- Trousertrackworld – commute-proof but smart work trousers
My bike commute is only a couple of miles each way so I ride in my work gear. One downside to this is that I wear out office trousers fairly regularly (they all wear through at the seat where they’ve rubbed on the saddle). I’ve changed saddle to mitigate this as much as possible and tried various different materials but they all go the same way eventually.
Any other commuters have recommendations for something a bit more durable or should I just resolve myself to regular visits to M&S?Posted 4 years agobellefiedMemberMrGreedySubscriber
Far more sensible replies there than I expected – thanks. Sadly my 32 inch waist days are behind me so I’ll have to pass on your offer Markie, but I’ll check the other suggestions out.
As for changing at work, I really CBA with the faff (carrying stuff in or finding somewhere to store it) for such a short commute. Getting sweaty has never been a problem, on the rare occasions in the height of summer when I might get a bit warm I’ll just ride slower.Posted 4 years agoMilitant_bikerMember
I’ve got some of those Outlier trousers. Very good they are too. I did use to use them for the full 6 miles to the station, and then for a mile at the other end, as there were no changing facilities. These days I only really ride in them when I’m going between sites – so 5 minute rides.
But they come in right handy after a post work pint, and I can’t be bothered to change in the pub for the ride home.Posted 4 years ago
