Poll - How can you wear underwear under your shorts???PODIUMBOUNDdotCA

Just wondering why such a weird poll. Who here (and how can you) wear anything under bike shorts?

No rubbing...unlike cotton briefs
Yeah, I know ... it does seem weird.Allez Rouge

And yet, I know people who do it. Not sure why. Seems to me like it largely defeats the purpose of wearing cycling shorts.
I agree. (nm)jtferraro

It's must be a test to determine how many newbie (or clueless) cyclists visit this site? I was tempted to answer yes just for the hell of it.

I dont care what kind of dork I appear to be, with some of my bike shorts, just the way they fit, i have no choice but to put on the underoos. if i dont, the chaffing....well, i cant even type about how bad the chaffing can be in certain sensitive areas. I can adjust myself all ride long, but it just doesn't work out right sometimes without the Fredwear on.

You can buy them at Target, cheap! Keeps your chamois cleaner, that's for damn sure!

Then, it chaffed so bad one day, I was cut up in the groin area, and caught jock itch somehow. I learned my lesson the hard way.

I amazes me that this gets a reaction.

It's not a newbie thing either - I have been doing it without problems for 30 years.

What does the rest of the world do in cold weather - put more layers of shorts over the top - what's the point?

It's really not hard to find stuff that you can wear under your shorts without problems if you want to.

Some may do it because....joekm

They've found a combination that further reduces the possibility of chafing. Some feel that they get more life
out of the chamoise. Others simply need the extra elastic to hold the foil-wrapped cucumber in place.

....but I may be over sharing again ;)
I think they make cycling-specific underwearColnagoFE

I've got several shorts for warm weather rides, but only one long-legged fleece-lined bib tight for cold weather riding. I'll wear bikini briefs with these tights so as to stretch out the wearing time between washing them. I hand wash my cycling clothes, and it's simply a matter of convenience for me. What's the big deal, anyway?
