    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.

    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?

    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.

    Regards,

    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,

    some of those new saddles have a hole in the middle no? ;)

    i originally got that photo from my Danish sister-in-law and posted it on a couple other forums.
    there's also an old Robin Williams joke in there somewhere...

    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

    Kind regards,
