and have just bought the regular leg version in a large. The leg length is fine, I don't see the need for the long version other than personal preference.

    First ride in them today, fantastic shorts, so comfortable that you don't notice them (or the saddle) at all. I'll definitely be getting another pair !

    I bought the regular leg version and I'm about 180cm. They have made century rides bearable so are worth the money IMO.

    I'm 185cm with longish legs, so bought the long version. Great bibs, and perfect length for me
  • I am 185cm and 82kg and have tried both the regular and long versions in size L. The regular fits me very well, but the long is too loose on my thighs and didn't grip properly, so I had to return them. If you have more chunky thighs than me then I guess the long would be fine!

    Thanks for the replies. Sounds regular are the ones to have. Cheers.

    The leg length difference is 4 cm. According to Primera Sport

    I bought long, and then sent them back and exchanged for regular. 180cm and around 87kg (ish....), use large.

    Great shorts, you wont regret it
