There's something I just don't quite understand. Perhaps some of you can clarify.
Whenever I've gone to a bicycle shop to purchase a bicycle or related accessories (e.g. wind jackets, rain jackets, bike shoes, helmets, etc.), the items for sale usually come in a wide array of designs and colors that are visible and pleasing to the eye. However, I've noticed that some of the same bicycles and accessories that were painted quite differently - camouflage.
There are some good reasons for camouflage gear. The military and some government agencies use it for various purposes. Some different camouflage patterns have appeared as a new fashion. But for bicyclists? If you're trying to avoid being a "Fred" or some kind of dork, there are other colors one can wear. Might wearing camouflage be asking for trouble?
I just don't understand why that type of marketing strategy has been explored. I look forward to your replies.
P.S. *** NUT-JOBS NEED NOT REPLY.
