Butts in Cycling Shorts

Does anyone find cycling gear on people attractive? I find the "I crapped my pants look" to be pretty much unflattering on everyone....

I often think.. wow, I bet they look great in normal clothes. ALthough, I am attracted to people in cycling clothes because I know they cycle... its a paradox really.

i don't think i've ever seen any cyclists that have a "i crapped my pants" look. Most cyclists wear tight clothese that conform to their toned body

Personally, I'd rather see an attractive woman wearing a thin coat of baby oil than any cycling outfit. But that's probably just me.

Perhaps you haven't seen one of the most frequently reposted pics from recent SoCal BikeForums rides. The original post is here. The pic is below. (Yes, that's me right in front of them, on my Roubaix's final group ride. No, that's not why this pic gets posted so often.

I beg to differ. Men look great in cycling shorts. You pretty much can spot a true bull if you're looking at just the right angle.

Yes, but they (the shorts) look best on the bedroom floor.

You're rivaling Karldar for the funniest post I've read tonight!

In answer to the original question, women in cycling shorts can look VERY sexy!

I'd post some nice-looking butts in cycling-shorts, but we'd get this thread locked and deleted...
