I voted Balls and All.

It's not a full on "salt the earth" approach, generally speaking. Everything below the waist is gone, the scranus region is heavily landscaped. Have a nice day thinking about that.

How much of a difference in speed does shaving make, anyway?

Should be a different poll for men and women and for men it depends if you're as hairy as a Gorilla or not. Stopping at the bottom of knicks looks ridiculous.

I mostly just go to the knees... maybe somewhat up the tighs, though I can't exactly see where I stop...

I havew generally found that shaved legs heal nearly twice as fast (and more cleanly) than hairy ones. Thats what you meant right? Hope you´re not on a cycling forum thinking leg shaving is a speed issue

I was! I never knew why people went to the trouble. I'm not a racer.

Greetings all,

Is there another sport, other than swimming perhaps - and even then I'm not sure it trickles down to recreational swimmers, where a similar body "adjustment", is part of engaging in the sport?

In Canada, hockey players usually sacrifice their front teeth to the game but I'm pretty sure that's by circumstance, rather than by choice.

I say this as someone who, rather suddenly, has been seduced by cycling and am finding this whole shaving thing a bit weird.

Don't get me wrong, as a dedicated aesthete, I certainly appreciate the appearance of a hairless body but, that's part of the problem for me: it seems fetishistic, narcissistic and, some might say homoerotic. Not that there's anything wrong with any of these attributes! I'm really trying to understand it from the periphery, realizing that the vortex of passion for the sport is likely going to lead to an inevitable question:

"To shave or not to shave?"

Thanks for the info. But otherwise, this thread is absolutely useless.
