I just don't get why, with all that effort to look pro, the water bottle is a re-used Gatorade bottle and the legs, obviously.


You're assuming the reason he's bought what he's bought is to look pro. He may just want the best performing bike he can get, and I don't think anyone who posts here is in a position to give him a hard time for that. The only thing you could say for sure he's bought for the look are the bibs and helmet.

The bottle's definitely wierd, but leg shaving does nothing except gain you acceptance from people who think you should shave your legs to be accepted into the clan of roadie.

I didn't create the culture of it, but after I gave in and started shaving mine (when I started racing) it helped stop putting people offside before they met me. Ala this thread.

First impressions last.

It also means getting a massage is a lot easier. As is applying and removing tape and dressings. There are practical applications.


As for his bottle, could it be that it was all he was handed at the feed zone - give he was apparently off the front, solo, for a 240km race? Makes sense to me.


My biggest concern are the socks and the Rock Racing knicks...

You misunderstood me, it was a 32 mile race. He was rocking the whole time as if he was Jens Voigt in the last 3k of 240


No feed zone. He started with that bottle. My guess is he's been a bike enthusiast for awhile and decided recently to race. At least he also decided to have a little panache.

From the State Open TT on the weekend.

Caught my 1 and 2 minute man, still only good enough for 2nd place.

First race/second ride on my new Trinity, it's incredibly impressive. Position let me hold more power than my old TT bike and have nearly a 1 minute turn around in time gaps to two guys who beat me last month.

Really looking forward to dialling the position in over the coming months. Prep for Nationals begins now :twisted:
