    Cycling fashion

    I've been trying to find good deals online for cycling related clothing. Not spandex or gear of that kind. I usually wear Dickies rolled up with a tshirt. Maybe you know where to get cool tshirts or some 3/4 length pants, wool would be cool. Thanks in advance!

    thrift store my friend.

    Ever since I started cycling ive began looking like an reckloose (sp?). I now refuse to ride in jeans...it just tears them up way too much. My girl found a pair of wool pants at a thrift store for a $1...couldnt be happier.

    not quite sure why people on bikes are concerned w/ nice clothes...your going to mess them up, and your not going to get any more props from girls for the gear.

    From John Prolly's blog:

    "Left Side:

    Cheeky hat made of imitation denim with wannabe sponsor logo
    Insect-resistant and stylish "nose-bike" (slang for sunglasses)
    Model: Mandy *****hole
    Alternative: Eyepatch or "wood-eye" (like the eye in a plank of wood)
    Weight-optimizied acceleration baby-beard
    Model: booger- and snot-retardant "respect beam" (I think this is more unusual slang for mustache)
    Alternative: None, really. Ah, well, maybe black sharpie.
    Nitto NJS handlebars & stem
    (limited edition anodized = powerful penis enlargement)
    NJS-stamped track components generally increase the style and standing of fixie-pilots and will give your rivals even worse penis envy and make them salivate uncontrollably.
    Alternative: Forget it, kid.
    Tri- or Aerospoke front wheel
    Most important is that it is made of plastic and is usable (I could be wrong if Platik isn't a typo for Plastik)
    It doesn't make sense, but hipsters don't give a ****.
    Trispokes and Aerospokes ride steady. End of story. ("ride steady" is a guess)
    Alternative: Preferably a colored deep-V
    Model: (no idea here) Accelerator, Scumpagnalo Pasta or Clammy Nippleator.
    Funny stickers, postage stamps or pornographic images emphasizing urban appearance and uglification (theft deterrence), as well as the personalization of your fixie.

    Right side:

    Grandpa's stuffy flannel shirt from storage
    Model: Desert Fox. Warms and protects the urban fixer from incipient semi-sunshine and spy attacks (?) from crazed freewheelers.
    No mess bag, no credibility.
    Fixie-pilots use the mess bag to distinguish themselves from the masses of ordinary bike riders.
    Model: USA (Balkan model, if need be) (maybe)
    Ghetto blaster casually balanced on the arm
    Music: Punk, Oi or Ramones
    Anything else would not be plausible.
    Alternative: Riding no-handed with a turntable in each hand.
    Bunch of keys dangling flirtatiously from a belt-loop.
    Spares the dope in pants pockets and heralds the sweaty pilot precociously.
    Cloth pants Model: Dixie ShootMeDead in doodoo-brown.
    In a pinch: BiteMeBlue, hand-shortened.
    Original Japanese NJS Keirin frame.
    The holy grail of every fixie-pilot.
    Spoke cards. Imperative.
    Spoke cards are the poser's license plate.
    The more license plates, the more... something.
    Track pedals with double straps.
    Double straps, double acceleration.
    Battle scars. Boosts urban credibility.
    Cloth sneakers with soft-as-**** rubber soles.
    Reason: see Trispokes.
    No bar tape. Bar tape is gay.
    Alternative: Bar tape.
    Socks are also gay."

    A pair of scissors will net you some 3/4 length pants. Plus you get two free shop rags.

    BTW, my wife calls them "capris"

    If you ever ride you bike hard enough to break a sweat you might want to take a look at the Twin Six stuff. I like it a lot. They also do nice t-shirts if you're determined not to wear anything functional.

    i don't understand, aside from possible crotch holes after months and months of every day wear on pants how are clothes messed up by riding bikes?

    The right leg on every pair of long pants I own has a grease stain on the inside ankle, and most of them are a bit chewed up around the right cuff. All my manpris started life as a pair of long pants with a chewed right cuff. Other than that biking is no harder on my clothes than anything else.

    A recluse is someone who isn't seen publicly. I don't think that's the word you were looking for.

    Anyway, it's hilarious that people are looking at t-shirts (yeah, where do you get those) and wool pants as cycling wear.

    If you're riding fixed and letting your pant legs anywhere near your chain on a moving bicycle, you may want to invest in some hospital gowns.

    I've got 3 geared and one fixed bike. Guess I've been riding fixed for 3 years, and never crashed due to a pantleg snag. I tink people here tend to overestimate what happens when a pantleg gets snagged by the chain. Generally it's a little tug and some punctured fabric. I'm more scared of ice and gravel than I am of pant legs. Also sholaces can be a *****, but they will break long before they crash you. I threw a chain once though on a long fast downhill left two skidmarks. the one on the pavement was 60 feet long. the only thing damaged though was the chain which left little peices of itself strewn along the road, and put a couple of scratches in my paint.

    Do you actually know of anyone who was hospitalized due to a pantleg snag, or are you just perpetuating the urban legend that pant legs can kill, and manpris save lives?

    Maybe it's time for the Mythbusters episode where Adam rides a track bike around Hellyer Park wearing bell bottoms.

    not true for me. i had a loose shoelace get caught up and instead of breaking it just tightly wound itself at warp speed forcing me off the bike if i didn't want to loose all circulation in my foot.

    i've had no problems with pants legs though - usually they just snag a little and tear.
