I have owned several chain driven bikes and still own one, still prefer shaft drive any day of the week. Quieter, smoother, no mess & less maintenance period. After all that was the whole idea!

Recommendation: Womens riding shorts

Are bicycle shorts the recommended choice for a passenger? I wear Moto Skiveez or bicycle shorts just don't know if there is something better for the wife or not.
