Help! My middle name is [Al]fred. I had enough trouble w/ Mad Magazine's Alfred E. Newman when I was a pre-teen.

I guess I often dress like a Fred, with a big klunky Giro Xen helmet, a t-shirt, expedition shorts, and either BMX or mountain biking shoes. One of the club regulars looked quite surprised when I wore one of my few real jerseys a couple of weeks ago.

I have always believed that the saying, "the clothes make the man," is backward.
