  • Brightly coloured baggy shorts?
  • You see them in the magazine shots these days: bold primary colours.

    Yes or No?

    Yes I’ve seen them.
    No I don’t care what folk wear.

    We sell lots of red Fox Attack Q4 but never really bold jerseys. Loads of bold road jerseys but only ever black bibshorts.

    If you’ve got the skills then why not? Actually even if you don’t have the skills then as long as you’re happy, who gives a stuff?

    Not an age thing either so … go on Buzz!

    Sure I saw a pic with rOcKeTdOg wearing some really cool baggies, not in-your-face bright but a little different to the normal.

    Lol @ rd 😀 Definitely checked but the colours looked darker. Do you have a similar pair?

    Does white count as bright?

    Occasionally I can also be seen sporting the coolest (temperature wise) shorts ever. Only in private on the hill, never the pub – or next to mrs_oab.

    White doesn’t count. More worryingly: someone seems to have glued your bike to a rock face.

    Remember, It’s all about looking Good……..

    I’ve ordered a Tennis Ball Yeller SC frame so i reckon i need some matching shorts,
    Bright seems to be in ? the HOWIES Dyfi Jacket sold out in a day or so in Orange, As long as its not Toight and Lycra then i reckon you could get away with pretty much anything,

    *Except Dirty white ones ?

    All the bike shops that I visit have loads of choice in shorts for men, whilst us women are lucky to have a choice between a couple of almost identical styles, invariably black, with ridiculously flappy legs so you look like a schoolboy wearing his big brother’s shorts! Oh, and a choice between jerseys in various shades of pink or purple!!

    Poc blue flow shorts are quite nice for a change,

    team them up with my Howies orange Dyfi jacket and i’ll look like a poster paint spillage in a nursery.

    I still prefer black kit though as it doesn’t show up marks, mud etc and i can wear it a fair number of times before having to worry bout washing them.

    Folk should wear what coloursthey want but remember the lyrics of the Divine Comedy song –

    But it’s hard to get by when your arse is the size
    Of a small country
    And everybody sings “ba ba ba da…”

    I really fancy some Olive Green Royal Signature shorts, but I’m always put off by the pricing of ‘fashionable’ mountain bike clothing.
