Winter Clothing

I wear "tights" under my regular old shorts in the winter. I
have been looking in the catalogs (Nashbar, Performance) for
some more colorful "tights", but they all seem to be black.
I know Henry Ford did not invent bicycle clothing, but does
anyone know of anyplace that sells more colorful "tights." I
have thought about buying some white long underwear and
dying them yellow or green, but when I suggest it my wife
hands me the single's column in the paper.

Thanks

Well, Mary/Tom, gender confusion issues must indeed be
confounding :)

Non-black clothing for winter riding... Possibly slushy,
wet, nasty gritty riding? Riding where my tights end up with
lots of nasty black grit on them? In bright
green/yellow/blue?

No.

. . .

But if you must, try probikekit - they seem to have at least
some blue ones. Maybe go looking in their site for others.

We may not like doctors, but at least they doctor. Bankers
are not ever popular but at least they bank. Policeman
police and undertakers take under. But lawyers do not give
us law. We receive not the gladsome light of jurisprudence,
but rather precedents, objections, appeals, stays, filings
and forms, motions and counter-motions, all at $250 an hour.

Yes actually, full fenders front and back. Which helps a
lot. But when I'm zipping down a curvy hill at a significant
clip in heavy rain (it is Seattle after all (I'm still soggy
from this mornings ride in)), there still is somewhat
significant spray.

I should probably work on adding some better mudflaps...

Not sure why you're looking for "tights" instead of tights,
but if you're willing to think running as opposed to
bicycling (especially since you're wearing them over
shorts), you'll find a wider range of colors.

Right now, sporting goods stores are trying to off-load
their winter merchandise, so you should be able to find some
tights on sale. I was at REI just last week and picked up a
pair of thermal tights on sale. Two years ago, around this
time of year, I got a pair of blue thermal tights in the
running wear section of Sports Authority.

If you'd rather shop on line, put "thermal running tights"
into froogle, and see what you get.

Why under? Seems like a real nuisance if you want to take
them off because it warms up.

Try Danskin. They probably have dance belts too.

And rightly so.

Iseem to recall Velowear.com also selling colored tights... At any rate, it's good stuff at a good price.
