Well I got my modified VelocitySquared and I love it It's got BikeE handlebars, and I am contemplating changing the 26x1.50 to a 700x32, like I have on my Novarra upright, because I still want the bent to be faster. But to the topic: I discovered my cycle shirt with the pockets on the back are not only useless, but the pocket seams irritate. And I am wondereing do I really need to wear the chamois? And gloves? What's functionable and fashionable? Finally, my bike is black, so I should I eschew brown accesories?
