I have MTB specific shorts by Zoic, Oakley, Royal, and Maloja. Bought them all on clearance from Competitivecyclist.com. IIRC, they were priced between $30-39 per pair. Stick with dark colors unless you want the poopy pants look after a muddy ride. Try to find some with zippered mesh vents and liners.
