    down to personal preference BFTB, I go for the shorts under the tights look myself as my bibtights don't have a chamois insert.

    If they have a pad in, then only the tights, if not then shorts under the tighs (or else you'll look like a wannabe superhero).

    sorry it just sounded a bit like the question on the old cycling plus which went something along the lines of "I've bought some new pants but I'm confused, i don't know what to wear with them!"

    I'm just trying to minimise the risk of looking even more of a pratt on a bike than I already do. I am not up on 'cycle fashion' (if there is such I thing). Given the high ratio of Chavs to humans around here I felt it wise to take advice before suffering further ridicule on the roads of Essex than I already get.

    ...now...I need to know what colour shorts to wear, and does the G string go over them or under them?:blush:

    G-string on top. ALWAYS.

    If you've bought bibtights and they're padded, get em on commando and on yer bike.

    If your g string is one with a saucy remark or picture on it then you should wear it back to front so it can be seen when you're bent over the handlebars.

    They are meant to be skin tight not loose and baggy.

    ..yep..I know, and they were ...but they also pulled my balls up to my shoulders:ohmy::biggrin:....

    The problem was the distance between the shoulder and the crotch was to small....wiggle sizing said 6'42 which i am, however it's the crotch to shoulder top measurement which is crucial with these.

    ^ yeah, I'm kind of long in the body and have that problem with bibs a lot. Then with some brands I get them long enough and the shorts part (if they're shorts not longs) comes down over my knees.
