    Thanks for the insight, skibum. Maybe the guys that Surly saw were wearing legwarmers and it just *looked* like they had the tights under the shorts.

    I wear my padded shorts under my tights. However, my brother-in-law is a masters road racer. During the recent very cold race, he had quite a bit of chafing in certain spots (can't say specifically!) and one of the other male racers told him to put his tights under his shorts. When he did so, he said it cut down on his problems ...
