I got my knickers from Oregon Cycling Wear for $60, and at times, they have them on sale for $40 or so. While I am impressed by your hack, and have a pair of pants I want to try it on, one need not spend an arm and a leg for something as simple as bike knicker.


My first knickers were corduroy and had elastic at the cuff just below the knee. I wore them to grade school 1946-47. My latest knickers are hacked Bugle Boys. If one has to wear long pants it is the way to go. A pair of scissors plus needle and thread are all you need. I go a little fancier, gather them at the cuff and sew with a machine. If you can fix a flat on your bike then you can sew up some knickers.


I do the same thing with khakis or slacks that get too worn out to look professional anymore...cut them short and take them to the dry cleaners to get hemmed. Cheaper than buying actual knickers, plus you're reusing something you might otherwise just throw out. Works great.

Do these knickers have a chamois? Or, are they strictly a fashion statement?

Oldfool has got a good idea. I know good, cheap wool slacks can be found at your local thrift store. You can easily convert a pair into knickers...


I think cycling knickers do make a fashion statement.
