What pants do you recommend for colder rides? All the ones I can find are 150-200 dollars. Any cheaper options?

An extra set of sweatpants, or two, or three... Riding isn't a fashion show - so who cares.

Cheaper the better; when they're covered in muck, you can either pressure wash, or pitch 'em. Done. Set your budget at $5-10/pair. At that rate, you'll be 5-10 years before ya hit the initial amount.

Only issue I have with sweatpants is if they're baggy at all I seem to catch them on the front of my seat any time I try to get low and shift my weight back.

Check out some of the cross country ski gear if you can find some - is often good bank for your buck! Offers warmth without all the bulk of sweatpants...

Hey! Have you checked out www.dirtyjane.com? Or if you're in Canada .ca.

Well made, technical pants will cost you $150+ but they'll also last you for many years of fun riding. They have fabric that protects you from wind, can be waterproof if that's what you're after, but most have a water repellent finish. They'll also have tapered ankles, and strategically placed pockets and seams (because seams CAN be in the wrong places).

I like to think of it as an investment, Yeah. you could buy cheap pants that will last a few rides, but that's a lot of extra fabric in an already overflowing landfill. Of course, if it's out of your budget then it's out of your budget, but if you get a pair that fits, you love, and last for 5+ years, it'll be totally worth it!

Hope that helps. PS. My favorites are Loamy pants that you can find on Dirty Jane. They have a really comfortable elastic waistband and they're stretchy enough that you can throw a pair of thermals on underneath in cooler weather.

thermal base layer tights under your normal troosers
