    SR,

    Sorry to be a kill joy, but I fancy Pez have been misleading you. I think they have been to Japan and indulged in a little clothing printing. Its all the go there at the moment. :D

    Kind regards,

    SR,
    Oh Dear, My most profuse apologies.

    I had hoped to help you. I fancy I will be in Tokyo in April. I thought that maybe you would have liked to arrange to have those spandex done in a like style. :D That is like the skirts. Not the cycling pants :eek:

    Then there would be no problem with finding a gentleman to tke cycling with you!!

    Sorry, sorry, sorry, :eek:

    Kind regards,

    If you check closely, you can see the guy in the middle is circumcised.

    Eg,

    Go to google select images and search for "printed skirts" you will find among the flotsam a site "ussokcity.com/ fashion" thats where I stumbled upon it.

    Maybe your not getting out enough? :D

    Heres another for your delectation.

    Kind regards,

    To redeem myself, I shall go into the `big Mikan` {orange} this weekend and personally investigate this matter. I will report my findings upon my return. Until then, do keep your fingers crossed. It is cold and windy in the big city...a rare find this might be....

    I don't think you guys are going to look at them .. maybe you fancy one yourselves .. ;) maybe?

    I think it is a wee bit cold here too - now they best not come out with that for bike shorts as there would probably be some major rubber necking and crashes .. can't be any worse than red bike shorts ehh, ehh .. :p

    Don´t care what colour so long as they don´t look like you´ve wet yourself when you sweat and don´t go transparent in the rain ( ¿ remember the Australian Cofidis rider in yellow shorts during the team time trial a few years ago ? ) :eek:

    The only cyclist that I know of that has one remaining testicle is Lance. And that, my friends, is why USPS and now Discovery always wear black shorts....:)

    Just thought I would provide an update - I was informed that the abundance of left wearers has a medical basis - apparently the left testicle usually hangs a bit lower.



    Now how many male readers just had to excuse themselves to go to the bathroom? :D
