    Long time lurker, first time poster...

    Hello MTBRers!

    My name is Vince and I just started seriously participating in the mountain bike sport. I'm still getting in shape and building up my legs but so far I'm loving the activity.

    I do have a solicitation for ideas and opinions:

    When I ride I like to wear Champion C9 workout pants (or equivalent) because they offer great flexibility and comfort. The only problem is the pant bottoms keep getting snagged by the crankset.

    I was wondering if you guys have had similar issues and have come up with a decent remedy for it? I was thinking of using a shin guard/pad (not plastic armor) or hiking gaiters to keep the pant legs tight around my calves eliminating the bagginess. I know I could also take straps and tie the legs down but I'm really wondering if there is a specific solution that I haven't found. Have you guys heard of anything SPECIFIC that is designed for this application?

    I do not like mountain bike pants as I think they are too tight and restricting. I love the feel of the loose workout pants but the baggy ankles need to go. Your ideas, opinions and solutions are welcome.

    Thanks.

    PS - I know about the "tuck pants in socks" trick but I want something a tad more efficient and classy.

    Have to agree with Jay, oh boy

    Well a cereal answer is simple, embrace the spandex, if your riding anything techy its nice to know where your junk is

    On the other hand you must have the softest seat made.

    White lycra? Man, I thought those were tighty-whities. I'm thinking, this dude is riding in his Fruit Of The Looms.

    Biker Fox is my hero.

    The missionaries swear by the Expression LDS. Ride in black slacks worry free.
