Cycling Shorts Question: NO MORE TIGHT WAISTBANDS!

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

I was having a rough time of it once, asked a serious question in one of the other subforums, and because the majority decided it was time for ribbing, I got pissed off very easily. At this point, I realize everyone here is a joker, so I just need to put on my joker glasses to cope.
Sure you're right about the ribbing, but it isn't hard to see the good advice buried in it. Pretty obvious and also nearly unanimous.

Yeah, the good advice is there and fairly evident. I just think the guy expected a slightly more intellectual discourse on the subject matter. And when he didn't get it, it was frustrating. Not saying he's right, just saying he's correct.

After several tried to answer the OP's question he comes back with an insult towards the 99% for their oafish response. If the OP was looking for intellectual discourse, I'd think he would actually try to engage in the discussion rather than come back only once three days later after his OP to insult those trying to help. Thin skin.

It's so hard these days to find a place where you can have a good intellectual discourse about bike short waistbands.

It's always amusing how the newbies seems to get all high and mighty with their knicks in a twist when people really do try to help.

Reading your responses was 1000 times worse than my tight waistband. I'll live with it. See ya.
Yeah, I find tight waistbands made me grumpy too, then I discovered bibs and my whole life changed.

I recommend this cap; you never know, maybe it will help with your waist band fit issues ...

Reminds me of the joke about the guy who had bad headaches The doctor told him he needed to be castrated to relieve the headaches. After the operstion he still got no relief. Then a cycling buddy told him all he needed to do was switch to bibs. Worked like a charm. Whoops.
