- road = lycra, off road = baggies?
Lycra on the road bike, baggies, but slim fitting, for commuting and off-road. Lycra works so much better than baggies, but I ain’t walking into a pub or my office in full on lycra.
Oh and I’m sure this will run and run. But it is about what you feel comfortable in and if it works for you then who cares – there is no right or wrong.Posted 9 years agoCountMember
All my Endura baggies have inner shorts that are lycra anyway. The baggies outers are useful off road as an extra layer and of course pockets. I can see why just lycra is good, I run a lot and always run in lycra shorts as it feels way better than regular running shorts to me.Posted 9 years agofu_manchuMember

Mountain Bike FS – Lycra and baggies
Not a fan of the padded liner thing so always ride with “proper” Lycra bib or shorts and doing a bit of a fashion queen do tend to try to do the hip looking thing on the full susPosted 9 years agotwinklydaveSubscriber
as long as you’re wearing something, that’s the main thing…

lycra off road if i’m going a long way cos baggies seem to ‘get in the way’ and are more likely to rub me up all wrong
baggies if i’m trying to be gnarly or expect to crash…for a bit of tear resistancethisisnotaspoonMember
why am i even replying to this?
off road: lycra with baggies to offer up some crash resistance, no one likes riding home in lycra with yer nuts hanging out after a crash.
spinning class: baggies with liner (its only 45 min, and no one wants to wear lycra in public)Posted 9 years agoCaptainMainwaringMember
Only do offroad – always baggies since getting lycra crutch caught on point of saddle when trying to get weight back for a steep descent. Couldn’t get far enough back with my lycra caught on the saddle, had to move forward to release it. Result – spectacular triple salco with pike OTB. Doesn’t seem to happen with baggiesPosted 9 years ago
