|Plan on riding a bit more after the summer (live in New England). What tights do you guys recommend? Chamois/No chamois? Plan on riding in weather 45+.|

|I have tights warm enough down to 35F with a chamois and real warm ones without. Both work fine as do arm and leg warmers. I'd recommend getting a pair of leg warmers first. If you use those a lot and want to go colder, get a pair without a chamois next because you can use them over shorts you already own without washing them after every ride. Don't forget your hands and feet either.|

|I'm a big fan of the Performance Innova Polypropylene without a chamois. They're warmer than regular lycra/nylon tights but rarely too warm and wick really well. By skipping the chamois, they make toasty long underwear for cold days in the field or at late-season football games.
Just my 2 cents.
|45+? just get some leg warmers then (nm)||ColnagoFE|

|or knee warmers even. i find the "double layer" of shorts + tights to be annoying.
another option--knickers( i like to say both "k"s for fun!) are my personal faves above 40F.

|Performance makes some nice lycra/cotton ones that you can pull on over regular riding shorts. The lycra/nylon ones seem to slip agains the shorts, these are much better, and fairly cheap (I think I got them last time for $20 on sale).
I ride in these when it's between 35 and 50 degrees.

|I wear them in much colder weather, but this is a great company.
they will make your tights to order (tailored to your measurements and you choose the material)
Friendly owners small mom and pop shop.

|Tights are good but can be a pain to take on and off. Zippers make it easier. I prefer ones w/out chamois and wear shorts under them so I can take them off. Leg warmers are a good option - you can slide them up and down.|| |
