    Is it okay to clothes-line shorts of spandex?

    There was a single pair of spandex shorts in my dryer on Sunday. It was out of control on timed-dry. I wanted to do something but I didn't have time. I guess spandex has the right-of-way into my dryer.

    I'm all for hanging up my riding shorts, but I'm an idiot.

    True story.

    Spandex has the right of way, only if the dryer rotates in a counter-clockwise motion and the cyling uniform is brightly colored. If not, you MUST hang your cycling panties on a clothesline to dry.

    It's the bada, AND the bing.

    Where baggies over spandex, strap your DH bike on your back as you XC up, then switch bikes and DH down with the XC on your back.

    Now you're all set.

    And Joelalamo, where do you keep getting those pictures? Its unnerving you have so many, what else are you hiding?

    You should probably wear baggies over your spandex so others don't have to see your package, regardless if you are riding up or bombing down.

    Guys, I'm being serious here. I can only hope that the shorts of spandex read this and it somehow gets through to them... and I also hope that everyone will agree with my desire to close-line my shorts of spandex and will comfort me and my tragic experience. I'm such a victim. I would have done something, but I didn't have time. But I did have time to post this thread.

    This is my new trail sled. Up and down. Left and right. It goes everywhere my XC bike used to go. I owe it all to the QR seatpost collar.

    Is that method color-safe? I have a lot of logos on my spandex uniform and I don't want them to fade.

    Next thing you know is a pair of gloves will sneak into your dryer and use it's velco to cling to your other clothes, scarring them for life.

    Gloves the evil do'ers of the dryer.

    Come on Nickle, If people keep drying their spandex in the dryer, we might lose access to our chamois!

    For the record, I don't DH or XC... I am a slopestlye/dirt jumper guy. I only go downhill fast if it's to clear a big set of Crankworx style doubles. Other than that I am a bike park rat.

    But IF I rode down Maxwell, I would ride this bike and wear this helmet and jersey... With baggy shorts of course.

    I thought all self respecting DJ/slopestyle dudes wore jeans and a T?

    Question is do you wear straight leg jeans or flared with faded front?

    Does anyone know what the deal is with Biker Fox. Is this a joke, or is he for real. I noticed he's from Oklahomo so that could explain some of it I guess.

    Kind of like wearing gaper green and pink on the slopes?

    Hmm, perhaps Transition bikes need to be a little more expensive, or a little heavier... I wonder if they're made out of that 7005 alum w/o heat treat post-welding? Anyhow, I think the Balance will hold up... 11 lbs of steel should do it.

    Did you break the I-9s yet?

    I managed to kill my Hope Bulb rear hub and destroyed my front rim the last day of Keystone... got some Azonic Outlaws, they're pretty sweet. They don't make any freewheel noise and the bearings roll really fast, noticable on the trail. Not too bad for $230.

    No, actually. Both sets are holding up great. I've broken one spoke and threw the rear a little out of true at keystone, but that's it. The I9's are my trail wheels. They get swapped for the heavy Revolution wheels when the trails get really rough.

    That Balance is the 7005 version. It's about 2 lbs lighter than the 4130 version. Still, it's more burly than the Preston, which I was quite happy with. Honestly, if the 2007 Prestons had a larger cockpit, shorter CS, and the 2006 HA, I would have bought one of those instead. Transitions are good bikes.
    A trail thatís too difficult wouldnít exist because itíd never be used. But, trails can exist thatíre too difficult for you.

    Which word? Shuttle or Apex? We could throw in "fullface" just to seal the deal. Oh crap, lookie what I did. Locked for sure.

    38.7 grams to be exact. I removed the stitching around the crotchal area to free up another 0.3 grams. Those babies are down to 38.4 grams now. Can I get a "wooh... wooh" in the hiz-ouse?!

    I've been too busy to post much today, but I'm laughing out loud and those around me give me strange looks as I sit in my lonely cubical....

    Anyone what to start a Gaper Apex day? We'll encourage shuttling AND riding up. The point is we'll all yield.....in Lycra and neon!

    It would actually be a good way to show others that bikers come in both good and bad on both XC and DH bikes. But only those of true grit wear neon Lycra *

    *Or maybe stone washed jeans that are too tight

    Ok, I have wanted to ask this for sometime, but I was waiting for the thread to do so. Here goes: Why do mtbers wear spandex and shave their legs? Is the spandex so that you do not catch your pant legs on the seat, clamp, ect...? That kinda makes sense. But, there is never a need, unless you are getting paid to do so, to wear the colorful type with the multiple logos on it. Shaving the legs? Whats the deal? What performance does it offer? Swimmers swim faster without hair and women can meet a mate quicker without hair, but, riding a fricken bike? C'mon! I do not mean to offend anyone, but, I would like to know the reasoning.

    As for shaving, I think it's mostly road riders who want to make cleanup of road rash easier.

    People wear loud spandex (rather than subtle designs) as the bright design blinds any other clothing items in the drier. This allows the spandex to sneak up on other clothing items and eat them. Didn't you ever wonder what happened to those missing socks?

    Sounds like fun. I wonder if bikerfox shaves his ha-has? By ha-has, I mean legs, of course...

    One theory:
    Leg Shaving = Racerboy XC
    Racerboy XC = Fear of technical riding
    Fear of technical riding = Lack of appropriately sized testicles
    Lack of testicles = Lack of testosterone
    Lack of testosterone = Desire to shave legs...
    It's a vicious circle..
