Hi all

I have just bought some leg warmers and find them very warm and comfortable to. What sort of temperature will they be ok until and will i have to find some tights for the colder days? Opinions welcomed.

    The leg warmers i have are the roubaix fleece lined ones, if it was cold enough for them i found my crotch got cold so i would go for a full leg tight or bibs when it gets cold.
    This time f year i am using runners tights over standard shorts and mid winter i use ron hill bikesters over standard shorts .

  • Leg warmers as long as you can or until it's so cold you have to go for the roubaix tights !
    The leg warmers / shorts combo is much more comfortable than long tights (esp roubaix) I find.

    I find my knee warmers (which actually cover most of my legs) are fine down to about 5degC.
