I am now a true roadie...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I just bought my first pair of non-black bib shorts!

I won a pair of blue Assos FI-13 blue bibs on ebay....

Wait! won't the blue bibs clash with my red bike....What was I thinking!!!

Of course my butt isn't going to care!

make sure you've got a white saddle....you don't want unsightly black skid marks on your $$$$ knicks.

LOL!! I understand what you mean about the great debate to deviate from "boring" black bibs. As for me, I've got several sets of white (!) bibs, in addition to knock-off pro team kits in assorted colors. I won't buy another set of black bibs...

If something is worth doing, do it with some style...
