If they aren't translucent, then it's fine really.

Even then, they show a bit more, um, topography than something black. Showing a bulge is one thing, showing your religion another.

or are they good?
You won't be the first RBRer to wear them. :)

BTW: I'm not the guy in the white shorts; I am on the far left in black shorts and a red jersey.

Unless your saddle is spotlessly clean and it is a dry day; as long as you don't mind looking like you took a fresh dump in your shorts, go for it!

Maybe I'd have to be a fatty to understand but I never really understood the draw of bibs either. My shorts seem to go on and stay in place without the suspenders.

Maybe it's a man girdle-thing.
Just try 'em. You'll never want to go back to shorts.

suspenders hold our pants up.

If I could ride as well as the other people in the photo, I would wear white shorts all of the time and let people post pictures of it. Two of the guys in the photo -- not the guy in the white shorts -- have competed against people that you would recognize (and not from teh Lounge). There actually was a photo of me on RBR wearing white shorts, but it no longer is available. :D I bought a pair of Castelli shorts last summer that are white except for a black "modesty panel" in the middle. They look good, but address some of the issues with completely white shorts.

BTW: Thanks for the quote. I changed my sig as soon as you posted the quote in PO about a year or so ago. If I ever were crazy enough to get involved in politics, I would consider using it as a campaign slogan. :D
