Cycle Shorts For Long Legs?

Last week I purchased a pair of cycle shorts hoping to improve my comfort while riding. Unfortunately, since I have much longer than average legs, the bottom of the shorts was way higher up on my thigh than they're supposed to be (forgive the bad explanation). Because of this the bottom of the shorts were very tight and uncomfortable. From what I've seen, my only option is to buy a larger pair although these would likely be too loose around the waist. Any suggestions for cycle shorts suited for people with longer legs would be appreciated.

    Bib shorts are more comfortable than regular shorts and the waist would not be a problem. In the last couple of years some manufacturers have started making shorts that do not have a gripper around the bottom of the leg. Instead there is a double layer of fabric. The legs are also somewhat longer which would be ideal for you. My bib shorts are made by Louis Garneau but they are not the only manufacturer using this design

  • 9 years ago Try those folks. They have shorts for every size person I believe. See this link... Just keep scrolling down for more articles of clothing specifically made for tall people.
