I wore jeans all the time with great boots, helmet, jacket and gloves......then I watched a guy lowside in race leathers on the street at about 20 mph. His new knee puck was absotively ruined.
I wear a stitch roadcrafter 1pc most of the time. If it's going to be a spirited ride I may throw the bohn back protector under for some extra protection.
If I need to be warm, my roadgear perforated pant and jacket with the liners in are fantastic

Do you have pad/pucks on your roadcrafter?

Weird. I bicycle all the time. It never occurred to me to wear bicycling shorts under pants. Does it really work? Doesn't it get hot?

Bike shorts are mileage eaters. Any ride over 300 miles and I have a pair on. They wick away sweat and keep monkey butt to a minimum. Highly recommended.

Nope, I use my brass ball as axel sliders on the front fork. Or the 1/2" chicken strips.

Good article.

Saw a middle aged couple yesterday afternoon...jean shorts, tank tops, flip flops, sunglasses...and helmets. Some things just make you shake your head LOL

I wear alot more gear now, since I started creeping up on the 50 year mark, than I did when I was younger. Now its boots, gloves, leather jacket and/or vest, jeans...helmet not as often as I probably should, but more than I ever did in the past.
