Let me preface this by stating why cyclists shave their legs. Injuries such as road rash heal quicker on hairless legs. That is why cyclists, Tri-athletes and some runners shave their lower extremities. Nuff said.

Here is my dilemma. Shaving is a pain and it kills my razors. Do any of you ladies have any tips on shaving? Any recommendations for shaving alternatives? My leg hair is very fine, so I only have to attack it with a razor 2x a week, but I would like to tackle the problem less often. So, that is my dilemma. Any help out there?

I have heard of this before, actually.

You can try using separate disposible razors for your legs. You can try an electric shaver on them. Or you can use chemical depilatories, whch are nicer to the skin than they used to be, and don't stink like they used to either. And the legs are smooth for a little longer too.

Wax, though -- wax is for masochists. sad.gif

Bah...depilatories, she is for the weak. Now, an Epilady is the true mark of a masochist. LOL

A good shaving will effectively kill a disposable razor on about the third use. Get used to this fact.

Personally, I like the ones on the market now...what are those? Um...Intuition, with the soap/cream built around the blade. Those work very nicely. Then again, I'm lazy and don't like fiddling with shaving creams.

I used to shave my legs for swim team when I was in highschool. I only did it once a year though. Man its hard to shave a years worth of hair off your legs.

Well -- I know that couldn't have been for asphalt burns. smile.gif Why does a swimmer do it? To reduce drag?

And hey, guys. Once you get the shaving down, you're really going to like the feel of panty hose.

No, try it. It didn't hurt Joe Namath any. wink.gif

yeah, it's for less drag in the water. We did it for the big meet every year to help cut a couple tenths of a second off our time. I think it was a psychological help too. Kinda like "If I shaved my legs for this damn thing I better go faster..."

LOL My husband was in swim team too...he could never break down and shave the legs though. Wear a speedo two sizes too small, yes. But shaving was humiliating. ::cough, snicker::

I bet they are nice legs too if you are biking all the time! And sorry to tell you...there just is no easy way...we ladies have been doing it the hard way for years...but if you want that nice smooth skin on your legs...well...you just have to keep shaving...Not too bad if you are only doing it 2 or 3 times a week...and lucky for you it is a fine sort of hair...things could be worse! I think we'd like to see a pic of you in your biking gear and those nice smooth legs! Are you biking for fun or do you race? Or well, I guess it is still for fun...but...what sort of biking do you do?

It was always really weird jumping in the pool after shaving the legs. Very weird feeling, but kinda nice. Bed sheets were weird too.
