    OT: Let's talk about underwear

    On any given day most of us are most likely riding in jeans.

    What kind of underwear has proven to you guys to be the most comfortable for riding?

    Boxers work for me, but all my saddles have a space in the middle.

    short rides around the city = cotton boxers.
    sweaty long rides = bike shorts. just wear them under your regular clothes if you're staying inside the city.

    Hate hate hate hate boxers. The ride up, and make it look like I have something to hide when I'm sans pants.

    Tight boxer briefs are great for all activities including "lets get looking so good"

    why is it sad? Comfort on a bike is a pretty reasonable thing to discuss.

    Yeah, I don't wear any. It's not a problem with quality jeans, or most pants.

    Boxer briefs, or as mentioned before bike shorts under the jeans. It was murder finding boxer briefs that didnt have really long leg bits, but REI makes a spandex-y variety that are SUPER comfy, and american apparel boxer briefs are mad comfy, the gap also makes some stellar underoos.

    boxer briefs are the worst for me, there are fine for the first hour i wear them but after that they start to bunch up. so i wear boxer's but for the summer i am going to get some bike shorts for when its warmer out for the longer rides.
    i like riding my bike.

    When it's warm, I like boxer briefs, but my favorite for comfort is Smartwool long underwear. Long rides call for bike shorts, though.

    My quads are so large (or my boxer briefs suck) that right after the wash and about 10 minutes of wearing, the boxer briefs stretch out and roll the f9ck up.

    Briefs 100% for me.

    Usually boxer briefs. Regular boxers ride up way too much to be comfortable.
