that I have never really had a problem like the one you mention. I think the majority of guys let the junk point in whichever direction is the natural one and ride. Meaning toward the right hip or left hip. If you are indeed well endowed, be proud and sport it.

Two peanut shells, some glue, and a rubberband will serve you well.

Just swing things over your shoulder. Careful, though, I have gotten stuck in the rear derailleur....

Seriously, if your package is so big that spandex -- which stretches so much you can fit a freaking bowling ball in a pair of shorts -- will not cover it, I doubt you are able to ride a bike at all. Your nuts would be banging on the top tube.

whatever your decision, take public interest in mind... heh

Perhaps an ice rub down might tame things down a bit. j/k

A honest answerIan

I will assume that you are serious, and attempt to give you an honest answer. I am guessing what you mean is not that you are so large that your shorts can't hold it, but you just do not like only a thin layer of spandex covering your stuff. Funny enough, I have a riding buddy who complained about the same thing. He then found that the chamois in Specialized shorts comes up further in the front than others and covers his stuff. Now he has a chamois and the spandex covering him, and it makes him more comfortable.

Are you showing up for a co-ed group ride with a "loaded gun"?

Fold it over?...Geez, maybe you need a license for that Johnson...
