    What is anyone's opinion on white cycling shorts? Like them or not?

    No, my last name is Moore, the see is for C!
    I was just wondering because I found a good sale on some Castelli shorts and the sale is only in white.

    Personally, I don't wear white anything. I can spill/stain with the best of them. I also have convinced myself that black looks smaller I know some models have major see through issues. You might want to search and see if you can find a specific review of the one you want.

    Personally, no. But then, I don't wear white anything because I could stain for England. Guys in white shorts... uh-uh, big no-no.

    But in the pictures the models do look cute in white. So if you like white and ride in dry conditions, why not give it a try. Get a good friend to check the "visibility", though...

    (Just rode behind a guy briefly yesterday, who was wearing very worn black shorts with a large circular thin spot like a bullseye right over his butt crack. My eyes still hurt. I very nearly tapped him on the shoulder and said something, but I just couldn't think of any conceivable way of saying that politely to a stranger.)

    No way for me. I don't wear anything in white. It turns me into a stain magnet...and I would probably be mistaken for a large household appliance.

    Personally, I wouldn't wear them. I have red Castelli shorts that I'm hesitant to wear in public.

    But I do know women who do with confidence. I think "confidence" is the operative word here.

    I'd question how long they'd last - at what point do they stop looking hot and become shorts you'd only wear under tights or on the trainer in the basement?

    What would you wipe your hands on after you patched a tire? Black shorts are PERFECT for that!
