Gear Talk / Cycling Shorts vs. Padded Liners?
« on: December 28, 2011, 01:45:47 am »
I've never gone on a bike trip before, but I'm interested in starting touring. Nothing too big to start out, maybe just a couple days to a week.

I'm currently trying to get together all sorts of necessary supplies, and I have a question on the bike shorts. I've found that most good, padded shorts run around $100, but I've also come across cycling liners for $30 at REI that provide a small bit of padding, and can (in theory and according to some reviews) work well under another pair of shorts.

Being the on-a-budget guy that I am, I'm certainly interested, but I also don't want to sacrifice quality. Has anyone used liners on tours? If so, were they successful? I realize, also, that comfort will depend not only on shorts but also on my saddle and distance, but I thought I'd ask, at least.
