This thread needs some balance. I used to be firmly in the pro shave camp, but these days between work and family not sure I can be bothered.

I'm also often mismatching my jersey/bib as I'm getting better and my bike is getting fancier, so there's a theme to it ...

Simple -- the "avoid bollocks and knob" rule applies (see Cycle Chat, Darwinism thread).

Some will never learn though... one needs to try it first then it'll be a lesson they never forget. :frightened:

Tried the epilator today... ever watched those movies where the main character have to saw off his own arm, it's kind of like that..
results look pretty good though but I will not let it any near ballocks or whatever you guys call it :)

Epilation can give you spider veins (according to my spouse), so between that and the chemical cosh that is depilatory cream, I'd recommend shaving as the lesser evil.

Talk to your wife first!!

Having not shaved since before I met my wife, getting back into riding last year, and feeling like a cyclist again, I shaved Sunday.

Of course, she has not stopped complaining or teasing since.

Shaving is too much of a tradition not to do it.
