I think pink is best for offwidths, and brown is best for runouts

It's interesting that so many people's main objection to cyclists is the wearing of Lycra.

Personally I hate it when climbers wear climbing shoes or runners wearing running shoes, surfers wearing wetsuits etc etc

I don't mind when they wear lycra on a bike. It's when they walk up to my desk and my face is at their crotch level that I object. I don't need to look at your flyeye/camel toe.

Aha! I've outed another lycra wearer. :P

Take your point, that was just a snide comment - I'm sure you look very fetching in lycra. Actually I have no problem with cyclists in lycra per se - but do have a problem with the whole hyper-fashionable cycling trend, with all its attendant "rules" - they are a bigger bunch of posers than even... umm... boulderers? And when you get into the "fixie" riders with their hipster outfits and "ironic" retro heirdos, I'm tempted to car-door them just on principle. (When I'm not riding my $4000 carbon framed downhill machine into Surry Hills for a short black wearing my cargo shorts and muscle T, of course).

I'm impressed that it's so stylised and regulated
I know we are c--kpounders in climbing, but it's pretty low key compared to this.
And always remind yourself of rule V

fetching isn't the word on the tip of most people's tongues when they see me in lycra
