    I go to thrift stores, find the ones in my size, then have my mommy hem them.

    Yep - Old Navy had em last time I was there, but not my size. I've been wearing a couple of pairs picked up on clearance at Sears (Point Zero brand, I think) . Either of these options should be no more than $40-50, certainly I paid on the low end of that...

    I've been commuting for 2 years in the one pair, which are just about done. Not bad mileage for 1/2 the price of actual cycling-intended knickers.

    I have a hard time even thinking about knickers, let alone actually wearing them.
    You have no excuse for driving to work
    (unless you don't have studded tires)
    (no excuse for that either)

    Knickers? Isn't that the sound contented horses make? Sorry.

    I'd have to buy a case of chamois butter if I went the knicker route. Now getting my significant out of hers... never mind. Gotta go now, something came up.

    Bonktown.com is blowing out some biking knickers right now (8:10am pacific) for $60. It's one of those 20 minutes or until we run out sites - maybe if you get an email notification of this post and can get there in time there will be some left.

    I have some Prana baggy style knickers I love...stretchy kinda nylony outside & bike short inside. Small side velcro pockets. Large comfort range temp wise since they block the wind. Stretch pull cord at knee to snug up or loosen for more air. Today I added leg warmers to cover the gap in the cold a.m. air. They are either really cool or really dorky, not sure which. I have one streetwear pair of crop pants, but while they make everyone else look stylish, somehow I look like I was washed up on a desert island.

    Live someplace where the temps average 40-60 year round. Knickers are great!
