Riding uniforms and outfits
« on: May 18, 2007, 06:12:43 PM »
Thinking about going with a full uniform for riding. Matching socks, pants and jersey. Custom design with team name  and other still to be determined lingo. Flying the colors of 813 Racing !!! Style guy would be proud. The Idster is arranging  the transaction and details still need to be hammered out.  Looking at the Pants FactorE is considering is putting pressure on all of us to represent in style!  ;D

Anyone notice a difference in riding when wearing form fitted outfits? All the road riding has me wanting to be as aerodynamic as possible.  :)


Moderator: feel free to move this to bike talk section if appropiate. I couldn't decide what it should be in.

wearing bibs helps in getting on and off the saddle smoothly without getting hung up at all.  with baggies i feel a little less conncted to the saddle as well

Whassup FactorE ! I have had a couple of close calls getting  the baggies hung up and almost causing me to crash. I'm looking for the style points!    ;D   ;D   :D

I've always rode with baggies. The few times I've tried with just spandex I kept getting caught on the seat, both directions. I'm pretty fat, so maybe that has alot to do with it. ;D
