I lurk a number of different forums and I have noticed that a lot of people are concerned about looking "cool" while riding. I just don't understand that part of the sport/addiction/hobby at all. I would think that the effects of not carrying around a spare tire around your waist or at least working at removing one (my case), would be all the "cool" that is needed to worry.
I would think that possibly looking "uncool" for an hour or two a day while riding is greatly off-set by the "cool" fitter look that you are or will be displaying.
But then again, my concept of cool is probably a bit outdated.
Help me understand the "COOL" thing.
