Less dirt shows on them, less material for washing :P

But I'd rather wash the dirt out of my socks than my leg hair! :wink:

You have to wash leg hair out of your socks? What kind of simian are you?

Why do you say that? Seriously considering signing up today (they re-opened the entry form until 5pm)...only other ride on that day is the Beechworth Gran Fondo which is even more expensive and doesn't come with a jersey (could use another one!).

Hi my name is Mark and I have spent SIGNIFICANT amounts of time worrying about my sock length. (For the record I'm not all happy with my current length).

Please help me :shock:

Black for me. But the anklet cut is so low on them you can barely see at all!

I'm for any kit so long as its comfy.. though I do prefer matching my jersey/knicks most times - depends on if I've done my washing or not (undomesticated <30 male) :oops:

I wear nice BLACK business socks on my rides to/from work too :)

The only thing that gives raises my eyebrows and makes me tut-tut to myself is the occasional Australian Champions jersey I've seen folk wear about from time to time. Pro-tour team kit - go for your life - A team you support or liked back in the day is just like any other sportsfan - but the national champ's jersey is something that is earned, not bought from rebel sport.

My fave pair is Black, Low Ankle Cut. Ritchey ones :) So low, you can only just see the black.
