Follow up report. I used the cost of the Scheel’s branded bike shorts towards a purchase of a pair of Pearl Izumi Attack (PIA) bike shorts. The PIA shorts cost twice as much as the Scheel’s branded shorts, but they are more than double in quality; really a night and day difference in fit, feel, and performance. And still no hind quarter discomfort por moi. Rode a fast 35 miles last evening that included some challenging hills. I’ll easily break the 500 mile marker tomorrow as I have 60-70 mile ride planned out. Looking forward to RAGBRAI.
