Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I was hoping for I have another pair of Novara bike shorts that i love and thought these would be just as good. Sadly, they are not. First of all, the sizes run small. Secondly, the pockets are awful for biking - both front and back pockets are shallow, and the front pockets have an angled ('easy entry") edge that, combined with the lack of depth, make me worry my keys will fall out while riding. All in all, I'm not certain I'm even going to keep these, even though they really are cute.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute bike shorts! I tried these on in the store. I liked them so much, I bought both colors. As the other review stated, they may run a bit small. I usually wear a size 4 but they only had a 6 in store. This works perfect as you want them roomy for biking. I'll wear these on a casual ride. They are stylish and the reflective threads are a nice feature. Can't beat the price!
