The Johnson are prefect for short road rides, or just about any mountain bike ride, especially in warmer weather. The material feels great, and the minimalist chamois is all that I need on most mountain bike rides.
I bought two. One is fine. The other smells really strongly of petroleum. Has anyone else experienced this?
Wasn't sure I needed this but am now considering buying more. I am a daily bike commuter and I love having a bit of chamois to soften the ride.
Good briefs for those short trips out to the trail. I would recommend to anyone looking at these to purchase them, you won't regret it!
I've been cycling up to 5,000 miles per year for 40+ years and have tried just about every kind of seat, shorts, liners, and combinations thereof. These Johnsons, worn under high-quality non-padded shorts, paired with my current leather saddle, are the best ever. I bought a couple to try out, rode way longer than 1 hour in them (50 and 60 miles), then immediately ordered 6 more pairs. Every positive comment made by other reviewers was true for me as well. One caveat, though. The rating of undershorts by "designed-for" hours of comfort seems over-simplistic. I would warn against taking the notion of more padding equals more comfort too literally, given how many other things affect comfort in the saddle. Personally, if I had taken those ratings seriously and bought the 4-hour Whatevers, I suspect they'd feel the least, not most, comfortable both on and off the bike, way too much wadding up the wazoo.
