meese How about simply getting taller boots? You do wear boots when on the bike, right?

UncleRock Yeah I had the problem when I was testing some Timberland Pro Series Bibs
They don't have vecro bottoms.
A Buddy gave me some velcro that wraps around and sticks to itself. They use it to hold coils of steel stock from unwinding.
I cut a couple pieces the right length had plenty left over. It has found many uses since getting on my bike.
You could also try USMC Boot Blouses from your local army + Navy store.

Pant clips..duh

Thanks to all. Now that I know they are called pant clips, a google turns up millions of'em. I'm on my way to warm legs again

two options

J&P cycles and Dennis Kirk (the latter's website is sell what are essentially outside-the-boot pant loops that clip onto your motor-side pant cuff, go outside (but under) the boot, then clip onto the outside pant cuff, are elasticized and keep the pants down...they are mostly made for harley-types (they have about a dozen styles, from basic to flaming eagles and stuff)

OR, you could just pick up a pair of elastic bicycle pant straps (the kind commuters use for keeping their business suit pants from getting tangled in their mountain bike chains)

Either way, make sure that there isn't anything metal or rough that might come into contact with chrome or paint on a clip---if there is, I found a neat product at Home Depot, a liquid rubber essentially, in the hardware section meant for dipping the handles of old pliers, etc. to make them rubbercoated and new again...that could be used I imagine to take the edge off the parts that might scratch.

My two cents...

George_S I only had this problem with a shorter pair of jeans. Your pants are (obviously) too short for riding, plain and simple. Buy longer length pants for riding.

Someone also advertises in “Rider” magazine that has a little nicer looking clips.

STARFIGHTER When I bought my Aerostitch pants they (Riders warehouse) wanted me to get them longer......
I resisted a bit, then finally gave in.
tried them on.......too long...........BUT...
They are great when riding (which is what I got them for)

zippy_gg I tuck my jeans inside my boots and my Cortech pants over them. It seems that the thickness of the jeans and their non-slickness keeps the Cortech from riding up...

Hold my pants down

I know this is going to sound silly but I can't figure out how to keep my pant legs from hiking up while I ride I use the First Gear Hypertex pants for winter and they fit great. But during the course of the ride, the leg hikes up and my ankle gets cold. I've tried really cranking down on the velco bottom strap and they still ride up. Has anyone ever heard of a boot strap for pants that will go under your heel to keep you pants from riding up? Am I the only dude this happens to
