Bib knickers. Can you pee.....(12 posts)

without taking it all off? Or can you pull the front down far enough to get your thing out? It's getting cold out and it's time for winter wear....

I wear knickers all the time in NW during winter. I would think most knickers with straps you are talking about at least moving one strap off the shoulder and then you can take care of things. There are strapless knickers, just called knickers versus bib knickers (straps)

Well sure you can, but the chamois gets real wet and uncomfortable unless you remove a strap. I like to wear a full zip jersey for this eventuality, it makes things much easier, especially when it is real cold and the damn thing turns turtle. Some days remind me of that Seinfeld episode when they discussed "shrinkage"

Very good, you can even post although you are dead! BTW what kind of saddle do you ride, I'd bet that it must be custom!

You'll figure it out. I have a couple ways. I can slouch and pull the front down but it can stretch your shoulder straps out. Or pull a strap out thru your jersy sleeve and over your arm.

The pros .... ahem .... take care of business while on the bike. I've pondered the mechanics of that many times and been tempted to try it but fear I'll just wet my shoes.

I gather from photographs that most of them wear bibs now. How do they do the on-bike trick wearing bibs?
I've thought about a sheath and a relief tube....Birddog
