I've been pretty slack with my commuting so far this winter, and in
recognition of the fact I'm entered in the Ride Around The Bay in
October (with the slower of two work sponsered teams), I figured that
I'd better start getting back in the habit. However I'm finding
the...er...brisk? tempratures in the mornings a little daunting and was
thinking of getting some cold/wet weather gear. I'm not a huge fan of
jackets, I'm pretty happy with my jersey and an undershirt, but I wanted
to get something for my legs and was wondering whether people would
recommend leg warmers with nicks or full tights/pants?

Cheers

I bought a pair of the mens/unisex full length zip leg fleecy knicks from Uno about 4 weeks ago for $70... they are extremely warm for those chilly melb mornings. The crutch is a bit bulky for me but for the price they are excellent value..Its worth checking out the store at any rate.

The 8 Hr enduros in NSW can be a bit chilly at the start and end in
Winter, since the sun is down. One of my mates was laughing at me last
year because I was wearing:

Nzo Dobies (riding shorts that look like normal shorts, not knicks)
A t-shirt
Leg warmers
A large fleece jacket
ugg boots.

I was warm and comfortable, I didn't care.

Striker, listen, and you listen close: flying a plane is no different
than riding a bicycle just a lot harder to put baseball cards in the
spokes.

Thanks for posting that. I had a rummage at the back of the cupboard,
found my old Cima knicks. Getting rather ragged, but tight enough to
keep the legwarmers in place.

Happy now.

I've been putting the knee warmers over the knicks, not under, and found they don't slip. Well they do, a bit, but much less, they just haul on the knicks so I have to watch that plumbers crack.
