Bike shorts

Hey, i wore biking shorts today for the first time. Its like a walking masturbation, it took a lot to keep from it from popping out, too bad it didnt hold it in better.

is part of a discussion in the Underwear, Clothing, and Appearance Issues forum that includes topics on What to wear (to show or not to show), what's comfortable, what's not....

I wear them often enough when I go for a run. Some middle-aged woman looked surprised, and a younger mom said hi.

I should clarify that the shorts I wore at the time weren't actually cycling shorts with a chamois or gel pad -- they were simply black compression shorts.

The mother I mentioned probably also could see a little detailing since the fabric is basically a dense mesh and the setting sun was at her back.. lol

I only wear bike shorts with the crotch pad for rides over 25 miles. Otherwise, give me Champion mesh shorts.

That's what I should have worn Monday -- my ass started to hurt after 20, and I still had almost 20 to go.

Were you riding in an organized cycling event? 40 miles is a good ride. The shorts with pads work for ass and crotch comfort, but I don't like my dick being squashed. I rode in the Rosarito to Ensenada 50 mile bike ride in April. I'm not a big fan of lycra, but who knows how 50 miles would have been wearing gym shorts? Most of the riders were NOT wearing bicycle shorts. I have good ones, so I use them.

Why don't you guys wear like a pair of shorts over them? I always thought that was their intended use, to provide compression and support under shorts. You wouldn't go for a jog in a jockstrap would you?

Nope, cycling shorts are made to be worn solo. Nothing under them, nothing over them. The main concern is how the seams are stiched on the shorts, and how they're gonna rub ya.

If you want the padding, but could do without the HELLO WORLD look, you might want to look into the baggy cycling shorts. The advantages of the pads, and the seams are flat sewn so you don't have that to worry about either.

I just wear the regular lycra shorts when I'm doing longer organized rides. Particularly the annual MS 150 mile ride.

Oh I thought they were talking about using them for running... because that's practically going naked. I mean I would go naked for runs, but I don't think the neighbors would be cool with that.

I don't think under armor designed their compression shorts for this purpose though, and those are the ones I have the most experience with. I know of the padded bike ones because my step mom bikes though.

There are lycra fitness shorts for men that are made to be worn as outerwear. Not for the shy guy. They are not essentially much different in appearance from compression shorts. My thoughts: If you look hot in it, wear it; if you don't, pass.

Nah, it wasn't organized at all, just out by myself down to Mt. Vernon and back. It was probably my longest ride in the last 20 years, too. I wore a cycling jersey (the kind with the drop tail & rear pockets) and Under Armour compression shorts. Nice & light, but cripes, the saddle certainly doesn't have enough padding on its own.. lol

When I'm just out to ride, I much prefer tights over even bike-specific shorts. Baggy shorts, or even not-so-baggy shorts, still have extra fabric that gets tugged around and can catch on the nose of the seat. Earlier this year, I wore a pair of gym shorts that I could barely keep on my body because the saddle would always yank at the crotch and pull them down from my waist.

Plus, wearing just one layer of fabric is always more comfortable when it's hot outside.

I'll wear regular-looking shorts if I have a destination in mind (restaurant, museum, or whatever), but when I'm simply going out to ride for a while and come back home, I'm always going to wear tight shorts of some kind. It's a little bit exhibitionistic, sure, but there are definitely some functional reasons as well.

Plus, I got a nice "Hi" from a young woman at a stoplight..
