    What's in your pants?

    I usually ride in lycra. However, here in 'small town USA' I feel out of place running into the post office in my form-fitting shorts. I like boxers & I've tried tighty whiteys, but neither are keeping my 'equipment' out of the way.

    Lots of male folks on this forum are wearing normal shorts/knickers/pants while out on the bike. So, what's in your pants to keep the ol' twig & berries under control?

    No one really wants to see my fat a$$ in lycra anymore so I usually wear baggy MTB shorts or just wear regular shorts over my lycra.

    i don't like the way that bike shorts feel if i'm going to be doing something other than riding. that is, i don't want to wear them if i have to go to class, am getting drunk, buying groceries, etc.

    i just roll in jeans or regular pants. my tighter jeans cause uncomfortable manipulation of the nizzuts so i don't like to wear those unless i'm just going straight to work or the store. if i'm going for some longer all day ride or whetever then cycle shorts under the jeans. otherwise the usual boxer or commando set-up.

    someone should make jeans with chammy though

    another opt. ive used under normal shorts are some old triathalon shorts - lycra with a teeny-tiny thin chammy in them, just enough to avoid chafing but not so much that you feel like you're wearing a diaper (unless that's your thing...)
    When the going gets weird the weird turn pro

    Army surplus pants. They are good because the seam doesn't go throught the crotch area and chafe the boyos. The seam goes around in the back. That works for me.

    Yeah, when it comes to riding in regular drawers (boxers, in my case), it's all about the baggy pants. Also, it's important not to have a belt that cuts into your gut when you're hunched over for riding purposes. Also, you get good support *and* look tough if you keep one hand on the bars and one hand clutching your crotch at all times.

    riding in regular boxers has always been unbearable for me. after i've ridden for a few minutes it feels like they're trying to crawl their way out of the back of my pants, but then again i wear tight pants so to each their own... I do second the under armour though that stuff is great. I've also got some armour knockoff stuff from target that's pretty nice as well. Cheers.

    I have never been able to figure this one out. Every option ends up being uncomfortable in its own way. If its anything over 20-30 miles its the bike shorts all the way. Otherwise... I am on the fence as to wether the allowing the john thomas the freedom to move and find a good location in boxers or securing everything with under armor type drawers is the best.

    more important than getting the boys out of the way (accomplished in my case by a simple mounting procedure that shifts them forward and up--baggy pants and boxers) is keeping the area between the boys house and the black hole from getting too much pressure. I usually end up riding one cheek at a time on the ridge, unless I'm spinning fast and enough pressure is off the vein-zone.

    boxer breifs, one size too small

    My taint has grown accustomed to my saddle well enough that this works just fine on any ride under twenty miles...

    problem is that it's a really old saddle that needs to be retired, but I can't find a replacement anywhere.
