what does /n/ wear when riding?
I dont think i could ever bring myself to wear faggy stuff like this. But i dont race.
>>
>>1259648
I wear faggy stuff like that because I do race.
>>
>>1259648
depends on how much i'm going to sweat. jeans/tshirt/flannel if its coolish. rapha stuff that looks like regular clothes if its hot. i don't race, so i see no need to larp in traditional lycra.
>>
Usually just some non-restrictive shorts with a drawstring, and a t-shirt.
If it's colder, a merino or poly thermal layer
If it's colder, a thin windproof layer as well
then leggings & gloves
then a neck muff & more layered merino thermals

I mostly ride for 30-120 minutes and it's reasonably comfy for that.

Lycra is amazing though
>>
>>1259648
I wear faggy stuff like that for my 20-minute commute :^)
>>
>>1259648
i ride for transportatio/n/ so just my normal clothes for whatever the weather is doing.
if I rode for training or long pleasure rides I'd probably make some concessions towards more faggy stuff I suppose.

So you wear jeans and a shirt? Epic.
>>
>>1259648
OP, if you're not going to use cycling-specific clothing to ride, why do you even care what anyone else wears? Just wear whatever and don't waste a thread on this, or at least use the general thread instead. Nobody cares what you wear either.
>>
>>1259648
On a completely unrelated note, what's your BMI?
>>
For leisure riding, full faggot attire
For food delivery, bibs under jogging shorts and a non-skintight jersey
For casual short rides, anything.
>>
>>1259714
Last year I woke up in the ER and one of my minor diagnosis was insufficient body fat%, single digits of I remember correctly. Low enough to start having hormonal and health problems. I was like 125lbs at 5'6" biking like 25-50 miles a day, 4 days a week, shit sucked. Had to force myself to eat and gain 25lbs to be healthy but last year I felt fast as shit at 125lbs and can throw down 1.6kw peak and 250ish ftp. Now I'm 150 and feel so chunky and slow but at least I'm not starving all day, everyday.
>>
>>1259714
18.5, FTP is 370w, I could be on a pro team but I’d rather deliver sandwiches

A lot of pros aren't 'that' fast if you remove the world class gear and efficiencies from riding middle of the pack. I think a few long time deliver riders are some of the fastest on the street.
>>
>>1259738
Yeah I know, it really doesn’t take that much to go pro honestly. Cycling has got to be one of the easiest sports there is, you could throw together a team of NYC messengers and steamroll the TdF.
>>
>>1259648
Depends verry much on my ride:
>summer, roadbike
cycling shorts and jersey, sometimes no jersey.
>MTB
Cycling shorts and T-shirt, maybe shorts over the cycling shorts
>commute
Jeans and T-shirt/sweater
>winter riding
Multiple layers and motorcycle-gloves
>>
>>1259742
They should do that. I'd like to see that.

>>1259738

op here. not really sure but ive lost a fuck ton of weight over the past few years
>>
>>1259742
maybe the barrier regarding entry into the pro scene is less about physical condition and gear and more about networking and team dynamics. Just like other non-cycling sports. The money involved to get your foot into the door is so high, I doubt any couriers could afford it without real contracts and sponsorships really.
>>1259748
I'd watch just to see the outcome
>inb4 UCI bans couriers
>>1259749
I think TdF tier distances is the humble couriers' weakness due to poor diet and teamwork to properly conserve/attack at the right times. I see couriers doing quite well in the Velodrome instead of the Peloton.

>For leisure riding, full faggot attire

This is a perfect example of advice you should completely ignore.
>>
non bib chamois shorts
yellow and black short sleeve tall mens jersey

if cold:
add baselayer bottoms
baselayer top
cycing jacket (really just a running jacket)
glove liners under cycling gloves
skull cap under helmet
one of those neck foreskin things you pull up over your mouth when it gets cold.

I don't find the cycling outfit very restricting or revealing. Didn't any of you guys ever play football, rugby or wrestle?
>>
>>1259659
where does one draw the line for this

I used to ride about 10-15 minutes each way in normal clothes and the pants wore down on the butt in what felt like weeks.

These days I'm doing ~40 minutes each way and I'd rather not get there in sweaty slacks (or wear them out early), so I'm going to be changing. And if I'm going to be changing, what else but lycra?

How come?
>>
>>1259848
You don't wear ANYTHING under cycling shorts, it literally defeats the purpose and function of them.
A non-skintight jersey doesn't wick sweat away from your body therefore you just stew in stale sweat and never get any cooling.
You should not wear jeans and shit like that to ride, ever, unless you enjoy saddle sores on your crotch from friction and sweat accumulation.
Whoever that guy is, he has no fucking idea what he's doing.
>>
>>1259922
they didn't say they wore anything under the bibs. they said bibs go under running shorts.

i wear jeans for casual/commute, never had a saddle sore in years of riding. enjoy your autism costumes.
>>
You can wear literally anything for jackass slow durdles that 95% of this board typically does. It’s like asking what specialty clothing you wear to walk down the block. Fucking stupid.

I said bibs under shorts
A loose jersey wicks sweat just fine, it's not like I'm wearing a jersey two sizes too big, just a loose fit
And come the fuck on, do you put on your full kit to ride 2km to a party or something?
In any case I was just answering OP's question, not offering advice.
>>
>>1259941

Teamkit, especially since I live about an hours ride away from where we are based, so looks like I'm on a pretty decent ride even if I'm only doing hill repeats.

Lycra and a skin tight jersey but I cut a hole in the chamois and pull my dick out during Critical Mass Rides.

To make this /n/ related; there was a guy in Austin, TX for whom a thong was cycling clothing.

(Also, Clothes to Pose is quality stuff. Nice swimsuits that don't show mooseknuckle, and sling thongs in colors other than Borat lime.9

Basketball shorts, wife beater and whatever shoes I have on at the time. In winter I add jeans, a t-shirt and a hoodie.

Okay faggot, now that you've told us your FTP, tell us your BODYWEIGHT.

Also your FTP, just like your VO2max, doesn't really mean shit, it's your muscular endurance that really means anything. and oh by the way if you're a fatass (which I highly suspect) then IDGAF about your goddamned FTP, you'll still get dropped every single time on climbs, which means you would LOSE every single time, and even someone with a high FTP and long muscular endurance is still slow on the flat and will LOSE even a TT to someone lighter.
>t. delusional messenger types who think they can 'go pro' if they want
If you still want to try to refute the above then by all means go sign up on a one-day license for a Cat-5 road race with climbing next year in February and be sure to report back to us on how you got your ass handed to you.

..or tell you what, Slick, try this Strava segment if you think you're such a badass: https://www.strava.com/segments/684946

>>
>>1259738
No pros aren't that much faster than your average semi fit commuter, a lot of people like to overstate how fast they supposedly are, it's the fact that they can keep the pace for 10 times longer than the average rider that makes them pro athletes.

Eventually, as you get more experienced with cycling, you'll likely start going further distances, and eventually you'l get saddle sours that make you ask yourself "is this what ass-cancer feels like?" and you'll buy some shorts.

It only spirals from there.

Since I moved into my van I had to ditch all my roadie gear, which is what I’d prefer to wear. Even mountain biking, I don’t know why mtb’ers are so averse to Lycra.

Today I went on a 2 hour gravel ride in jeans and a long sleeve T. It’s chilly out and in a way it’s really optimal, without fussing with lycra.
>>
>>1263740

>>
>>1264139
Stop crashing so much if that’s an issue
>>
>>1264140
Then you arent really getting better on your mtb
>>
>>1264159
This is true, you gotta crash at least a dozen times, even more in races, if you’re gonna get anywhere
>>
>>1264159
>>1264160
>being the guy everyone say to look out for because you cause crashes
Keep that up and the officials will suspend your race license. Nobody wants to race with someone who is dangerous to be around.
>>
>>1264181
>Implying anyone can be expected to be immune to crashing at any point
If you're so averse to crashing in order to keep your fetishwear intact, everyone who has been improving their skills in the meanwhile is going to outpace you immediately.
>>

>in order to keep your fetishwear intact
Are you literally retarded? You must be.

>MTB
I have zero interest in riding mountainbikes so why should I care? Also I'm sure you don't actually race (with your buddies doesn't count, official races only plz) so what are you even talking about?
>>
>>1264139
Eh, I’ve had my share of busted up Lycra both on road and off, but I think road rash through Lycra happens more often than on dirt. I got annoyed wearing baggy mtb clothes that got snagged on branches back when I lived in the east.

These days it’s just shorts and a cotton t for me.
