Interesting way the thread as gone as I wasn't really thinking baggy v lycra.

Although two years old, this http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... =sartorial is still relevant.

To me, lycra only looks good if you look like Contador and them. Someone bought me a jersey a few years back, it makes me look pregnant. The wife still hasn't stopped laughing.

I'm another one who wears lycra underneath baggies. i have never really worn lycra on it's own on the bike, I'm very self conscious. Even in my old racing days (both DH and XC) I wore baggies and didn't give a shit what other people thought!

+1 to that - you just got to wear what works for you. Riding MTBs can be tricky enough as it is, at times - let alone having to overcome clothes that impede you.

If baggies are so great why don't pro xc mtb racers wear them?

Just an observation.

Wear what you feel comfy in. There isn't a clothing etiquette for leisure riding :D
