I used to wear jocks under my padded lycra bike shorts so that the shorts didn't need washing after every ride. Then the bike shop told me that lycra shorts were designed to be worn next to the body so now I don't wear jocks and the shorts get washed after every ride.
However, one of my co-riders recently told his new style jocks weren't as comfortable under his bike shorts as his previous style. He was aghast when I told him I don't wear any jocks when riding.
What do others do?
I'm not part of the lycra set (yet) but please, for the love of all things occular, PLEASE wear knicks that aren't worn down to see-through on the butt. I see far to much riders-crack on my drive to work. (We want drivers to be nice to us remember!)
That said, I've never expected to wear knickers under knicks... And I'm not sure my ~5km commute would warrant knicks for the ride.
Hey you guys got me paranoid, i was in the changerooms trying to look in the mirror to see if my Skins Lycra Knicks were see thru before i went on my lunchtime ride, it was a sight to see (NOT) glad no one walked in!Pheew1
Oh yeah commando is the go!
Commando all the way
