Since I've been cycling a bit more these days, I'm in need of new gear. My circa 2001 things are wearing thin, I ain't gettin the needed support, and stuff's about to flop out. It's been a long time since I've been in the market for cycling shorts. Back in the day, we were gay enough because we rode in spandex shorts. Shaved legs and tights were bad enough. Now they've completely emasculated us and stripped us of every last shred of dignity by making it acceptable for dudes to wear bibs. Strapy meshy suspenders and all. Next thing you know we'll be wearing Aerodynamic Racing Manzeers and Bros. As I investigate purchasing $200 new shorts, it's become apparent that if you're a serious roadie you're now expected to rock the bibs. Like it's cool and shit. Fuck that. I'm staying old school. Spandex short shorts for life, BITCHES!
