Are there any decent cycling pants available that aren't tights. I'm new to cycling and can't quite get myself to wear tights in public yet. I'm looking for something quiet (not nylon) that I'll wear commuting on a road bike to work. Any suggestions would be good.
I wear Pearl Izumi Tokyo Tights over cycling shorts but this is only in winter. But I would think they'd work for what you want to do. They're loose fitting and are more like pants rather than tights as the name implies. I got mine on sale thru Performance for $50.00 but this was quite a while ago. I can't even find them on Performance's website anymore. Here's a link to Pearl Izumi's listing for them...
When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking. — Arthur Conan Doyle
Breathable short pants are good for the warm weather.
Lotsa those out there. My company just provided me with several pair of high tech Louis Garneau with the company logo/name on em or I'd still be wearing my 3/4 length pants. All week people have been reading the website name stretched taut across my ass while I'm riding, walking etc. That's what I tell myself...they just want to copy down the website, or memorize it or something
