|Just wondering why such a weird poll. Who here (and how can you) wear anything under bike shorts?|
|silk boxers :-)||kenyee|

|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 wear underwear, cant be helped, i've got issues...||curtybirdychopper|

|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!|
|G-Strings work great! nm||preacher|

|yet you do. although sometimes it hurts when removing them and you pull out some of your manly butt hair.

|What about a garter belt?||Chainstay|

|I did as a newb||longfellow68|

|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.|
|Plenty of people do||Eager Beagle|

|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.

|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 underwear||ColnagoFE|

|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?|| |
