    You forgot one simple reason for not shaving your legs… you look like a girl, and men with shaved legs do not look good.

    The reason most of you Southern softies shave your legs is because you like the feel when you rub your legs together. I have never seen any of you compete in a TT, and very rarely riding for prolonged periods of time on the drops. I imagine that makes a much more significant improvement than shaving.

    Cycling is not a lifestyle! You’re starting to sound like a journalist! Riding bikes is a fun thing to do when we’re not doing the things that matter. Whether you shave your legs or not is lost on me.

    Coppi; Merckx; and Fabu. I could be mistaken here, but no one called them girls, and even though I’m no where near being pro, I think confusing me for a girl is a far stretch of the imagination.

    Stuart, I wholly agree that riding bikes is fun, but I’m sure you’ll agree that for those who choose the bicycle over a car, or public transport, this is a chosen lifestyle. As for shaving, that too is a choice. Either way, let’s keep cool and happy this summer!

    Three good reasons not to shave: Gorillas. Goliath. Godzilla.
    None of these has or had shaved legs, and they’re all hard as nails.
    None can ride a bike, however.

    Fundamentally, this is a ‘bacon tastes good’ connundrum, because a pig is also a filthy animal. There can be no agreement, so let it go, you hairy-as*d m*therf*kas. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7sSViDWLLg&safe=active
