For the record, I do it because it's my commitment to cycling, and it keeps me focused on getting on that bike and riding.

It's a good way to be held accountable. When people ask about it, I say, "I'm a cyclist..." which means I have to back it up by actually riding.

And further ... I like the way it looks and feels, and it makes my leg tat look fantastic

I did when I raced. too much ribbing if I didn't. Too lazy now. But every time I put on sun screen I re-consider shaving. Sun screen goes on much easier shaved. Like the massage oils.

I do, and my legs are a lot to shave. Road rash is the main reason I keep the hairless.

No, I don't.

I'm a miniature Sasquatch in underpants and proud of it. I barely like to shave my face let alone anything else.

I never did. I don't plan to. I don't shave my face either. Hairy as a bear.

I would need a razor made of titanium instead of a bike with the amount of hair I would have to shave. Perhaps even coated with a diamond edge. In the slim chance I end up looking like Lance in a few years, maybe we'll talk.

The extra drag keeps the training just a hair more intense. I shave my face and skull and leave the rest.
