sorry if this has been asked before...i ran a quick search and didn't see anything. anyway...i live in texas, and it doesn't get that cold here, but every once in a while, it gets a tad cold for just shorts. so, today as i was at target (let's not discuss this store, please, atleast not in this thread), i saw some running tights that supposedly wick the moisture away, blah blah. they were only 12 bucks. now, i've been reading, and i know how people feel about cheap clothes, and how they don't last that long, etc. i agree, but like i said, i won't be wearing them that much, and if they only last for this winter, that's fine, because they were only 12 dollars. ok, so, to get to my question: they obviously don't have any padding in them like normal bike shorts. is it cool to wear my spandex over/under these tights? anyone have any expereince with this? i would like the padding if i can get it for the longer rides, but i can't justify spending 40 dollars on some real bike tights that i will only wear a few times a year. are there any other alternatives? thanks.
