Wondering what the popular opinion is of wearing shorts for hot weather riding. With the blazing hot temps we've been having here in Colorado recently, I've taken to riding with mountain bike shorts and TP199 knee pads for trail rides which usually involve some low speed pavement getting to and from the trail. It really makes a difference keeping cool, and offers close to the same protection as my normal MX pants over the knee pads. Obviously abrasion resistance is lacking, but there's always give and take. Any of you guys wear shorts, or gear up differently for hot weather? .
