Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

i like these a lot and own a whole bunch of them, but have started to notice that when i sweat and keep riding they get itchy. that's no fun. i want something equivelent to these that don't get uncomfortable.

Bike shorts are underwear. They're also outerwear. That's what makes them so great/simple.

Interesting thread... I was wanting to get a weeks worth of riding gear without spending $200+ in cycle shorts

Currently wear semi-wicking boxer briefs from Wal-Mart, but when they get wet they get really stretchy and loose, and become more like boxers.
