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

+1. Those are pretty sexy.



These are pretty hideous. You'd have to pay me to wear them.

I'd say that given they are an "XYZ Champion" sort of thing (like yellow jerseys), the people who have honestly earned them are being paid to wear them. As for the ones in local bike shops, what is it with people wanting to wear reproduction sports stuff they didn't earn? I don't have a problem with someone wearing the same model (shape) shoe, but why the color pattern?
