Both times she has done it. Now I don't have time for that crap. Specially since I cut myself constantly with the effin razor.

You shave your huevos? Is that to make you go faster or to assist in cleaning a wound in case of a crash? :twitchy:

When I had my first angioplasty, a young, sweet looking nurse shaved my groin area where the catheter was going to be inserted. I had to keep thinking about baseball and cold showers to keep my mind away from the young lady manscaping me. :love:

When the first stent became occluded within the first month, the doc had to perform another angioplasty. (I eventually needed a third angioplasty, within two months of the first one.)

By the time of the third angioplasty the doc decided to go up the left femoral artery.

That left me fully manscaped. This of course has nothing to do with shaving legs or bike riding. :roflmao2:

If I had taken Italian instead of Spanish in college, I would.

Let me guess, it was a recovery day.

If you can't cut yourself, that might come in handy for some of the fellas in this thread who'd prefer to shave their beans instead of their churros. Wait, that didn't come out sounding like I thought it would.


It's great. For legs, the plastic guard can be taken off for a close shave. I'll never touch a razor. With the plastic guards there are different length measurements for whatever else you decide to do with it.

I love this place, thanks for the laugh

Why wouldn't I?

Where I live - a guy will be beat up if he shaves his legs.

Astrozombie 05-06-14 08:47 PM

I "buzz" everything in the summertime as i have long hair now (on my head) so i try to make the best of it with the rest of my hair. Yes even "down there" and i would try to do the "rear" but it's too much hassle (plus i heard it will be really painful)

Shaving the pits also helps with odor

Strangers waiving at you, wanting to know if you shave your legs, comparing your components ... I don't know where all that's leading but I'm not there. I just ride my bike.

In South Florida? Are the gangs of septuagenerian New Jerseyites that bad?

Retired2013 05-06-14 08:54 PM

Don't be fooled by them old guys. They have a lot of anger- especially when all of the handicap parking spaces are taken. It can be a little rough!

If I were a girl I would shave my legs. Or maybe if I were an Olympic swimmer or something. Since I'm neither of those, no I don't shave my legs.

rodentcloister 05-06-14 10:23 PM

No. Most emphatically, NO.

NaturalFork 05-06-14 10:27 PM

I cycle in cargo pants. Shaving my legs will not help anything.

Reynolds 05-06-14 10:48 PM

I've considered it a couple of times, but I'm too lazy to do it regularly. Shaving my face is enough for me.

Samfujiabq 05-06-14 11:15 PM

Yes,I had a few sparse hairs here and there,so now they're all gone.

Of course I do. It is the rule.

therhodeo 05-07-14 07:29 AM

Absolutely. It feels better, I like the way it looks and so does my wife. This is coming from someone who grew up in a small farm town in Kansas and still lives in a very redneck area. Never had a negative comment except from my sister who I get constant negative comments from especially because I'm skinny now.

kansukee 05-07-14 07:35 AM

My girlfriend waxes them for me , actually. Lasts a lot longer than if I shaved them and it isn't that painful_ for me, at least.

You make it sound like cycling isn't a huge sport in Spain.
