View Full Version : Special (?)Shorts.....

10-12-2004, 06:30 AM
I have been riding for about 2 years and unfortuantely my skin has come to react to the Lycra/Spandex. I t has gotten to the point where it is unbearable ( I will spare you the details but imagine cracked, scaly itchy skin and sweating on top!)

I continue to take the medical intervention route, however, I still want to bike. I am looking for shorts with a cotton lining and some wicking capability via the shell. It appeares that the ZOIC co. has such a material but I can't find actual clothing made from it:confused:

Has anybody else run into this problem? Do you know where I can get shorts and tops lined with cotton?

Any thoughts/help/info would be greatly appreciated.

I have a pair of cotton liners with the chamois pad - are you currently using something like that?........I haven't seen anything like your describing but I'll keep an eye out (surfs the net @ work!)
