    No, knickers is what you put UNDER your pants.

    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.

    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    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
