    I would love to wear white but find that white clothes:
    a) are see through
    b) are easy to get dirty
    c) make me look fat

    Maybe that's why my entire wardrobe is black!

    Trust me, most shorts are black for a reason!!!

    Also, you ladies aren't making me feel any better about the white capris I'm planning on wearing to a fancy shower this weekend!!! I had already decided I wouldn't eat anything and drink only water! I'll probably trip on the sidewalk and go down! I'm a total slob!

    I am a dirt magnet. No white shorts! I'm okay with a little white on the side of the leg as an accent, but not with all-over white.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    And you definitely need to be sure the lawn is well manicured if you are going to wear white shorts............

    <snort> OMG, Bike Chick...

    I could not find the thread but someone, a long time ago, raved about the white Assos shorts in this forum. In those, only the front is white in the current vintage of shorts (the older ones had more white).

    Haha!! So true!! Wear white panties at home to test how it looks before venturing out with your white bike shorts.

    I have a bit of cellulite so if I wear white pants anyone will be able to see through them and I think it will look kinda of like cottage cheese.

    I haven't worn white pants or shorts in years meaning even off bike.

    If someone can wear white shorts without all those problems, great.

    A sale price isn't a good deal if you'll never wear them.

    Bike Chick, that's hilarious!!

    There was another thread about shorts and transparency, I can't remember exactly but there was a good tip about checking transparency on worn shorts. Wear undies with some kind of print, put on your shorts and check the mirror. Bend like you are on the bike and if you can see the print, chances are without the undies, you'll see other things.

    I won't wear white because then I wouldn't be able to spit on my hands and wipe off the grease and dirt without it showing.

    On a recent charity ride, their was a couple, African American and very very "zaftig". They were both kitted out in white shorts. Fortunately I was only behind them for a very short while, but even then it was way too much visual information.

    just sayin

    I may not've been the first to say it, but that's definitely how I check bike shorts! They had a bunch of Cannondale shorts at TJ Maxx once and my striped underwear was visible through ALL of them.


    More on-topic, I was running behind a guy mountain biking in shorts that had white kind of around the top of the back...like a wide stripe-ish. Definitely saw some crack. I couldn't quite go fast enough to pass him, either...
