Do you feel sexy in...

...your spandex cycling attire? I know I sure as hell do. I love the way it feels and the way it looks. There's just something about that tight, shinny, and stretchy material on my body that makes me feel sexy as hell while riding and when I go into a shop to pick up a drink. It without a doubt makes my rides that much more enjoyable.

Discuss.

I could care less about my cycling clothing...I mean sure it looks nice and may attract the ladies but in no way does it make my ride more enjoyable to go out and show myself off to the public. I bike for the sheer joy and exercise, no clothing is going to make a ride good or bad.

I feel sexy in dirty overalls. I feel sexy in my golf clothes. I feel sexy in a suit and tie. I feel sexy in my cycling gear. Bottom line: I always feel sexy!

My lycra bibs and jersey don't make me look sexy. Maybe the shaved legs ..... but we'll save that for another thread.
Anyway, when I'm "dressed" for riding, I think it makes others think, "If you're going to dress like that, you'd better be able to ride hard and fast and not just be a poser."

It wouldn't be appropriate to discuss here. At least with spandex, its related to cycling

Do I feel sexy in lycra? Not really. I feel like I'm about to ride my bike.

Nope - actually, I think it kinda looks dumb. But, it's functional and effective, so I wear it.

You don't have to pretend. You can just ask. I'm not shy.
