After years of resisting Lycra, I’ve given in and bought my first pair of bike shorts. I know I can get pairs that look like real shorts, but I figured that given the reason that I wanted to change was because of fabric rubbing, I should go with something which isn’t likely to move around on me when I ride.
I’ve now done the morning commute, and they were certainly more comfortable than normal shorts… Although the padding does take a little bit of getting used to. No rubbing though, which was nice.
The big question though — do I look sexy in these? Oh, and how come bike clothing is all so expensive?
