I'm thinking of buying some cycling-specific gear for longer rides and semi-competitive events, but I think that most cycling specific gear makes people look like complete tool-bags. I want to get a jersey and a pair of shorts, and I want them to be relatively form-fitting, and I want the shorts to give crotchal protection. I want to avoid synthetic materials, and I DEFINATELY dont want logos from some ridiculous european bank or olive oil company.
i'm drawn to rivendell stuff, but it seems a bit less than sporty, and it is certainly quite expensive. anybody have any recommendations?
