    A very densely packed book, May 6, 1999

    This review is from: Bicycle Touring: How to Prepare for Long Rides (Paperback)
    Not a page is wasted in Steve Butterman’s 88 page book “Bicycle Touring: How to Prepare for Long Rides.” The book quickly and plainly answers a lot of the basic questions that people have when thinking about a long bicycling trip:
    What will I need to bring? How do I plan my trip? What kind of shape do I need to be in? What about dangerous road conditions? How will people treat me? How much will it cost? What will I eat? What about weather? What about mountains/hills? How will I keep clean? … and many, many, many more.
    The author gives you the do’s and don’ts for buying the equipment for your ride, planning the ride, and actually doing the ride. Although this book does not include specific route information, it does have scores of referrals to people who do that sort of thing for a living.
    You will walk away from this book knowing about things about long rides that you wouldn’t have even thought about otherwise. It is a must-read for anyone that is thinking about a bicycle touring adventure.

    Butterman tells you how to prepare for long rides without writing a long book. This guide to getting yourself out for a tour has just the essentials: equipment, very basic repairs, a practical repair kit, training, and clothing. Touring is not about fashion! So, Butterman stays with practical choices. If nothing else, you’ll know that it’s possible to tour on a bicycle without spending a fortune. And that’s the joy of long-distance cycling.

    This is the one!, January 22, 1999

    This review is from: Bicycle Touring: How to Prepare for Long Rides (Paperback)
    Interested in getting started in bicycle touring but confused as to which book will give you the most for your money? Look no further. Paradoxically, of the dozen books I’ve purchased over the last two years on bicycle touring, this was the cheapest, yet by far the easiest to understand and most informative. Ounce for ounce, page for page this book provides the reader with all he/she needs to know about not only preparation but what to expect when touring. Mr. Butterman if you ever read this, thank you for a job well!

    MEN’s Pro Bike Shorts Cycling Bicycle Biking
    I ordered these bike shorts sight unseen since they only cost $29.95, quite a bit less than the other brand name cycling shorts I have purchased recently. When the shorts arrived a few days ago I was distressed to see that the chamois (crotch padding) had a row of stitching on either side of the perineal area. This is the way most chamois used to be made until a few years ago. More recently manufacturers have turned to one-piece, seamless chamois, on the theory that stitching can cause irritation. So when I wore the shorts for the first time today, for a 28 mile road ride (about 2 hours in the saddle), I was prepared for irritation and dissapointment. I was pleasantly surprised. The shorts fit well, much better than a pair of Giordana’s that cost about 3 times as much. The chamois was more comfortable than the one piece chamois on my Adidas and Cannondale shorts, which also cost quite a bit more. As another reviewer has remarked, the chamois on these Aero Tech Designs shorts felt less diaper-like than the chamois on many shorts. It did not bunch and conformed well. Cushioning was good to excellent. There was no irritation at the end of the ride. I am quite pleased and would certainly buy another pair of these shorts. But my time was 5% slower and this can only be attributed to the shorts.

    Before picking up some biking shorts I wanted some that were well reviewed and well liked. The 4.5 star rating on this caught my eye and picked up two pair.

    And no regrets!! These things fit like a glove and are very comfortable to ride in. Even when I walk around in them they feel less like a diaper than others I’ve owned. And to top it all off, the price is fantastic!! I’ll only buy these shorts when I need more in the future.

    Pick up a pair or two, your butt will thank you for it.

    Only Good for beginners, June 23, 2009

    Andrew (Chicago IL) –

    Due to a knee injury, I decided to take up cycling. I was skeptical of the whole idea of bike shorts really helping, so I purchased this inexpensive pair. When I first started doing 8-12 mile rides they were great. The padding was very plush and overall they were really comfortable. However, once I started doing longer rides greater than 20 miles, I found that the padding quickly flattened out. They were good for about 225-250 miles, then they wore out.

    If you don’t plan on biking seriously, but want to improve your comfort these shorts are great (and cheap). However, serious cyclists should look elsewhere.
