I'll start wearing knickers any time I might have chosen knee warmers for the morning...say 60 or lower. But I ride cold. If it's 60 out I'll be in knickers and a sleeveless jersey...

That extra 8" of material doesn't really hold too much heat to ride all day.

Certainly not today. It was 96 (and climbing on it's way to 101) at the end of my ride this AM.

Somewhere between 65-70. If I start a ride and it's in that range but it's gonna be over 70 for most of the ride, I'll stay with shorts. If it's supposed to stay much below 70 for the duration, I'll usually wear knickers. If its in the low 60s at the start, will probably be below 70 for a couple of hours but is supposed to really warm up for most of the ride, knee warmers. That's just me - everyone has their own tolerances, but riding in shorts much below 70 causes my knees to ache. Usually during the ride, sometimes after, but pretty much every time.

knickers rock.
clean air, cool temps, best rides are when the weather is knicker weather.
