When I have hairy legs I always end up pinching the hairs in a painful way when I try to put on/adjust knee warmers and shorts. Also tights feel weird.

It's just an option, of course when I shave my legs I don't imagine I suddenly become a pro rider.

He just elaborated (well) on a point the rest of us made. What are you talking about?

Of course - I didn't think of that one.

Interesting though, with bodybuilding, the sport is judged on aesthetic criteria whereas with cycling, it's clearly not - yet the "clean" body is "preferred".

It is (for me anyway) an interesting cultural trope of cycling.

I would only shave if I was racing, for obvious reasons, but the thing is I'm not racing and I keep my hair thank you very much, I'm too lazy to shave anyway.
