    I am a “spacker” in the eyes of my colleagues.

    Well, your colleagues are clearly tossers who think it’s still the early-80s, so who cares what they think?

    God forbid i put my trouser clips on to stop material flappage on the way home. They’ll all collapse! They still don’t understand why somebody chooses to ride to work.

    Hang on – do you mean you have your AM45’s on and you’re wearing your work trousers? In which case you are a spacker.

    Could be worse. They could be 5 10’s

    They probably can’t figure out why you have a pair of flats that can take SPD cleats. Should be either one or the other (unless you are a World Cup downhiller!)

    Your riding your bike not at London fashion! Crack on with your ride home, you look great!

    Apparently the tiger does not concern itself with the opinion of sheep.

    Think it means ignore them. I have used this recently with work colleagues who snigger at my cycling attire. It seems to work. They look constipated for a second or two ,realise what I’m getting and then tell me to **** off.

    Job done!

    Why have you changed your shoes already (I suspect I know the answer to this one, is it because your desperate for some attention and this is the only way you can think of getting some)?

    I had nothing to contribute to STW and dreamed up this baby.

    From the title, I expected you to be a 29er rider.

    I’ve got my Shimano AM45’s on ready for the ride home. For some reason this means I am a “spacker” in the eyes of my colleagues. I wouldn’t class them as high fashion but are they that bad???

    They do look like they should have calipers fitted

    You could walk into a crowded pub/restraunt in a pink lycra Tri-suit. I kid you not. Poor chap.

    Funnily enough it’s the guy with the expanding waist line at work who is the biggest piss taker when I’m in my gear. I completely ignore him, but am saving up the famous ‘Button it…’ line for a packed office.

    They do have a touch of the orthopaedic granny shoe about them.

    Hmmm.. They are a rather challenging footwear.

    Ignore them, and take it as banter, get it all day, one day they will realize it’s lycra not spandex, best laugh is I’m nice and slim and they all have bellys hung over their belts, one day a get well soon card apres heartattack will be theirs 😈

    Stop licking that window, grab your crayons and shout wheee all the way home. You’re just beautiful the way you are.

    Nice and slim? Beanpole with no shoulders more like. And a little pot belly. 🙂

    very little cycling attire looks good IMHO so its function over fashion

    I would challenge their choice of insult but taking the piss is fine.

    I rode home in AM41’s knee length Seal Skinz and 3/4 Semi Drys so you have a long way to go yet. My commute is off road and pretty muddy so I do have an excuse but luckily I don’t run into many people and give it another couple of weeks and at least it’ll be dark on the way home.

    I used to get a few comments when I started rocking up in Lycra and proper disco slippers, most of ’em are not sure what to do when (depending on if I’m on the bike or not) I grab my arse/cock, bend in the reqd fashion and ask if they want to feel me.

    Thank for piping up Pook. I always value your appreciation of my slim physique.

    I had no idea what an AM45 looked like until I Googled. All I can say is……………what the blinking heck were Shimano thinking of 😯

    Only shoes I don’t get laughed at by my (non-cycling) colleagues are my old shimano ‘casual’ spd’s (grey/black, laces and single velcro strap). My boss thought my defrosters were rugby boots! (I really do not have the physique of a rugby player!)

    One day they’ll laugh so hard they’ll choke to death on their chips. That’ll learn ’em.
