A question of style

Hi,
I have a grey bike. When I lose a few more pounds, I have a couple grey bike jerseys I got from Velo. I just got a pair of grey Bolle Parole sunglasses....... They call them silver, but they're grey. I don't mind looking like a bike geek; but I don't want to be the geek of geeks
My take is I like my bike, I like Velo jerseys in almost any color, and my sunglasses were on sale
So....have I discovered style, or contracted Alzheimers?

Sounds like Alzheimer's to me. Get yourself some yellow, blue, red, purple, green... Think about it, anything goes with gray.

Actually, if you like gray, wear it. If you want to avoid looking like a bike geek, don't put pocket protectors in your jersey pockets.

And by wearing bright colours you will be easy to find again if you do wander in an Alzheimer's-induced trance (and before anyone gets offended, the wandering off of Alzheimer's patients and their getting lost is a significant problem around nursing homes and for home-carers).

Seriously, I think someone on a bike list somewhere (BFs?) has a sig that says: Fashion is only for people who don't have a style of their own.

Grey is definitely better than black for biking!

Be careful riding past concrete retaining walls. A driver could get off with hitting you by saying you blended in...

Hi guys,
turns out that with the RX adapter, the Paroles rub against my face. Not good, now I'm looking at the Bolle Sydney. I am a bit worried about a grey jersey blending......
