I'm a fan of denim, but lycra belongs in the saddle. For any cyclist of respectable physique, the 511 "super skinny" takes that look where it doesn't belong.

I wear Carhartt. But not to ride.
I wear 'Whatever' brand cargo shorts with lycra bike shorts under in the summer.
Tights in the winter....


I think it's gimmicky.

I have a pair of these commuter 511's, as well as two pairs of other 511's. I must say, I really like them to ride in. They are much more breathable, and the water repellant coating helps to keep the fibers hydrophobic, allowing quicker drying.

My issue with them: I think they are over priced. I would happily pay more for them if they were American made, but for them to come off that same lines as regular over-seas 511's that sell for half the price, I feel like it's hardly a good value.
