"When I first tried these on the fit was perfect and white color looked really nice. Quality and construction are top notch. On the first ride I noticed that the pad was compressing too easily, especially compared to my other shorts. I was willing to live with this given all the other positive aspects. After some more rides I notice some discomfort and chafing. After my last ride I had severe abrasions due to the pad. I can no longer ride in these shorts and was told they cannot be returned."

Sizing

What size do you recommend, I am 5'8" 140 lbs with 30" waist. I like a snug fit. From the sizing chart it seems small would be best.
