 dhb Dyno Baggy Short & Removable Padded Liner
dhb Dyno Baggy Short & Removable Padded Liner
A baggy performance short for trail and cross country riding or for those commuters who just want an alternative to lycra cycling shorts, the Dyno short is perfect for both tearing through the woods and/or daily commutes through the city streets.

" These shorts are great overall, but while the inner short is exactly the right size and very similar to my other DHB branded lycra shorts, the outer is ENORMOUS! Also, although there are velcro waist adjusters, I can only just reduce the waist enough to stop the shorts from falling down. I noticed other similar reviews before I bought and they were all exactly right. It's almost as if the sizes of the inner and outer shorts have been mixed up in the warehouse and I have inner size M mismatched with outer size L. "
Pros: Comfortable, High Quality, Versatile
Cons: Poor Fit, Limited Color Choices

" I've had 2 pairs of these shorts before and ordered the same size - these appear to have been redesigned (much better) and made more generous. If I'd known before I ordered, I would have ordered a size smaller. That said, they still represent excellent VFM "

grippers elastic

Just purchased size large. I am 5' 10" with 33 waist. They feel very comfy but with my skinny legs the gripper elastics are loose. Is this an issue & should I try the medium?
I'd try medium - they should feel very snug. I'm about the same size as you and would choose Med

Where should the padding sit/Underwear Choice

Hi these are my first pair of cycling shorts and im 5'11" 34" Waist and got a medium, also i got them in white to match my jersey.

While the shorts seem to fit well, i'm a bit unsure about how you wear them. Should the shorts be pulled up for a tight padding fit or should there be clearance between the padding and my lower area?

Also if i havent got any underwear on there pretty revealing, will normal thigh length boxers be ok or should i buy padded cycling underwear to go with them ? (Don't want to get gawked at, or give any old ladies a heart attack if i wear them in public)
Pull 'em up high and make sure they're a really snug fit - if anything, they should feel a bit tight to avoid chafing. You definitely don't want to wear anything underneath them!
