Rated 5 out of 5 by bikeat30 Great bike shorts
These bike shorts are awesome. They have just the right amount of padding.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JCara12 Not sure I would recommend
Although others seemed to like these shorts, I found that the padding was not in the right place. It is mostly concentrated on the rear, in a spot where I already have my own padding! There is essentially no padding for the actual sit bones. I would caution people to try them in the store first. Sit on a bike. I will be returning them. Hopefully another style or brand will be better.
Otherwise, in case the padding works for you, I liked the fit after I exchanged my small for a medium (I'm 5'4" tall and 122 lbs). I also liked that the thigh opening wasn't too tight. The rise was pretty low as others said, you would probably not want to fold the top down as shown in the picture, but I actually like that they were lower.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AJ Prduct is extremely comfortable
Was worried about the waist band rolling down but fits nicely and stays put. Padding really helps for those long rides.

Great riding shorts for the price. No tight elastic on the thighs like my Izumis. Comfy and inexpensive. I did have to exchange my first pair though due to the stitching coming undone after only one wear. Second pair has held up great

Rated 5 out of 5 by Milee Surprisingly great!
When I pulled these out of the box, I thought I had wasted my money because the padding is very thin. However, the day before I received them, I biked 6 miles on a stationary bike and was in pain. The following day I wore these shorts and biked 18 miles without any pain at all! I was very surprised how well they did the job. Didn't get in the way at all, and were very comfortable! I love that the hem on the bottom isn't at the very end of the shorts so there is no fat bulge. I'm 145 lbs, 5''5" and ordered the Medium. Wish I would have gotten large because I have wide hips and they're a little difficult to get on and off, but they fit good enough! If I order another pair, I will get large though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by trigirl comfortable, good price
I bought these for my 20 mile rides in prep for a triathlon. I also wore these during the open swim, bike, and run. Comfortable and holding up so far. Great price - on sale for $25. I did need to buy one size up though. very tight fitting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhomo Great for long rides
This is the 3rd pair of Nishiki biking shorts I own. I buy them because of the shorter length and the lower price. The padding is adequate, but not the thickest on the market. I regularly bike 30-50 miles a week and often do much longer rides. For me, these shorts protect and absorb well.

I like the length of this short, the quality is great and value. I am 5'5" and the large fits me great, at first i tried the medium but it runs a tad small. I went for a 20 mile ride with this and it did the job for comfort. My only complain is since i got the large the length end of this short is a little loose for me yet did not interfere when riding, the rest of the short fits me perfect. Happy with this purchase.
