    I am lucky, I have a bike swag pusher that feeds my addiction - 40% off of name brand stuff. Last week he got me some bike socks, knee warmers and what is near and dear to so many 50+'ers here, Bibs - in this case bib-knickers. My first Bibs. I was looking for something that would work better between 50 and 60 degrees. This morning it was 60, and the bib-knickers were just right. The knicker part kept my legs warm and the bib part kept my lower back warm. I think they may go as low as 45 degrees. I don't have a problem with shorts riding down so I really never thought about bibs - don't think I'll buy bib-shorts, but the bib-knickers are perfect. The socks were nice as well, the knee warmers will be used on a long ride when it starts out cool and warms up - then I'll take them off. Last year I bought arm warmers and I use them quite a bit.

    Lets see - I'm still missing my:
    50+ Jersey
    Sidi shoes
    Hand built wheels
    Wool Socks
    B17 saddle

    Maybe one day I'll fit in - at least today I am one step closer...

    mmm...wool socks - the only way to go
    Lightweight for summer, heavier for cool weather.

    50+ jersey - I like solid colour, no writing, no pattern
    Sidi shoes - lots of good shoes out there
    Hand-built wheels - meh, my wheels are light and strong and serve me well
    B17 - not bl**dy likely.

    But, wool socks...mmmmmm.

    Well cyclinfool,

    Here in 50+ you fit in already. You don't need all that fancy clothing and trick equipment for your bike.

    Okay, well, having said that, yeah . . . wool socks rock, bib shorts you will love too, SIDI shoes are the best I've tried, B17 maybe (real individual thing, saddles are) and while I have lots of wheels I've built myself, factory built wheels are really very good these days. And I do like my 50+ jersey!

    Only have one pair of cycling shorts now- the rest are all Bibs and that includes the Knickers. The knickers only come out in the winter and work down to freezing in dry weather. If its that cold and wet- then on go the tights.(Bibs of course)
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
