- Braces on a bike? With my reputation?
Possibly a bit of an odd query this one, but has anyone tried wearing braces to hold their shorts up while riding?
As a few of you out thee will know, my physique isn’t exactly racing-snake like and I often experience problems with shorts (most specifically wet weather ones) slipping down a little bit. As most of them have popper fasteners & Velcro adjustment, which never seem to work well, and are usually without belt loops I’m thinking of possibly trying braces to hold them up.
They never slip right down so I don’t scare any of the wildlife, but just enough to start catching on the saddle and whenever I stop I spend most of my time trying to pull them back up again.Posted 3 years agothisisnotaspoonSubscriber
Yup, some cheap ones from next IIRC, got them in the January sale last year for £2.50 or something silly.
Only problem was getting the right tension, too much and the shorts ride up, too little and they’d shuffle forward because the braces obviously hold trousers level, but biking shorts are much higher at the back.Posted 3 years agolungeSubscriber
If only someone would invent shorts with built in braces.
Baggies? Who makes them?
Just wear the right tool for the job and buy some proper bib shorts. You’re a grown man riding a push bike, you look like a fool anyway so you might as well be a fool in the best clothes for the job.Posted 3 years ago
