This is regardless of what kit they are wearing, what team kit they ride with, the bike they are riding, where they are riding, or any other factor of judgement from a distance that does not include riding behaviour.
I agree with this in principle
However, I did once see a guy walk into a cycling shop wearing a pink Rapha cycling cap with upturned brim... who had driven to the store. Until I'm proved wrong I'm going to carry on assuming this guy was a bit of a tit.
I can agree there may be a stereotype
But the same can be said for nice expensive road bikes. Especially brands like specialized where it seems people walk in and buy the most expensive bike without having any idea what they bought.
The posers or whatever you want to call them will always buy the most expensive stuff since they think it will make them look or ride better.
I am nota Fanboy, but after purchasing my first rapha gear. I am hooked, it feels like nothing else I have worn and I love the simple looks.
It's not for everyone and not cheap. They do offer some things to offset the cost like their return policy and other things. If you buy in a bundle or wait for a sale it's reasonably priced for the level of quality you get
