    None. I don't use cycling shorts, but I bet I've seen the answer to this a hunnert times.
    Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.

    ordinary shorts with briefs. If they dangle, they'll tangle.

    Mine never got tangled.

    Did you mean the shorts, or . . . ?

    Target sells "Cycling briefs". Basically briefs without all the seams or a hole for the boy to peek out of :-)

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    If you're wearing cycling shorts (padded) you don't need and want underwear.
    If you're wearing street shorts wear cycling underwear, like these.

    Regular underwear is for non-cycling activities.

    2013 Cannondale CAAD 10 2 "Racing Edition"--The bike shop owner said it's toast. R.I.P.
    2014 or 2015 CAAD 10 3 coming soon. Decision time.
