    Recommend me some 3/4 riding pants?

    In other words I guess we could call then knickers but I get lots of crap at most bike stores. They're only for women, blah blah blah. I'd like something I could commute in, run to the store or even go MTBing in. I just like being more covered but not worry about dragging pants through the chain sometimes.

    I have a few pair of Prana Nemesis knickers. REI's Slickrock knickers are nice too, but out of stock until the spring.

    Also Chicago WIG and Chrome. I've not tried the latter, but I hear good things.

    Ibex wool knickers are quite nice. And quite pricey. I like them a lot.

    I've seen those knickers for women and have been interested and when I can't find my size I then see the pink label and walk away pissed. I would use baseball pants if they weren't so high waisted.
    cycling is like baseball ~ it doesn't take much to make it interesting

    Hell, I have a few pair of thrift shop slacks that I've just cut with a straightedge and a razor. No sewing needed*!

    Figure out what size you are in women's sizes. Problem solved!

    Anything you wear below your hips will work!


    I always see guys roll up there pant legs while riding, at least around here they do. While off of the bike they wear the pants like normal.
