    Yeah, as an uberclyde I feel like a dork. So I slip a pair of thin baggy shorts over the Lycra and it works for me. Every now and then the loose shorts will get caught on the nose of the saddle, but...

    It would be easier for us to help you if you were less vague than "South End to Allston." Not asking for your home & work address, but how about a couple of nearby intersections?
