    Breathes well, doesn't inhibit movement, drys quickly, doesn't get caught on the back of your seat, etc.
    Professional atheletes wear it for a reason. Personally, I would probably get beaten up wearing it around here, so I stick with casual stuff.

    I also use it underneath my casual stuff, mainly because of the coushin for the seat (donīt know the exact name for it).

    best chamois are found on high quality road bibs, regulates temperature well, doesn't get caught on the seat/bike, doesn't inhibit breathing, dries out fast, doesn't get caught on branches, etc

    It is an appropriate and functional attire for the sport. Wearing anything else - unless it is for some functional purposes, such as wearing armor underneath - is a sign that you worry about your appearance more than about your performance. That is not a masculine trait.

    I don't wear it because nobody should have to see that. I do buy baggies and hiking/climbing shorts because I'm cheap and want something I can wear both riding and every day.

    I wear spandex because I like it when my Cock-n-Balls show through my bibs. Gay? Kissing dudes and obsessing about what clothes other dudes wear, that's gay.

    Another question: What is it with the Limp Bizkit outfits downhillers wear? Since when is it cool to dress like a 14 year old from 1995?

    i feel the same way, it seems that all action sports require you to wear a big flat brimmed hat. i like my hat with a curve and fitting.

    i think the always having a hat on especially during pics and interviews has to do with the sponsors. i was watching the end of the brickyard 400 nascar (nascar is boring) before the x games and during the "kissing the bricks" they changes hats like 10x with different brand names on them and i believe the commentator said something about pics for the sponsors

    i wear chamois under my TLD ace (xc specific) baggy shorts
