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)

Could be bad quality shorts. You're going commando in cycling shorts right? Wearing underwear+cycling shorts is all bad news.

most cycling appearal should have sweat-wicking fabric, as in your sweat wicks to the outside like oil would a candle and evaporate very fast with headwind so you're constant drynessness

I'm notorious for being sweaty. I was diagnosed( by myself) with sfs, Sweaty Foot Syndrome.. it was tragic, i even diagnosed a few of my friends with it too. I did however find a cure for the sfs. BUT let's not get off track here. When i'm biking, i'm biking hard so sweat is gonna happen, but that's not the original topic of all this... I'll give my shams another chance today and if i get mad ride up then I'm gonna go to sports authority and pick up some UA

If you don't want to wear bibs (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU DO!), boxer-briefs > boxers as far as bunching and riding up is concerned.

Just get medium quality bibs, you don't be sorry.

Bibs will still be better than anything made of cotton. The padding is there to reduce chaffing more than cushion

Nike Pro compression shorts are tight-fitting and don't ride up, if you don't like padding.

Don't get ones with lots of padding. Or gel padding. And don't get ones that are loose fitting. You don't want the chamois moving around on you. That causes numbness and saddle sores.

I got 2 sets of these last summer at $60 each.



for when I'm doing CX or doing singletrack with my sons.

Otherwise, I'm always in Volcom shorts with UA warm weather boxers (the medium length - the long is too long and the short rolls up on my thighs and bunches near my pelvic bone); American Eagle loose fit low rise - same drawers. Never chaffing, never an issue with sweat even when I'm hustling.

I'm riding a broken in Brooks B17, for saddle relevance.
