They look a but long for a hot day in the saddle. Think I'll go the under baggy route. I tried the baggy shorts, specific bike pants and they shift too much.

THANKS for all the advice peoples.

Now what about pedals/clip ons...?

I have SPD shoes and peds but everyone tells me there obsolete compared to the new LOOK's systems, and CRANK BROS. set up.....???
