Well I am looking for those lycra thingy's that go past your knee.
What are those called and where can I find them in uh Pearl Izumi, prefferably.

As you know, regular lycra shorts go above your knee.
What's the ones that go past your knee, but not all the way down towards your ankle.
The end is some sort of at the cav of your legs.

Thanks.

Its like what this guy is wearing.

Or knee warmers (if you want the ability to pull them off when it warms up)

Capris used to be called "pedal pushers" back in the 50's.

I guess the first step is to grow some leg muscles.
You can also just get smaller knee warmers. Good elastic in your shorts will help hold them up as well.

The advantage of bibs and knee warmers is that you can still pull up the leg and pee, at the side of the road.............(sorry wimminz)

Make 'em tighter at the top. overlap the shorts, as others have said. If they don't have good gripper elastic, a bit of silicone sealant will add a rubbery non-skid layer. You can put some on the outside of the legwarmers, too, to help them grip against the shorts.
