    Sorry to continue the threadjack, but I honestly doubt that the checker cares who you are buying the razor for ;)

    Just don't buy a watermelon... 8-[

    I didn't start shaving till I got out of high school because I did not want to get shit from my friends for shaving my legs, lol. Now I don't shave my legs at since I am too lazy to keep up with it as periodic thing to do. Any thoughts on waxing?

    Just do it, bro. The cutie at the checkout counter will look at you like your a REAL man because you have the cajones to do something that makes other men tremble in fear.

    Ticks would be the number one reason for me, they scare the crap out of everyone I know. Plus, my tattoos look better!

    When I swam in college, I shaved everything my suit didn't cover (except my head, of course).

    In keeping with that line of thinking, I'll shave down for high-priority races as it helps me get into "game mode".

    If you have a g/f or wife or whatnot, she can give you tips or help you out. If you shave in the shower and both wind up wet and half clothed, well, that's just a bonus. ;)

    Mid-thigh. I get little red bumps when I shave where my riding clothes cover. Not pleasant. I'll trim higher so it don't look funny, though. TMI?

    I enjoy using the Gillette Fusion Power

    Works great on the face and the legs. Shaving isnt bad at all, its when its start to grow in and get spiky that sucks.

    How many days before your race do you shave down.

    I hear road racers in the big tours won't even shave their face as it takes energy to heal after a shave. Anyone know any facts/rumors about this?
