    Well, I WAS a Sugoi Devotée...

    It really irks me that Sugoi has dropped their top-end women's bike short (RSE), but not for the men's line -- they can still buy their RSE shorts. There is a $70 difference in price between the top-of-the-line short and the 2nd model down. I have worn both and that $70 is entirely in the chamois and worth every penny. Jerks. Time to start looking at new shorts, since Sugoi's stitching tends to stink and I've sent at least 2 pair back, in the past. I won't wear poorly-constructed shorts with a garbage chamois. I'll wear shorts that are falling apart if the chamois is awesome.

    They can spout some BS that the higher-end stuff didn't sell to women, but the quickest way to turn off devoted customers is to no longer offer a product that they're willing to pay $240 for. I learned the hard way that all the $100 saddles in the world don't make me as happy as my $260 Selle SMP saddles. The same holds true for shorts. If they cause me pain, I won't wear them, regardless of what a bargain they might be.

    So, can anyone who has worn the RSE recommend similar chamois...?
