Doesn't everyone else do this when looking for that hole in their tubeless tyre? It's tough with water restrictions these days.

My main concern was that those Jungfrau's mothers had warned them about the sort of men who wore Tridents across the front of their Speedo lollybags ;)

Chic /ˈʃiːk/, meaning "stylish" or "smart", is an element of fashion

When it comes to road racing garb, the clothing may hold a whole lot of classic value to us as enthusiasts, and be eminently suited to the task of racing long distances at speed, but I don't think by any measure it meets the definition above of "stylish" or "fashion" :wink:

(Speaking as one who often wears such clothing)

I think the difference is whether the style is general fashion or fashion that a passionate cyclist appreciates.

As I appreciate 'the classics' it could suit to have a new thread with classic cycling photos.

Gino Bartali and Fausto Coppi - road cycling jerseys took many styles, including collars and the front pockets. This was probably in the early 50s.

This was taken at the top of Alp d'Huez.

And I watched these men ride their vintage bikes up Mont Ventoux.

Ride that up that and it's proof you have big nuts!
...whatever the road rules, self-preservation is the absolute priority for a cyclist when mixing it with motorised traffic.
