    knickers, short for knickerbockers...my pops was an old school tailor from Europe so i started wearing them when i was 4, went back to them about 5 years ago for riding and love em. knee and partial shin coverage is good for colder weather riding, and long enough that they won't snag on your controls when climbing.

    If you are man enough to ride in snow like that you can wear whatever you want.

    Actually for that snow riding, those look perfect. You want to keep your pants out of the chain and deep snow. You need a few layers to protect from the cold (knees especially). And, they look like a winter equivalent of baggies.

    I can almost forgive them on bike riders who are actually riding a bike. Almost. I can also almost forgive Europeans for wearing them, at least the ones who live in tropical/hot climes. Almost. I can't really think of another almost acceptable case.

    Yeah, really. Now I'm going to be so self-conscious.

    I wear the knicks 'cuz I like the extra coverage in colder weather riding. Plus, I have a 37" inseam with stork legs. Anything I can do to save people from the horror of seeing my beached-whale-belly-white legs in the winter is worth it. Don't give 2chits what people think of my wardrobe. Gotta cover the pegs.

    I don't know your gender, or how it looks on you so please don't. But to the females around here, feel free.
    I don't wear, and never had a need or urge to wear Capri pants, but also couldn't care less who does. If you like 'em wear 'em. If someone's gonna judge you for it, they're not worth the time anyways

    A lot of judgemental a$$holes around here.
    I wear Endura 3/4 shorts, aka riding knickers. They provide a lot of extra protection, warmth and versatility. I have worn them for commuting, general riding and even racing.
    The rednecks at work give me $hit for wearing capris, but fawk'em, they give me $hit just for riding a bike.

    Having a sense of humor about men in capri pants is probably one of the greater indications of whether a person actually has a sense of humor.

    I wear capri lycra pants for running and biking. Do not care what somebody may think. It is a sporting clothing.

    I also wear 3/4 Endura shorts ( Humvee ) for a couple years but i never got "called out" for wearing them, they're comfortable, carry a lot of crap, i can wear huge knee pads ( iXS ) and you wouldn't know about. But the again, i either ride with guys wearing tight spandex shorts or guys rocking full DH gear aka huge, floppy and full of colours that would embarrass even a circus clown so i guess i'm the most sensible wearing dude in the pack when wearing them

    You, then, are one of the capri pants exceptions. You really bring out the manly in them. Only you have the power. You shouldn't leave the house without them.

    Those look too baggy to be knickers. You're wearing capris buddy...



    I have knickers. I wear them under pants or shorts so no one will ever know. It's difficult to hide the shame of wearing pretty much capris though

    I like those knickers, but I really don't think they are knickers. I think they are regular pants made for the average 6 footer. What are you, 9 feet tall or something?

    Haha heyyall. That's an XXL 29er I'm standing over and the guy to my right is 6'5".

    Since the descriptor knickers is in dispute, let's call them pedal pushers. 'Course, with Tone's, pedals may not be all that's pushin'. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Knickers are fine in my book. Shorts always seem to snag on kneepads, knickers hang a little lower so they dont ride up and over the top of the pad as easily when you're pedalling.

    As a really tall guy (6'9"), DIY knickers are easy to make - get some cheap pants for a short man (or in my case a short fat man) and cut a few inches off the bottom. Instant knickers. Hem them if you're feeling pro about it or leave it ragged since it'll get torn up anyways on the bike.

    Since we're having some issues with distinctions, perhaps some pics are in order? First one, maybe ok. I get the functionaliy, but wouldn't think I was the least bit cool. The last one? Wear at own risk.

    LOL Tone's. It's pretty much all about camera angles. I'm *only* a hair under 6' 8" with disproportionately long legs. And as you may know, white men can't jump but yeah, played some.

    this thread isn't necro yet. its more comatose.

    the important thing is I don't care what they're called. I want some damn leg sleeves that DON'T get eaten by my chain but also cover enough of my leg that a good pair of socks can make up the difference. actual shorts are too short.

    All I know is my blue jeans get shredded and smell like crotch soup after my 12 mile commute.

    I NEED MANPRIS FOR THE FUNCTION.

    I wear these (enter slanderous name here) pants in the spring and fall and love them. I am getting a kick out of reading replies from all the haters, who oddly enough, probably don tights when the temp dips below 60 degrees.

    I really don't care what the social stigmas are here. I will wear them.

    even if they're hot pink and covered in unicorns...

    ESPECIALLY if they're hot pink and covered in unicorns.

    I picked a set up about ten or so years ago and found them great for commuting, MTB, and they offer a little extra protection rock climbing. I now have about 8 pair of em. A few just for outdoors use and a few that can be worn casually at work (REI). I have never owned MTB specific shorts cause man-pris are more functional.... ....and I make them look good BOOM!

    Love 'em. Loooooove my manpris. Perfect when in in-between temps, and I love them when commuting by bike.


    If skirts/kilts came into fashion for guys, I'd rock those as well. Soooo comfy to just let it all hang out.

    wow...

    A lot of guys here seem so insecure about their sexuality that they will eschew perfectly functional cycling clothing for fear of what others will think.

    Makes me wonder how many of them wear their pants in "prison b*tch" mode...

    bradkay, I think you likely got negged because the whole vibe of this thread is kind of jokey. Nobody was trying to be nasty towards capri-pants males, just poke some fun. If you are new to the OC forum, pretty much all the threads are not to be taken seriously. Outright aggression doesn't get rewarded around here.

    says the internet tough guy who can't take neg rep....

    how to get along around here in 2 easy steps:

    1. remove the stick from the posterial orifice of your nether region.
    2. repeat step one as needed.

    So one person's sense of humor is another person's "aggression". I got it...

    I'm no tough guy, just someone who comments on life as I see it.

    It's forum specific and unfortunately what would get a pass in General may be deemed a bit aggro in the OC, but how were you to know that? Stick around, get the lay of the land, you'll probably fit in fine here.

    Well, I thought to myself either this guy is being totally aggressive for no real reason, or his jokes really suck. As I prefer optimism, I went with aggro.

    Sexy:


    Not Sexy:


    Moral of the story, keep that hideous pale flesh above the knee covered up, unless you are a woman with a "young and healthy" skin complexion and want to show off your sexy legs.

    Pics borrowed from google, which they borrowed from someone else. (I must admit the guy I borrowed the 2nd pic from has a f'ing cool flickr gallery)
