Q About my first pair of riding clothes
With the help of you guys here on the forum, I got myself my first bicycle in fifteen years and have really enjoyed riding it. The only problem has been my lack of appropriate attire - not enough old ratty t-shirts to share between gym days and biking days. I took advantage of the recent sale at Nashbar to pick up a cheap riding top and shorts with a chamois.
The clothes arrived yesterday, and I tried them on, but there's some confusion on my part. Do I tuck the shirt, which is long, in to the shorts, or let it hang over? Also, and more importantly, are the shorts supposed to feel like I'm wearing a gigantic diaper stretching from the back of my butt to the front of my groin? I know that they're for riding, not walking around, but seriously - even with the shorts pulled up as high as possible, it feels like there's three pounds of Pampers between my legs.
I appreciate any advice! Thanks!
