You could wear those pants with the mirror eagle tee shirt ($350) and look pretty spiffy on a fixie.

I think that site is real, and not a spoof.

Over $1,000 for a pair of pants? To ride on a bike with? Some of the sizes are sold out?

Admit it, when you look at something like that a little wealth redistribution doesn't seem like such a bad idea, does it.

The way I look at it, if someone is fool enough to buy that, wealth distribution will happen automatically pretty soon.

Doesn't create a temporary variable that isn't used so you'll be able to fill up your shed faster. (Or, maybe make your wife faster. That's not good. Never mind.)

"Not available" is not the same as "sold out"

Not For Actual Bike Riders...

1. Our thighs and calves wouldn't fit inside
2. Light color would be splattered and stained in a day
3. We're too cheap, would rather spend excess $ on a clip-on eyeglass mirror

Reason it costs so much is that the product is 97% cotton. You could also pair it with this jacket.

Wow, somebody managed to combine EXPENSIVE with UGLY and IMPRACTICAL. Very innovative. Cotton is perhaps the worst material on the face of the earth for cycling, and they're white!

I agree with the comment about normal people not being able to fit their legs into them. The guy in the photo is clearly anorexic, my calves are bigger than that guy's thighs!
