Can you explain the diference between baggy shorts and single track shorts ? Also can you give a brief description of other shorts such as sprint, DH, freeride etc
I am looking for an allrounder to be honest and I`m struggling in which to decide. I`m also wondering is there a lot of difference in fit and tightness on the legs between them all or are they all fairly baggy ? Endura and Troy Lee Designs are my preferred brands

Thanks

Answer: 
I think you need to first identify what type of riding you are going to be doing...Downhill / All Mountain or cross country / Trail? I ride XC/Trail and wear tights, not baggies, as do most of the other people I ride with. I started with baggy shorts because that seemed "normal" for a male to wear. Sure enough, as I was advised by my LBS, I switched to lycra. There is less chance of getting hung up on your saddle with constantly getting up and down and shifting forward and backward. I don't need 5 pockets on my shorts when I ride...I think if you do DH or AM, the longer, baggy shorts provide additional protection and durability that you won't get from Lycra. Another perk of Lycra is that when I hit the road, I can wear the same shorts...

Answer: 
Different brands measure their sizes differently. Your question is very vague.
Best thing would be to check the size guides on the website or on the manufacturers website.
