Just perusing the road parts sales section and came across a topic that scared me a little...

Would you buy a pair of second hand padded bib shorts, knowing full well that roadies go commando down there?

I dont think there is a vomiting smilie.

    Apart from those admitting on the thread that's going at the moment they wear boxers, I'd hope mountain bikers don't wear anything under their shorts either...

    But yes, second hand shorts is grim.

    In Japan there are vending machines with used pants, I can only imagine that most of the people that use the machine will wear them on their face?

    Used bib shorts, just so very wrong, let's face it you wouldn't wear another man's boxers I know I wouldn't, so I can't see why anyone would even consider wearing 2nd hand bibs that have had a lot more sweat in them.....I feel ill now!

    As for boxers under bibs simply daft, commando is the only way to go for comfort.

    are bib shorts the ones with dildos stitched in to the back to keep them up? if so, im not keen on a second hand pair.

    if i was selling some though, id make sure the padded bit was sopping wet like the little meat pad you get in supermarket pre-packaged meat.

    Hoping to catch a glimpse? Generally shorts that mtbers (excluding XC racesnakes) wear aren't the same type roadies wear - they're just bog standard shorts, so of corse you'd wear boxers underneath :?

    I always wear boxers. I personally can't see why you'd not.
  • sheepsteethsheepsteeth Posts: 17,418 Webster
    these are my fave underpants.

    closely followed by these which take a little while to mould to your form but once they do, i reckon you ddcould do away with the saddle and just ride the seat post!!

    To be honest I always have done but I think that after my tarmac jaunts I'm going to dig out the clip in padded liner shorts and use those

    No they're not. Padded shorts of any ilk are designed to be worn against the skin. If you're a massive retard, or a big fan of crotch rot you carry on though!
  • Pesky JonesPesky Jones Posts: 2,986
    Ok...I wear normal shorts though. I guess I havn't hit the point where my body starts failing and I need padded shorts, crack on though. And I dont get crotch rot or whatever you call it, you might want to get that seen to.
    :D:lol::)cooldad :shock: :? :cry:
  • njee20njee20 Posts: 9,613
    Nah, because I don't wear underwear. Keep up.

    You'll find most folk doing reasonable amounts of riding will wear padded shorts, but they're not necessary for standing in car parks, high fiving other riders and saying "sweet roost brah", so you're probably ok!
  • Pesky JonesPesky Jones Posts: 2,986
    Funny. Those charectirists are normally displayed by middle aged, padded shorts, camel back, £100 goggle wearing riders. But nice try :wink:

    I used to wear boxer shorts under my baggies but after trying a padded liner short I would never go back.
