Tights shouldn't have chamois in them, IMHO. You could ride in tights with chamois but it might get a tad cooler than I like if I had to take them off Like Machka said, it's all about layers. You remove or replace layers as needed. You could also wear bib tights and bib shorts but that's a lot of stuff on the shoulders.
