Bikes: giant ocr3, adapted to triathlon as best it can be. 1976 kia "star" women's "racing" (soon to be a beater commuter bike, it's brown!)
of the shorts i own, the ones with the best chamois have the tightest leg elastic. after 30 miles, my thighs look like odd sausages (despite all that muscle...they're tight!), and after the ride is done, i flip the elastic up in relief. they leave little elastic lines. it sucks. but i wouldn't ride in the sexy short shorts for more than 30 miles, thanks to some lame-0 fleece thing they somehow got passed as a chamois. padding, apparently, optional. when i can throw another $70 at some good shorts i will. till then...flippy flippy.
