why not get some cycling undercrackers to wear under your jeans, if you're not keen on lycra tights and shorts?

A pair of cheap walking style troos (with padded shorts under) could be good for you. Light, quick drying fabric and some have articulated knees ie. the fabric is sewn so it's already part bent at the knee - I find these good for when I want to wear a pair of strides on the bike. Millets and Decathlon are good for these (1 pair for about 12quid from Decathlon at the w/e).

Sorry to contradict you Alec, but I would avoid that particular pair of smegs. I bought those and had to return them when the chamy bunched up, over the counter inspection an all, very embarrasing:blush:.

I have since bought some of oakley's padded undergarments which seem much better and up to the tough job intended they are thouroghly recomended :blush::biggrin:

Craghopper / Rohan (or similar) walking/leisure longs that convert to shorts. Wear padded boxers for riding comfort. Good compromise - comfort, shorts, longs, quick drying, light weight, dont scream cyclist when off bike.

There are plenty to choose from.

Gore Vantage trousers look pretty cool but cost £50.

Edinburgh Cycle Co-op sell a range of trousers some of which are cheaper http://http://www.edinburghbicycle.com/ebwPNLqrymode.a4p?f_ProductID=0&f_WebLinkID=3665&f_SortOrderID=1&f_bct=c003156c003157c003663c003665

The Altura Altitude trousers are worn by cycle police and look a bit industrial - but you could chase robbers all day in them without getting any wear or tear.
Working link for Edinburgh Cycle Co-op trouser range, worth a look...
