    cycling knicker info

    I am interested in getting or making my own knickers for cycling. I am not talking about the ones with bibs or the lycra ones more the lightweight breathable material fabric ones I have seen the professional ones from swobo or others online. Right now not willing to pay $150 or more for a pair. So has anyone made their own and what material did you use. Or is their a company who makes a lower cost pair say around $50. I would be wanting a material that breathes and they would be for summer use.

    Also if you bought a pair how much did you pay and what brand?

    I've found the Endura Humvee shorts to be a nice pair that my LBS recommended. $85.
    Here is the website....

    Goto the thirft store and get some comfy polyester pants from the 70's for $2.00, then:

    ...there's also someone on the web who sells converted BDUs (military fatigues) for not too much if you don't want to do the sewing yourself, seek and ye shall find.

    I've got tons of do it yourself sewing tips for cycle gear on my website. It's kind of disorganized, so just follow the links...

    I have a pair of these and they work well. Also, because of how they are constructed you aren't sitting on a seam, which is nice if you have a pretty solid saddle.
