Dressing up to go out
I don’t worry too much about my looks on the bike. I’ve got some classic clobber that the noob would not understand.
I rider faster than most though and that’s what counts, not sitting around in cafes with some “latest name” carbon dream machine colour-co-ordinating to my lycra.Posted 6 years agoMilitant_bikerMember
I have to say I’ve become a bit anal at matching socks and shirt to the road bike. Gutted that I couldn’t get another S-Works 2D helmet in red and white after I broke the last one. Black or charcoal… 🙁
Mountain bike usual garb is blue and yellow shirt with red Camelback. Keeping it primary at least.Posted 6 years agoHarry_the_SpiderSubscriber
I am not a stylish man. I look good at funerals, but that it about it.
When riding my mountain bike I tend to wear whatever I can find. Yellow top, blue top, green top, whatever is clean top. And none of it matching my brown and gold camo pattern Giro MTB lid.
However, since I’ve been riding my road bike I’ve started to dress for the occasion. Top and natty little cap to match the bike and Spesh roadie helmet. Has anyone else who has turned to road bikes later in life noticed this? If so, what are your colours? I’m a red, black and white man.
Next puchase will be one of these.
To go with this.

I’m sorry but road biking garb is one of the reasons I’ve just sold all my roadie gear to get back to MTB. It’s the middle class version of chavs and their footy tops. No imagination or class can be shown in matching bib shorts and and overly toight jerseys. Unless you;re in a race you just look like an eedgit. Looking forward to getting back in to just wearing stuff on the bike.
NB – I am a dapper gent while at work and other play so it’s not due to being a scruff.Posted 6 years ago
