im new to riding in cold weather and have my torso, legs, arms, feet, hands, ears and head pretty well covered and reasonably warm. but im afraid my "best friend" will turn into an icicle. am numbingly cold down there. have a set of bib-shorts and a pair of tights which keep all but my love region cold.

i am genuine about my predickament!

ciao, ben

... or, in a pinch... a bit of plastic... say from a baggie... saran wrap or small grocery/shopping bag can make an effective, albeit noisey windbreak for the boyz.

I've never really had that problem (padded shorts under unpadded tights) even during extreme low temps... my fingers and toes go first (besides, the boyz have a self retracting mechanism)...

We abide.

The most humorous album cover yet, and it shows the correct sock placement.

They're like very soft and warm brief-style underwear, they're blue, and they have a "codpiece" made of windbreaker-type material which keeps one's yarbles toasty (as toasty as they can be, anyway, when it's windy and chilly outside). The main short material is their LIFA material, which wicks moisture pretty nicely.

Check Performance, Nashbar, and maybe even less cycling-specific sites like REI, Campmor, Eastern Mountain Sports, etc. They were reasonably priced and have lasted years without wear.

Keep 'em warm!
