    Riding with pants

    Do I have to get shorts? I like pants. Is there anything special about riding in pants? Such as the chain?

    I wear pants when I ride in the winter. Just roll up the pant leg by the drive train.

    Pants feel too tight below the belt. I like abercrombies cargo shorts, but I wonder what the oakley MTB shorts and pants are like.

    i wear pants when its cold enough, i really like biking in jeans, but i have a bashguard so if the jeans aren't baggy it won't rip whereaqs without a bashguard you would need to tie up the pants not to rip them. otherwise i ride in camo cargo pants, because they don't show any dirt, and they are tough and thick to stop the pain when i fall
