Today it was +50 degrees and the roadies were on the MUP with tights, booties, full jackets and balaklavas. It was funny.
As opposed to denim testicle huggers, a boutique cotton hoodie with a fixie logo, and flashy sneakers?
Some roadies seem prone to going waaaaay overkill on that stuff but they might have started their rides when it was still in the 30s.
Wait, were the denim tescticle hugger kids outriding me? Or was it the spandex testicle hugger kids?
the "roadies" were riding farther than the levis 511s.
I ride baggy cut-off dickies.
Depends on the circumstances.
Jeans feel comfortable walking around, but they feel crappy on the bike.
Anyone ever have trouble digging a phone outta the denim testicle huggers whilst riding their hipster chariot?
%^cking things suck.
Yeah, those dudes have no idea what's going on.
Next time race 'em and show 'em what's up. Let us know how it goes.
i saw a kid today in lycra and a bib who couldn't have been older than eight. it was awesome.

I dropped a roadie going down hill and uphill while eating a bag of chips, all I heard was gears clicking trying to catch up.
I'm waiting for the day when all you fixsters are middle-aged brahs rocking all carbon fixie whips with your forty-year old guts hanging over 300 dollar denim testicle huggers struggling up a hill on 40 by 19 gearing on riser bars whilst some 14 year old on retro spandex is kicking your ass and laughing at you on his vintage 10 speed nishiki with genuine steel rims.
Oh what a beautiful day that will be!
Hehehee, I know a few riders in PHX dress like that for 50 degrees. 50 degrees for them is like 30 degrees for me...
1980ish Free Spirit Sunbird fixed * 1996 Mongoose IBOC Zero-G * 1995ish Park Pre Pro 825 * 1997 KHS Comp * 1990-ish Scapin * Lemond Buenos Aires Triple
^ co-signed. around mid 50's, i can start to think about dressing as if it was the middle of the summer.
Maybe the were up on the crest! I'll bet it was cold up there...
But, at 50, they should have started to peel som of that stuff off...
By the time they get down in the valley, they will be nice and comfy in spandex and jerseys...
