Alright...I am SO LOST! This is how I felt when I first go into cycling and started shopping for a bike. Cycling clothes has me totally lost. I've only biked in warm weather. Easy...cycling shorts...cycling short sleeve jersey...helmet...sun glasses...cycling shoes...ankle or short length socks. Good to go!
But cold weather stuff? OMG. Baselayers. What? And who's do I get? Cheap $20-$30 Giordana? Outrageous $170 Assos? For freaking baselayers?!?!?!?
And even long sleeve jerseys...seems like they have different weight/warmth for how cold you want to ride in. Once I pick a jersey...I wear my baselayer under it? Do I need to get some sort of jacket or vest?
What about bottom. Seems like the only option are long pant sleeve bib style. Right? Do you wear anything like long johns or something under it? Do you wear leg/knee warmers over them? Or are the tights/kickers warm enought by itself?
What about my Sidi Genius 6.6...won't the wind just rip through them? Do I have to get new shoes? And what socks?
Gloves? Any suggestions?
And finally...how about my head? Skull cap? Or a thing that covers my whole head, mouth, nose, ears?
I am so lost...
