Is there such a thing as padded short/tights/bibs with a CUP in the family jewels area?

If so what brands and where do i get them.

Also i can only seem to find Black shorts/bibs/tights, im looking for red or white or a red/black/white combo. Any ideas?

thanks....

    I've got some Trek VW bibs that are white with red stripes and black rear leg panels. Not sure if still on sale though.
    I've added a signature to prove it is still possible.

    Bought these a couple of weeks ago, most comfy shorts i have but the groin bit i wouldn't exactly describe as a cup. Most shorts have padding that comes up the front a bit i thought :?

    If you don't have any luck you could always cut away the front two sections of a polyestyrene egg carton, line with a little light foam padding and the jobs a good 'un.

    In fact I might patent the idea. :lol:

    I'm curious - why would you need a cup ? Who hoofs you in the jennies when you're out riding ?

    why would you need a cup ?

    Surely, 'tis a dangerous thing cycling:

    I was delayed, I was way-laid
    An emergency stop, I smelt the last ten seconds of life
    I crashed down on the crossbar
    And the pain was enough to make
    A shy, bald, Buddhist reflect
    And plan a mass murder

    Its lycra ? It stretches ? Nobody needs extra arse space and surely thats bigger than your 'bits' ?

    You could go the 'word up' way ?

    we are getting a bit personal now - perhaps when you find the right shorts they will come in a left hanging and right hanging option! :lol:

    Politically speaking, that may be a swing to the left or a swing to the right.

    Ok Ok.

    Was out on the bike for about 3 hours the other day. Im wearing a pair of Gore Sonic somthing or other bib shorts.
    Result: Comfortable on the bike. Less comfortable off the bike.

    I recently adjusted my seat and things seem much better comfort wise.

    Im doing 100+ miles this Sunday come rain or shine for Claterbridge Cancer Research.
    Thinking of riding to Liverpool > Wrexham, do 100 miles around Wales & Chesire, then ride home Wrexham > Liverpool.

    So possibly 160+ in one day. Ill give a report + the comfort factor the next day.

    The most ive ever done in 1 day is 60 miles so it should be interesting. :/

    If anyone wants to sponsor me you can send it by pay pal to karl2006@equiimedia.com

    Thanks

    Ill let you know how it goes. :)

    OK. I've seen the joking around, but a "fully fashioned" chamois I would interest me, A cup that gently but firmly held my tackle where I put it word be very nice. I cant be the only male cyclist who has constantly to "adjust his dress" to stay comfortable.

    Is it only the very expensive Assos shorts have a fully fashioned anatomically deigned cod piece?

    There must be a market here for someone like Wiggle!
