    I've got a couple of pairs of Endura shorts, medium size, used but still very "clean" if interested (pad looks like new)?

    Was going to Ebay them, £10 each?

    My Decathlon 'gel' padded shorts are my most comfortable out of over 10 pairs. They are within your budget.

    I have 3 pairs of these. Last for ever and still feel comfotable. Specialized make some of the most comfortable shorts I have ever worn.

    I have several pairs of basic Lusso waist shorts, they all work well. Pads are all different and the firmest pad (most comfortable over a distance) is in the Pro20, which I picked up for about £18 on ebay recently. Made in the UK, too. :)

    Have heard good things about Specialized shorts but not tried any.
    Aspire not to have more, but to be more.

    Decathlon shorts either the 5 or 7s very comfortable.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    How are you finding the Pro20's Simon.
    Also are the sizes correct or is it best to buy the next size up?
