Subject: DeSoto Riviera Tri Shorts
De Soto Riviera Tri Shorts have finally gone on sale after watching them now for months. I've heard good things about them, but I wasn't sure how they'd fit. Does anyone use them here? Anyone with big thighs? I have a big posterior and thighs....although muscular (well somewhat) :-)

I usually wear 2XU because they're a little roomier in the thigh and back....overall they just seem larger at a 2XL than others.

Thanks for any input!

Be aware of the length if you haven't considered it yet. Riviera's are shorter (9.5in on the XL compared to 10.5in on Forza XL and 11in on Forza XXL). I have 2 Forza's and love them. I have very thick thighs/posterior and they fit great (I am 6ft 235). Let me check and see if they r XL or XXL and I will get back to you.

Edited: Both of mine r XL. I have one in the shorts and one in the bib. I absolutely love the bib if you can afford it. Helps avoid the front of the short waistband cutting into ur stomach on the bike. I've heard DeSoto has superb customer service (I haven't had to use them) so you might try calling them and see what size they recommend.

The first time out and 50 meters in my oxygen was in very short supply. I realized that all that running didn't do much for this sport.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.
