Looks pretty good to me...
I must hang around with the fun police too much.
Is black a good colour for dull rainy weather?
How it would stretch and fit would be something I would want to know before I bought one.
if the crutch wears out because of contact with the saddle do you throw the whole lot out?
Hate to say it but even day-glo, neon bright, blinding wear does not make a driver see a cyclist.
Black is the new white - just assume they are going to crash into you - much safer that way ;-)
+1 so true....sadly so true.....if they do see you they abuse you.....
Well if thats the approach you wanna take with your life "oh, well they will only just yell at me if im wearing bright colours" or "at least you can assume they are going to crash into you" pffft, go hang yourself its an easier suicide than putting drivers under so much blimen stress. childish!
Err, I actually don't get your point? And below you you seem to be arguing against overly bright cycling wear.
If you think it is dumb to assume motorists are not seeing you and may well crash into you then by all means go about your ways.
Live long and prosper.
The only time I have not ridden in black this year and had something bright on and had my rear lights on and I got hit by a car. Therefore im sticking to going the full Johnny Cash man In black from now on
Dstone, unfortunately Steven Orr can relate to that. He also had very bright lights on during the day, when a 4WD came out from a side street and hit Steve who was in a bike lane.
The trick is not to have blaring lights, as even in a car at night Highbeams can be a major contributor of crashes, as it reduces vision to other motorists. To be seen or not be seen, this is the question. Within reason, cmon all you UFOs(unidentified FLuroscent objects) out there, keep the brightness down.
Look up FrogToggs. Not super durable but really breathable!!, windproof, light and $50-60 a set. Also come in High Vis & reflective colors other than Black...
Another interesting product from Frogg Toggs at http://www.froggtoggsraingear.com/ChillyPads.shtm
The Frogg Toggs Chilly Pad provides an innovative way to cool down while enduring outdoor heat and/or high levels of physical activity. Perfect for anyone engaged in sports or work, the Chilly Pad is made from a new hyper-evaporative material that retains water while remaining dry to the touch. When wet, the towel becomes considerably cooler that the outside air, thereby providing cooling relief to the user. When it stops cooling (between 1-4 hours depending on conditions), you simply re-wet the towel in hot or cold water and wring it out. Within minutes it is cool again. It is also machine washable. One Size: 27" x 17".
