A Drawback to Big, Big Thighs

We discussed quad size in one of Mr. Beanz recent threads. There's a drawback to having big cycling thighs, namely ripping your pants throwing a leg over the top tube. Currently there's an interesting, and curious, thread in the commuting forum on this subject, and possible solutions:

Big Thighs = Ripped Crotch in Pants

Consider this an early entry for Funniest Thread of the Year.

I've counted all my fingers and toes and still can't even begin to figure out how many years of therapy I may need to recover from reading that thread

Wow... I was fine with it until those pictures showed up... I think I'm going to rinse my eyes out with soap.

Hmmmm.... being affiliated with a forum that N+1 runs rampant then complains of consumerism I'm guessing hiding in the closet of the OP of that thread is a green peace "kit". consumerism
