    When I first posted this in July, I was simply a satisfied customer with no conflict of interest. Once I invested in the privately held company in September, I disclosed that in a posting on this thread. Does that invalidate my earlier positive comments?

    Assuming you truly managed to go from "no conflict of interest" to "investor" in a couple of months, then no. However, still have seen no corroborating evidence from anyone else. That's what I'm looking for to make the thread useful.

    Perhaps that is true and I love you just the same. Here is a place where we have an opportunity to salute each other and our efforts.

    With all due respect, enjoy every mile. :)

    Hi Js,
    As I first noted in the first sentence of my first post "A friend of mine has developed some underwear that really increase sitting comfort on long rides (at least they do for me)."

    I've known Terry Delonas for over 30 years now and he is a good friend of mine. We've had many adventures, some epic, over the years. But that's another story. I offered to spread the word about his shorts because they truly worked for me and I thought the riding community could benefit from knowing about them. At least those of us with lean backsides :D So when they needed funds for a second manufacturing run I offered to help and, in return, bought into the company. It's a win-win for me and his company.

    Certainly somebody on the board has purchased a pair by now? I also am looking for some comments from folks here (or elsewhere if you've posted about the shorts and received feedback on another forum).

    The lack of feedback tells me all that I need to know. Adios!

    Patience, patience.

    Terry D., the founder of Lipowear has received lots of positive comments from motorcycle riders that they've posted on their website. I've asked him to see if any of them are on this forum and can add their two cents. That may take a while though.

    I'd never heard of these things until I just found this thread.

    That doesn't mean that they're not a good product, but from what I've read it's just they aren't typically marketed to motorcycle riders and few have tried them at this point.

    But...

    Via con dios!

    That's because they just came out this summer and the company is a small start-up. I recommended they consider the m/c market (see my first post) in July and they've been marketing a bit to riders on Facebook but they simply haven't had the $$ to do a big ad campaign.

    Hi all,

    The makers of these shorts have replenished their inventory of XL and XXL shorts for men and finally have been able to make some women specific shorts (sizes & fit). Their new website for non-health oriented users (like us) is http://www.sitrelief.com

    How is this not in vendors. If you had a 44 waist I'd give it a try. More comfort equals more miles :)

    Because my original post was to provide fellow inmates with a review of these shorts and I had no financial conflict of interest. Since then though I had an opportunity to buy into the company which I took so now do have a conflict of interest.

    I'm not sure how to move it to Vendors. I'm not actually selling them myself but understand that vendors may now be a more appropriate place. How does one do that? Thanks.

    OK...so I'm a little confused.

    Earlier in this thread you claimed the price to be $69. When I went to the website to take advantage of the 50% discount I found the shorts selling for $90?

    What gives? :huh Is there a discount code I missed?

    Hi, The $69 was an intro price last summer (July 2009). So you just hadn't noticed that the original post was a year ago. The MSRP subsequently went up to $89. They have 2 sites and the sitrelief.com site has an incorrect link for ordering right now. Use their other, medically oriented site and you'll see the correct $49 sale price http://www.sitreliefstore.com/servlet/StoreFront

    Thanks for the reply.

    I did see where it was originally prices as an intorductory offer but then I was another post by you saying that they decided to keep the price.

    Regardless....I just ordered a pair to see if it'll help with my chronically sore tailbone.

    I'll report back here once I have a chance to test them out.

    Please do. Will be good to get an independent review.

    Bought two pair from these guys. Problem was no croch padding. Droped about $100.00. Sent them back. Two weeks after delivery conformation and no refund. Called and got voice mail. No response. Help me out man!
