Any recomendations on what to wear shorts wise for an off road mountain bike duathlon ?

I'm thinking my road cycling bib shorts aren't going to be comfy on the run. Had a very quick look on Wiggle for tri shorts but lots of choice and quite pricy.

The ride is 24km and the saddle on my MTB is practically a sofa compared to road bike so just normal running shorts ?

I have run in bib shorts for du's and no problem, the run was 6k both sides of the bike. do a test run before the event and happy brick training!

I have done an MTB duathlon in running shorts figuring I spend a lot of time out of the saddle on the MTB. That was fine. I'd also only bought the bike the day before but that's another story entirely.

My theory is that if you are racing then dress to race.

Then again I bet the saddle on my MTB is not exactly comfy

24 km on a bike isn't that far so if you can't afford new shorts I would hazard running shorts would be ok on the bike but cycling shorts a pain on the run
