What do you guys usually wear when you guys are on your fg/ss?

For me, for casual commutes on weekdays, i just wear a cutoff jean, tshirt and a helmet. On the weekends, (30~50 mile rides), I wear cycling shorts, jersey, helmet, and sunglasses.

How about you?

Pretty much same here, except I wear cargo shorts and boxers. When I go on longer rides in cycling shorts, I also wear gloves.

lol honestly, whatever i am wearing to work on commutes...

for longer rides, either soccer shorts, my dads super short 70's running shorts, or these butt padded chamois mountain bike shorts.

oh and these:


lol not me grabbin some crotch. they are by Hell Yes clothing. they take some used salvation army pants/slacks of varying makes and material, cut them below the knee, articulate the knee, add some buttons and a strap at the bottom to cinch them tighter, and use the extra material that was cut off to make a cell phone pocket. i like mine allot, nice for city riding.

If Im going for a long bike ride I wear a jersey and bike shorts. If Im just tooling around I wear a tshirt and cargo shorts over my bike shorts.

Im too much of a little baby to ride without my chamois.

Is it just me, or does anyone else's boxers get all bunched up around their crotch after 10 min of riding? I hate that, and it feels super tight and digs into my crotch.

I need briefs...

I hope you are talking about when you are wearing normal pants, yes. For cycling shorts, I am pretty sure you have to wear it without underwears. >.> or atleast thats what i do.

I just ordered a jersey and some bib shorts for my longer rides. Pretty stoked to get some padding down there. Luls.

For putting around or going to class I wear shorts/cutoffs, Chucks/Vans, and a t-shirt. I might be throwing a helmet in the mix some time.

Make the move. Invest in some nice briefs and you'll be extra comfy as well as feeling extra sexy : D

I just wear street clothes 90% of the time. If it's prohibitively warm, I'll wear shorts and t-shirt and change when I get to work.

Whatever I'm wearing. Usually rolled up jeans and work t shirt (I bike to work). For longer rides I wear whatever I'm wearing. Sometimes a messenger bag and sometimes I take nothing. Helmet sometimes. My worn Converse One Stars (cheep!). And my lazor beem eyeballs of course, to shoot car tires out.
