    Bike Shorts that Extend Below the Knees?

    I often wear knee warmers with my bike shorts, but it would be better to have shorts that extend to the top of the calf. Do those exist?

    Thanks,

    Al

    Yeah, called mid calf or (more commonly) knickers (Brits probably have a different name)... any decent on-line store should have multiple versions available... harder to find in bike stores out of season.

    Also go to velowear.com. Good clothing, decent prices, and made here in California.

    Why not just cut off some pants to the length you want?
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Pearl Izumi and Performance both make knickers that go below your knees.
