It's the same thing with black shorts, look at Hermida's p..... And I agree, EVERYBODY watch, everybody is courious about it.

But any way, I still prefer to use the lycra shorts instead of those uncomfortable loose shorts a lot of MTB bikers like to use.

I am going out and getting red shorts this week and will post A.S.A.P :)
yup .... gotta get some of those black shorts with seat padding so to soften the apparent pack shape into a lesser bulk.

So how did the bets go? My little problem is that i often go "abid excited" when i dont wont to! at lineup and after finishing and so on... I really think that white shorts are damn cool but i dont dare to wear them! Any suggestions? What shall do? Maybe be bold as the belgian guys and just see reactions? how would you react?

i think the guys in red look great at the end of day whos really looking, i new a few pro guys in belgium that used to take bets on getting abit excited then walking in to a coffee shop to order coffee to see the reaction. Racing cyclists have great bods why not show it.

I totally agree!!!

Gerardo,

I spent some time in Mexico a month or so back. Didn't make it to Monterrey though.

I liked the concept of a galvanized iron bucket full of beer on the resaurant table. It sort of set the linen table cloths and silver cutlery off to a tee! :D Is that something that is common or is it just a western coastal thing?

I've not been able to find the small steel buckets here in Australia. But when I do we'll have them at the first dinner party afterwards. The buckets will go well with the erotic drink coasters from Greece and the Sushi sets from Japan and the canible forks from the Pacific. :eek:

Kind regards,

The bucket thing is a very commong thing in all México. I like mine full of Dos Equis, the Amber version of course!. Do you do Road or MTB?. Monterrey have beautiful great mountains to do MTB.

Gerado,

I am an old fashion road cyclists, who dabbled in triathlon in the very early days before it became too popular and competitive.

I had a go at two varieties of Dos Equis while I was there. The amber appealed to me also. The only Mexican beer we ever see in Australia is Corona.

In relation to the red shorts, no I can't say I have even considered buying them. I just don't measure up in that regard unless the wive's best friend is seriously savage!

Kind regards,

Just make 'em all black, and not like Lampre-Caffita's current approach. You maybe can't see anything (well, except possibly in brixtonbiker's case :D), but the "built in pubic hair" look is frickin' ridiculous.
Built-in pubic hair???:D That's a hell of an analogy but I can understand where you're coming from....

BTW - The original msg of this thread was e-mailed to me shortly after the thread was started....

I think riders in the northern hemisphere go left and riders in the southern hemisphere go right. Its called the Coriolis force. Something to do with the rotation of the earth.

There are more posters from the northern hemisphere causing skewed results.
hmm does that mean that as i am in northern hemisphere the effect makes it go left,, but what if i go on holiday will it go right to satisfy the conditions there lol

Pengu,

Maybe its just the hand that you use to play with it? It is a great toy if you have no others after all. :D
