I actually DO check for sheerness hence why I know about Gore. I wanted a particular pair of Gore bibs and sadly they were way to sheer.

I have thin cycling friends who should not be having issues with this but they do. One of a teeny slip of a girl who is set to IronMan Canada this summer and she had on some bibs that were a bit "revealing". The dude that joined us was not complaining. So maybe it depends on WHOSE behind you are seeing....LOL

Kinda surprised this tread is still going, so I'll put in my $0.02. I was on a group ride once and saw a young lady who was obviously wearing a g-string under her bibs. :eek:

I did not realize sheer was an issue with biking shorts (at least not in the men's), but now I will check for it. The last thing I want is to embarrass both myself and the riders behind me. On the ther hand, if the female riders feel the need to wear sheer shorts......so be it. :thumb:

Thanks for the info

John

I will take credit for that. I have written it several times--and I am an intellectual.

FWIW, I actually know a Richard "Dick" Small (his real name) and he has none of these issues. ;)

FWIW, I use to work with a guy whose last name was Schmuck. He got married an took his wife's last name. Understandable.

^^^^ This. If you're self conscious about wearing tight fitting road shorts/bibs.

Let's keep the personal attacks out of the conversation. Cleaning up.

I cannot argue with that self assessment at all. You are wise beyond or equal to your years, depending on how old you are.
