  1. to avoid all the petro chemical in poly.. and nylons we're started working on new hemp and wool fibres. hemp for body regulating and merino for subtle warmth. Still no replacement for a hot summer synthetic how ever.

  2. I've done some 2-4 week tours while pretty much just wearing hiking clothing: walking shorts, hiking shoes and flat pedals, flannel shirts, wool sweaters, etc.. I have often done consistent 100-160km days, I've always been pretty comfortable wearing this stuff, and I have never worn Lycra. I'm not very fast wearing this kit, but then again, I'm riding a tank while carrying a full repair kit, a pump, a couple of water bottles, and a bunch of extra socks. I think it's very easy to do most things on a bicycle while wearing "civilian" clothing. (I do very much enjoy your channel, though, even though I'm not your kind of cyclist.)

  3. I wear a bib under active shorts and a tshirt with under armor sleeveless shirt under it. I ride 30-40 miles in it. I honestly dont think wearing straight lycra would make a difference with me.

  4. In my mid 50's and have really caught the cycling bug. Got the bike, need the clothes. My problem, if it is a problem, is i am really lanky! Long, very skinny legs that whilst strong, i really do not want them on show. So shorts out of the question! Don't like track suit bottoms, so not sure what to get. Maybe a stupid question, i just don't know. Anyone got good advice?

  5. I ride in a tropical climate and lycra is really all you want here. Anything else is just way too sweaty. I even use arm and leg 'warmers'. Thin ones obviously and that's for protection against the sun. Otherwise I'll burn alive. I stopped using cleats though and went back to flats. It's just so much more practical and the downside of not being clipped in well… I don't really notice a downside.
