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

    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.

    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.

    2012 Colnago C59 in PR99 color scheme (Campy Record 11s)

    If I had taken Italian instead of Spanish in college, I would.
    As much as you paid for that Beemer [Mercedies, Audi, Escalade], I'm surprised it didn't come equipped with turn signals.

    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 "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.

    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.

    No. Most emphatically, NO.

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

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

    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.

    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.
