    Is there anything else out there aside from Lycra? I bought a bike yesterday and I want to get something comfortable I just don't know how comfortable the Lycra is.

    A good pair of riding shorts is invaluble. Or you can get mt. bike shorts to wear.

    Get padded shorts with a baggy shell, if you're worried about plum-smugglers violating your sense of modesty.

    Either way, you will want padding, and a multi-panel lycra short is designed to move with you as you pedal. Trust me. And there is usually a noticeable difference between a six panel short, and an eight panel short.
