    Ride with battered gear, but repair rips / tears etc ASAP in order (as you say) to maintain functionality and ensure longest possible lifespan.

    I know a few people who always wear pristine gear – and who replace at the first sign of scruffiness. They look great on it, and have the cash to do so. Even if I had the money, I have an astounding knack of making the sharpest gear (bike, business or casual) look scruffy, so I might as well carry on wearing stuff to the point of absolute failure!

    My favourite Howies base layer is darned multiple times over the past 8 years, my riding t shirts are well worn where they have been snagged and rubbed, my favourite bib shorts have ripped hole on thigh and stitching pulls but worse is arse is about worn through, My Altura Attack waterproof shorts are see through on the asre tape area and one pair of shoes has snags and cuts on (so I have invested in new winter pair)
    Just bought two new helmets as my others were well over four years old and have been crashed, bashed and no doubt UV degraded.
    So overall yes I do ride in some scragged kit but am fortunate to have been able to start to replace some of it….Apart from my favourite gloves that my good lady has just sewn back together….again. 🙂

    Yep plenty of my riding gear is holed/ripped/knackered.I spend my spare cash on my kids and at 43 being a fashion icon in spangly kit is way down the list of priorities.

    My ancient Endura Humvee 3/4s are ripped near the knees but I’ve seen the new model and the material doesn’t seem so robust so they’re soldiering on, gloves have holes in (not the designed) type, jackets have fraying seams etc etc etc

    I’m not big on buying bike clothing and try to spend as little as possible.

    I repaired the velcro cuff my old Endura Event jacket the other day with some no more nails 😀

    Most have more repairs than I can count, but are at the point of being at their most comfortable.

    Had the needle out tonight on a set of endura shorts

    Checking my gear before today’s ride and my shoes have different colour ratchet buckles,my baggies have numerous scars and the elbows/hip area on my favourite riding top have seen better days. Luckily my helmet is unmarked. I still wear the clothes as the damage does not affect function.
    Does anyone else ride with battered clothing or do you replace at the first sign of damage?
