    Maybe fishnets and stiletto heels would work better. I'm pretty sure you could get them with cleats.

    I saw someone cycling the other day with stiletto heeled boots on the other day. Not sure about the fishnets, though I'm guessing they shaved their legs as well.

    go to the health food store and get some "kiss my face shave lotion" its the best for shaving your legs. it lasts way longer than anything else and doesn't have all the ****ty stuff that regular shave gel has in it. it is also very gentle.

    Be ready to shave everyday if you like that up close personal time with your sweetie. On the other hand it will distract form you forgetting to shave your face.

    I bought a cheap electric and hit the shins with it everyday and only razor shaved once a week, worked pretty good.

    And, be prepared to freeze your legs, it is hard to believe how much difference a little bit of hair makes warmthwise.

    hehehe...my girlfriend is a little freaked out by it. she says they don't feel like my legs anymore...oh well, she'll get used to it.

    i think i'll probably do them every other day...or whenever i shower, whichever... and warmth isn't really a huge issue as i live in CA now. it gets chilly, but i've got long socks that i can wear, or worse comes to worse, i get a little cold. my girlfriend can also knit me a nice pair of legwarmers! WOOHOO!!!!!

    i think we'll be 'testing' out the de-furred legs soon enough...i hope so anyway.

    Some women love guys with shaved legs and some hate it. You should try the "shave each other" thing.....it can get interesting.

    Must be nice to be in a warm place. My legs won't see sun until April and I usually don't shave until May.

    I use electric about twice a week. It is kind of like a pre-race ritual for me.

    I just shaved my back.

    I used to shave - then I was expected to walk the talk (or the impression). Now I just show up to races all furry, baggy shorts and a tee-shirt - somtimes with a full beard. Last year I out sprinted a guy in a full skin suit - being all aero did'nt help him - plus my wife can take it or leave it - so it's not worth the trouble for me any more. However, it does look pretty cool - but only to other cyclists - or guys wearing those stelleto heels.

    Most love it! I go out to bars and I have had quite a few to rub my legs and tell me how sexy they look!

    There have been a few to tell me that it is such a turn off to see men that shave other parts of their body, other than their face; it's very few though!

    Try an old double edge, it really does reduce razor burn. Maintaining with and electric and only using the razor once a week or so works pretty good, if you want to try and keep it up. That being said, this may be the first year I go unshorn in four years, maybe.

    i used a gillette sensor...two blades. my calves came out of it alright, but my thighs look like hell...STILL. the only thing i have for an electric is my haircutting clippers...which, work alright, but not really well enough.

    oh well.
