Personally I wear nothing but then I'm relatively new to this game and may be transgressing some
sacred rules. It may be illegal for all I know :) I mean, surely you would see the seams of any
underwear worn which wouldn't look good would it?

Anyway, now that winter is here I'm beginning to wonder if I should be wearing some additional
clothing down below. Last Sunday was about 3 degrees, lower with the wind-chill, and I suffered
with, how can I put it.... extreme shrinkage!

I'm also worried about torn bib-longs in the nether region when several miles from home :)

Any recommendations, underwear wise?

Fred

PS I don't want to get into the Lycra for MTB rider right or wrong debate - I just like the feel of
the stuff OK?.

Good 'ol thermal undies. So warm, so comfy, and no shrinkage! For a few extra bucks, LLBean has a
great set of sweat absorbing thermal undies (http://tinyurl.com/ysbo, my undergarment of choice).

Shrinkage is reversible, btw. Takes some time, though, and more of it the older one gets. Seek
assistance if necessary.

Worry more if you tear something else. By the way, one piece of advice for various situations.
Always carry extra gear of SOME kind in the extreme cold. You can improvise as long as you at
least have something to work with. I'm a kitchen sink kind of guy in this regard, both with
clothes and with tools/equipment. Never regretted it, and though I've carried more baggage for
more miles than is reasonable, the few times I've needed something, I had enough to avoid
catastrophes (or extremely long walks dragging a bike.)

any sort of wicking undies will do the trick, beware chafing tho.

I carry tools, pump, puncture kit, spare tube, food (I'm a diabetic so this is essential), camera,
mobile phone, PMR radio, moist tissues :), in fact you name it - apart from spare clothes that is.
I take you point though, I should just about have enough room for some trousers and a top of some
sort -good thing I bought one of the bigger Camelbaks :).

If ya don't mind rubbing yourself (or having your significant other do it) in certain places,
vaseline prevents the chafing.

If the longs have a chamois or synthetic equivalent then nothing is always best, The longer the ride
the more obvious this becomes to the undercarriage.

I generally wear padded bike shorts and knee warmers then pull a pair of tights (no chamois) over
them. I'm good with this combo to the mid 20's F.
