Jesus wept: Roadie and colour co-ordination
The Etxeondo Dicolor’s bib shorts look a bargain at 45. I guess the price makes up for the ‘colour’.
My first proper shorts (apart from the Endura Singletrack inserts shorts I’m currently riding on my road bike).
Grips, cages, lid and jacket so far..it’s a slippy slope mate.
Erm, (theres no easy way to say this…)
I’ve also got this fitted
Although I do have black tape, black bars all kit black.

light blue lycra shorts would be acceptable is if you are contractually obliged to wear them by your proteam sponsor.
or they were ridiculously cheap, £45 isn’t cheap enough IMO.
slippery slope indeed, brown saddle was a bad move – now even I’m thinking you need to get brown tape. Of course a better idea would be sticking a black saddle back on and ignoring all colour co-ordination in future and just ride the ruddy thing.Posted 3 years agograhamgMember
Sorry, but you need to go further – helmet needs to be white with matching white shoes with the blue outfit I reckon. I think anything but black shorts are wrong, even from a colour matching perspective, black leaves black helmet/shoe/sock option even with light colours.Posted 3 years ago
Anyone who knows me can testify that I have zero colour co-ordination.
Since buying a road bike I’ve realised something….
So my bike is a sort of baby blue
Then this weekend at the Tour stall I tried to buy a Yorkshire tour shirt in yellow. They only had blue so I thought **** I need something…they only had this
Cheap on Merlin, I wanted black. They only had these

Sweet Lord Beefy, did you have that image on hand just for such a thread? 😯
I think I saw a few guys aiming for that crown yesterday ahead of Le tour in Cambridge village, if you are a little rounder in the middle, do you need to demonstrate it with Lycra?
Hora, stick with the blue, start on the Halgfos (or whatever their name is) monochrome range 🙂Posted 3 years ago

Sheffield on Sunday had some of the most shocking examples of the ‘burst black pudding’ look I’ve ever seen. More oddly mis-shaped man vegetables squashed into too-tight lycra than you could shake a cattle prod at!
Clearly a lot of roadies don’t possess either mirrors, or a partner who doesn’t have the honesty to point at them and dissolve into mocking hysterics 😯Posted 3 years ago
