What do you guys use in the colder days under or in place of shorts.... tights ,knee warmers etc.??
Have been looking but far too much to choose from, don't want to waste loads of money on something to advanced for my riding etc
Just want to be warm.. :) :) :)

I bought a set of cycling tights from Aldi for about 7 quid, do the job. If i am wearing my knee/shin pads i wear a set of shorts instead.

I ride in shorts all year (with 661 knee pads) though they will range from fox attacks (light for summer), troy lee moto (heavy duty and warmer) and manson 3/4 water proofs (for wet or muddy condictions). Keep riding to keep warm i say

I have used DHB aeron tights for the last couple of years commuting, along with knee length seal skin socks, that combo works well.

but i am already back in shorts now the weather seems to have warmed up a tad, still got the socks on as it's not warm enough to drop those yet!

For racing lycra padded shorts + knee warmers. Fine with gore windstopper ones
For long rides lycra padded shorts +mtb shorts + knee warmers.
For commuting I don't use lycra.
