Figs, Stones, Nuts… Yep, we’re talking about Balls.

I went to the Chicago Bike Swap on Saturday in hopes of finding a great deal on a road bike for Mooseman. Unfourtuantely I didn’t find one but I did learn a LOT about cycling and cycling gear.
I met up with Dave Wallach (Pace of Chicago) who offered up some great advice. Outside of discussing the pros and cons between aluminum and carbon frames, Shimano and Tiagra componets and weather or not I should use aero bars, while looking at cycling shorts and bibs one subject that continued to come up were “gentleman’s vegetables”potato2.jpg
I’ve spent several hours working out on my bike trainer and when I do I wear regular gym shorts. I’ll be honest, at the end of my workouts I’m a little… uncomfortable.

Dave was kind enough to give me a tutorial of Tri shorts vs. cycling short and give me the pros and cons, plus some other tips to protect your balls.

  1. What a great article! I know of another related topic that you could touch on next time. Perhaps about the Perils of gambling and the lyrical works of Charlie Daniels… You know, give you readers some insite into Phil Castello…
