I don’t insist on my jersey matching my bike at all times, though I will admit to having more than one orange jersey that matches my black Giant with the orange and white accents. But I do like to ride in colors that I like. Call me shallow and vain.
But why do so many women’s jersies (jerseys?) come only in pastels, especially pink? For that matter why do so many WSD bikes come in equally putrid (to me) pastels?
What has gotten me onto this particular rant? One of my favorite bike blogs:
Fatty has posted pics of his ’08 TwinSix jersey. The women’s only comes in the pink.
Of course, many companies are guilty of the pastel only bit. Or at least mostly pastel. Some are beginning to offer other stuff.
And next time you are in your LBS that carries WSD bikes, go take a look. Looks like a baby nursery.
I bet babies don’t even like those colors.
