    Baggy shorts with padded compression liners. Best of both worlds.

    Lycra, because I'm worth it. Though I'm planning on getting some baggy shorts to try them.

    Depends on the ride.
    High Sierra trail ride, baggies with padded insert.
    Local rides, lycra bibs under baggies.
    Racing, lycra bibs.
    Single speeding, always baggy something. It just seems right.

    Baggies over lycra. Lycra only, when it's oppressively hot - then function overrules fashion.

    Being a former roadie, I obviously have no shame and therefore wear roadie-type Lycra shorts. Where I ride, there isn't anyone to stare at my junk, anyway.

    I always feel sexier when I'm in Lyrca, so I guess it depends on if I'm leading the group ride or not.

    Been discussed extensively on here. Typically, standard spandex tight shorts. I have baggies w/liner, like those too. Just depends on the mood.

    I'm with you on this. Hack off the legs in the summer and buy a new pair in the fall. I tried the zip-off cargo shorts but the hem on the shorts was always right on my knee. No need to know what I wear under them.

    When it's really cold in the winter, I'll wear pantyhose under the jeans.

    I'm not sure why you're not running flat pedals with your boots. Works for me. I've never been able to afford Tony Lamas.

    I had to custom order my aligatsnake skin boots with Vibram rubber and a plugged recess for the option of running CB pedals for long hauls.carbon reinforced insert layer in sole. I love them like they were my children.

    As someone currently living in Arkansas, I can confirm that denim overalls are the 100% best choice for riding shorts. And commando underneath, duh.

    That's funny. I lived in a town called Whiskey Creek, B.C. for 17 years and that was the town uniform.

    I guess I can see some advantages of Depends, like eliminating the need to get off the bike to pee, but how do you prevent diaper rash? Also, do you need to raise the seat as they bulk up?

    Ok, seriously. Roadie Lycra as long as I'm within visual range of my bike and am riding without any planned stops anyplace occupied by the general public...otherwise I put baggies on over the tights.

    I like to wear my bibs on my head and my jersey on my lower; the chamois adds an extra layer of protection against impact and the jersey lets me "drop trou" without exposing myself to nature.

    Baggies because tight shorts get caught on the saddle, which sucks not to mention potentially dangerous.

    Tight shorts for the road though.
