Too bad Swobo is no more.

I have a pair of Swobo wool socks that were my favorite pair until I snagged one on a barbed-wire fence and tore a hole in it .

Never did plunk down the cash for one of their Jerseys. Too late now.
Got my eye on one of those Surly jerseys though...

I have a pair of smartwool cycling socks that I'm actually sorta disappointed in. The cuffs are all stretched out and they don't fit snugly any more. This is after less than a year of wear.

My girlfriend's a hiker and toasts Smartwools in about 3 to 4 months. I have Thorlos that have lasted longer than her oldest pair of Smartwools.

From what I understand, they used to be pretty good, but it seems the quality has gone downhill since.

I'm still searching for a sock that I like...

so you ARE on that planning committee. i am on the one to make a rusty, fixed gear, premade bike with our logo on it. your team needs to hurry up as Abercrombie & Fitch is almost done with their urban/distressed messenger line.

I've got a bunch of smartwool socks, some of which are two years old, and I wear them a lot. Only now am I starting to get holes.

You win some you loose some.

Just like taking a tinkle, sometimes you shake it dry, sometimes a drop gets loose.

Really, does it matter?

Only if the stain shows... only if it shows.


Anywhoo.. I was in love with the Rivendale wool jersey until I saw it cost 140 dollars. Jesus Christ on a *******, 140 bucks? YOUCH!!!

165 knows of a guy on Ebay who sells wool jersey's cheap. Perhaps if you bribe him with libations, he'll pony up the name..

Yeah, I wouldn't buy the Riv jersey. But the LS wool T's aren't badly priced.

Well i could do that, and if i had any shame i would. But perhaps someone will read this thread and spot my little request and say, wow, i have one of those rusting in my garage.

I don't really think thats going to happen so i would rather not waste a whole thread for it.

BTW, William, i was reading ur blog and u are a very honest writer, i enjoyed it.

Now where have i gone with this thread? All over the damn place, that's where!

And the thing is, ever listen to Uriah heap? Old band, the lyrics to a song, stealin?

I was stealin when i should have been buying. I look back on my life now and wish i had been buying more, stealing less. Or Talking heads, once in a lifetime song about, well, once in a lifetime, that's how the days go by, like water going underground.

OK, im rambling now.

Ok, I guess that means I don't have to dig around in my garage this weekend.

Its been a while and I'd have to look at it too see what the specs are, but I think I have one. Send me a PM, don't hold your breath and I'll go look.
