Weird questiona bout wearing bib shorts for guys

These types of shorts are SOOO much more comfie, but after trying my first pair this weekend, I gotta ask, how the heck do you PEE? I had to take off my shirt, pull the straps off, and was practically naked before I could take care of nature's call.

We need bib shorts with zippers!

Ride in yer jocks mate. Either that or do the old elastic band, hot water bottle and pipe trick. Either way you'll get some weird looks.

I usually just pulled the leg up to my crotch and accessed the equipment that way.

I wear an under armour shirt under the straps so when I take a pee it doesn't look like im nekkid.

The under armour also wicks away sweat too!

Keep your jersey on. Pull up the bottom of the jersey. Pull down the front part of the bib below your thing. The straps stretch enough and strong enough not to break.
While back somebody post a photo of road racers peeing road side during the race. The photo was showing only their backs but it's obvious what they were doing. None of them were taking off anything.

You don't have to sit to pee.

Yeah, as a member of the International Half Size Club, many of us are left wondering about things such as that. I follow up on every advertisment I receive in my email about penis enlargers. One day I'll be able to say "Water's cold ain't it".

I think everyone wears base layers under the straps, but you can't wear a jersey underneath.

...and it's deep, too!

Y'know, if I could whip it out of the bottom in my shorts I'd never bother to ride. I'd just sit in the bar in my bike shorts showing off my bulge and licking my eyebrows.

I don't wear a base layer under my bib. I live in Texas. If you've never been here, it's hot.

Yeah, I want to say that too but I'll build up to it I think. In the meantime I've got another six penis enlargers to unpack. back soon.

I just reach in and hook the edge of the bibs with my thumb. Then pull down while bending over slightly and reaching in with the other hand gropping for the "lower" thumb which I extend over the edge of my bibs and drain. I follow the reverse procedure to pack it all away.

I can pull down the front of my Pearl Izumi Microsensor bibs far enough to get the monster out!

I've done the pull up the leg thing, but it was a lot easier to follow the advice of some of the above posters and pull down on the front of the shorts while bending over a little.

I tend to drink way too much water when I ride, so I've had lots of practice.

You've got to shake it enough to dry it off, but not so much that you're just playing with yourself.

apparently for some of us, sheer penile weight does that anyhow.

I think I'll get off the bike and head for the bushes. When you've only got 2cm of spewing fury, you're likely to end up covered in wee anyway.

Much better to get off I think.

Just make sure you don't have a snake handler behind you when you indicate your turn. Could be damned embarrasing.
