    Riding Garb

    Hey Everybody -

    What do you guys typically ride in? My get up as of late has been a pair of padded spandexers and then I wear a pair of baggy cut off camo pants over the top, some sort of biking sock (cars r coffins if they are clean), a north face dry fit t or really any t-shirt that is clean, my specialized shoes, a pair of specialized gloves with the little ulnar pads, and my giro noggin protector.

    So what about you guys?


    (on a side note - does anybody know of some really cool mtb clothing companies besides ones based off of bike brands i.e. specialized, kona, etc.)

    Baggy shorts and a jersey or just a t-shirt...sometimes jeans...never spandex.

    My gloves are the specialized ones with the kevlar protecting the knuckles.

    Sombrio kicks some serious ass. Owned and operated by riders who still ride.

    I ride...everything. The only thing I guess I don't do is really LONG xc rides (my endurance stinks...I can't mentally do a long ride, I needs naps and stuff). I do dh, I hike-a-bike, I huck, I even go to the park and dj park. If I am on my wheels I love life.

    I have done longish rides (3 to 6 hours) and no my junk never hurt. Might be because I wear those spandex type boxxers (whatever the heck they are called) but why would having my junked bunched up affect pain...I know doing a drop and landing, ahem, wrong...hurts

    i am not able to go out in public with JUST spandex on - my manhood on display for all of creation to gander at is just not cool with me - plus i feel like a tool. I was looking around earlier tonight and found this company, seems like a lot of these clothing companies are based out of the UK, so guess i am pretty funked on getting anything from there without paying an arm and a leg. Cool stuff regardless.

    Spandex shorts, a cycling jersey, socks, cheap mechanix fast fit gloves, glasses, a helmet, a coolmax cap under the helmet, a camelback, knee warmers if it is under 60 (I have had knee problems in the past), an orange vest and helmet cover when the deer ***** hunters hit the woods.

    If find the spandex definitely helps me.

    Adidas 2 in 1 lycra underneath some heavy cargo shorts. Usually a light jersey or maybe a T-shirt on top. Of course then there is my helmet, gloves, and MTB shoes. I need to find a good pair of clear lensed glasses otherwise I wear some Oakley A-wires.

    One of the reasons I went with the Kerosenes were the adjustable non-slip nosepads. That combined with the temples (also non-slip) seem to fit and hold on to my face pretty well.
