    Whatcha got under those shorts?

    Ok, so the ghetto biker is starting to spend money. I bought a set of padded lycra shorts and they are nice, but the padding and i disagree sometimes. I must admit that the post about them helped the purchase, and I'm getting used to them. But what i really want to know is what you got under them shorts? I'm a boxers man, but the seem in my boxers has got to go. I'm thinking about trying a hybrid or even breifs.

    Some may call me a pervert... and there is not much i can do to disagree with that because well.. i do want to know.

    call me sick..

    Thanks

    That's like wearing underwear under your underwear. Bike shorts are designed to be worn on their own. Nothing underneath.

    If you insist on wearing underwear, don't waste your money on bike shorts. The underwear negates the benefits so you're just spending money on something you're not going to use.

    The question should be:

    1. How many of you folks who proclaim the benefits of nothing under your shorts continually write and ask about udder balm, chamois butter, rash, chafing, soreness and who knows what else, and;

    2. How many of us folks who know the "true way" DON'T and AREN'T continually writing and complaining and whining.

    As I recall, it is the folks who proclaim the "no shorts" doctrine who are the VERY SAME FOLKS who write about udder balm, chamois butter, baby powder, corn starch, rash, chafing, soreness and who knows what else.

    From one who knows the "true way" and in 5 years and 14,000 miles has NEVER had to use chamois butter, udder balm, nor any other medication, nor baby powder, and has NEVER had a rash or soreness or chafing.

    So QUIT YOUR COMPLAINING, you folks without undies, or CHANGE WHAT YOU WEAR. I am sick of your whining, griping, chafing and soreness when the true answer is right in your dresser drawer.

    For transportation cycling, I sometimes wear my cycling shorts as underwear beneath my street shorts. I avoid skin problems by using a good saddle (50K mile Brooks Pro) and washing and line-drying (ultraviolet light is a great disinfectant) my shorts very frequently.

    Actually I had less a$s soreness with underwear then without (briefs in particular). Don't know why but for some reason I did, and wore them ever since. Maybe I should give it another try since you "underwear free" people seem so happy.

    Where is the underwear Nazi when you need him spazegun that little pad is a chamois it is NOT designed to pad your ride but to absorb and wick away moisture you will seriously curtail this function by putting anything between your boys and your bike shorts. As far a butter or such I personally have only used it once and it was due to the bad sewing job done on the shorts. I say break in your butt it is as important as breaking in a saddle. So if you feel the need to wear underwear go for it but save your money and don't by cycling shorts then cause you are spending a lot of money for something that isn't going to work anyway.

    No one can make anyone else angry. You make yourself angry by the responses you give to stimuli.

    Maybe you wouldn't be so angry if your bottom wasn't being irritated constantly by your bike shorts??

    Get some underwear and you will smile more.

    I needed that.

    For me: First the chamois liners, then the 'hybrids' (I'm assuming this term refers to the Hanes variety, like briefs but with legs?). Quite comfy. Briefs (Y-fronts) don't thrill me at all, and as for boxers, I believe as Kramer does: "My boys need a house!".

    You only say that to piss me off!

    *Sigh*

    Just when I thought I could be a kinder, gentler Underwear Nazi, this thread comes along!

    OK, Spazegun, let's try to make this as clear as possible. Padded lycra bicycle shorts are designed to be worn next to the skin. Putting anything between the chamois and your butt defeats the purpose of the chamois, can cause chafing, and increases your risk of developing infected saddle sores. Infected saddle sores are not fun. Going commando is fun.

    To sum up: No underwear under your bike shorts, ever. No excuses.

    Got it?

    Good.

    If you are just too embarassed to be seen in public wearing skin tight shorts, you can put some baggies over your lycra or stuff a rolled-up sock down the front before you go into the coffee shop.

    Chamois Creme or a similar product can be a useful weapon in the war against saddle sores. Chamois Creme is your friend. Try it. In the words of Congressman David Dilbeck "It's squishy."

    And Spaze? Don't listen to DnvrFox. He is the devil, Satan, the Great Deceiver, Beelzebub, the Prince of Darkness, Lucifer, the Adversary. He is trying to seduce you to the dark side. He is after your soul! Shun him. Resist him with all your strength. Flee from him. Reject the evils of underwear and be free.

    The acronym for Undewear Nazi is "UN." Hmm. The UN!!

    This is a worldwide conspiracy to not wear undies led by the folks at the UN. You know - those guys who didn't want us to go to war with Iraq - the ones who wanted proof of the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD's) before we bombed the **** out of Iraq.

    There you have it. We have finally found the WMD's, but they exist right here in our midst. PEOPLE WHO WEAR BIKE SHORTS WITOUT UNDIES. That causes chafing, soreness, and a worldwide run on Udder Balm. That causes millions of cows not to have balm on their udders because it has all been bought up by guys (and gals??) creating a milk shortage. What better WMD could there be than a shortage of milk. So, folks, preserve the milk for future generations and wear undies. Help to save the world from the Nazis!!

    It does not appear in our modern world that "proof" is really necessary, does it?

    Anyway, enough of this. Those of us in the "know" will go through life with our undies on, comfortable, without chafing, redness, continous complaining and being quite happy.

    Those of you "not in the know" will go through life writing to forums such as this, continually complaining about the poor condition of their bottoms and asking for miracle solutions such as udder balm, chamois butter, salves, ointments, baby powders, techniques of washing out those germs and bacteria forever imbedded in their chamois (you know - "put it in the sun for 24 hours" or "use a teaspoon of bleach" - desperate attempts kinds of advice) and continuously worrying that they may have never-ending saddle sores. And those of us "in the know" will silently chortle to ourselves - the fool, he ignores the obvious solution. "Hey Dummy, PUT AN EASILY CLEANABLE BARRIER BETWEEN THE CHAMOIS - (SO SUSCEPTIBLE TO CONTNIUOUS GERM AND BACTERIA GROWTH) - AND YOUR BUTT."

    Good day - enough said.
