    My tights are hurting my....hmm....ping pong balls.

    I wore my specialized tights for the first time yesterday. Damn, my balls are squished tighter than a can of peas. Midway through the ride, the pain generally increases. Then it becomes momentary sharp pain. Is this normal to have your balls squished? Or is it just me and i should get a larget size. BTW, its xl and im a size 36.

    On the Specialized website they list a size 36 as an XXL. XL is 32-34.
    This is for shorts. They didn't show any tights.

    Do you have any Specialized shorts? What size are they? Do they also fit "tight"?

    Get some larger tights. Give them ping-pong balls room to breath!

    Maybe you're just that type of person. I personally can't wear anything tight in my crotch area. They have 0 inch travel. My little friend craves for freedom.
    Prepare for the worst - that way any surprise will be a pleasant one.
