Well, I just discovered these bicycle pants from Levi's of all companies. Maybe they could work for you

My favorite thing about mtn biking is the good looking men (and women) in spandex.

That said, I would die in pants. We don't get to go down nearly enough to get the airflow needed.
I've recently quit buying baggies. I have enough lightweight liners. I keep tearing up shells, or the shells that are out there have a bunch of pointless pockets and zippers when I have everything in my Camelbak. My boardshorts have triple stitching, vent well, and are pretty abrasion resistant. The only thing pant/short pockets are good for is Clif Bar wrappers.

You know what's "gay"? being the uber gear-head on the trail wearing too much crap because he's afraid of some scratches. Prepare to be mocked.

You know what's also "gay"? Pushing your bike up every climb. Hopefully, you're riding solo and not irritating your riding buds who are waiting for you, or worse; not jumping out of the way fast enough for others on the trail who are blowing past you while you hike-a-bike.

Or maybe you're a super badass downhiller and strictly ride lift-served trails. If that's the case, carry on.

I say screw it, let this fellow get a case of 'crack-itis' and wear some 501's.

There were times when I lived in Philly that I would make the 15 mile ride into the city and not want to walk around the shops in spandex. I did what Hot Stuff suggested in post #10-- wear good cycling shorts and a pair of whatever shorts make you happy over top of them.

I have a pair of these. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...x?ModelID=9363 I wear them over lycra bibs in cooler weather. But, they don't breathe well enough for me to wear above about 60 degrees or so.

The hipster bike culture brought us a ton of cycling pants. and sadly manpries as well.

I've seen plenty of downhill guys riding in jeans over pads.
It's not like the skill hill crowd really works up that much a sweat riding up hill.

Personally a pair of baggies shorts and my knee pads are plenty to keep my skin on my legs when bouncing down the trail.

But I fully understand the dislike of short pants.

Has anyone suggested lycra shorts a size too small to keep everything "controlled" and a pair of Assless* Chaps?

This is basically what I do on a daily basis, 25 mile round trip commute. I have a few pairs of biking underwear and then I wear a pair of hiking pants or shorts over them. If I have to stop at shops, its overall better to be wearing actual clothes.

Generally, one suggestion for good pants is what I use. If you can get them in the USA (I think you can), the brand FjallRaven makes hiking pants out of a cotton weave called G-1000. It is both light and pretty breathable, but tougher than hell. The pair of pants I have I first wore for hiking for 7 years. Then I used them for remodeling, landscaping, and roofing at my home and summer cabin. Finally I started using them for bike pants and have about 2000 miles of biking on them and they are holding up strong. They're expensive, but they work...

Not that many stores, it seems, but it is available.

Waxed fabric... interesting throwback.

Yep, that's the stuff. You can get it with or without the wax. All my hiking pants are unwaxed but I have a down winter jacket that's treated.

It's almost impossible to destroy that gear, and damn we've tried...
