I was sitting around the house yesterday, watching the tour, wearing my Lance jersey from the first tour win, and i slipped out on the street on the fixie to grab a pack of smokes. As soon as i hit the street, i remembered what i was wearing and was instantly repulsed by myself.
Which leads me to the question; Why do we hate the spandex so much? aren't many of us hiding a chamois under our cutoff deisels? Why am I ashamed of myself in a cycling jersey? Too much self loathing makes jack a crazy boy.
I'm sure many of you will say that most of us don't, its only the posengers looking down on the carbon roadies...but there's a large anti-lycra faction out there, as expressed in other threads. And i'm sure whenever they see a chrome or baileys bag, the roadies laugh as well. I'm just trying to understand the culture here.
