白いビブショーツ。何故なの?

white bibshorts

私は白いビブショーツを一度も持っていません。決してすべきではないとあなたに言われたので、私はしませんでした。 

しかし、なぜですか?

私は自分のやり方で投げられたすべてのルールに疑問を投げかけます。ほとんどの場合、ルールは非常に理にかなっています。しかし、場合によっては、(最初は)意味をなさないルールに遭遇し、それをテストする必要があるだけです。ベロミナティのルール#14は、ショーツはできるだけ黒くすべきであると明確に述べています。このルールは2020年には少し古くなっているように見えますが、特に2019年アムステルゴールドレースでマシューファンデルポエルがキットを選択したことを考えると、

Tighty Whities-勝者の選択?

MVDPの勝利を見た後、私は白いビブショーツのアイデアで売られました。彼がそれを揺することができるなら、私もそうすることができます。

私は私の製造業者に電話をかけ、彼に私にタイトなホワイティのペアを作るように頼みました。上品にするために、ロゴを上品なシルバーカラーで印刷してもらいました。これは、濡れると半透明になる白いビブショーツなので、標準のライクラよりも10%厚いライクラを使用しました。 長距離ビブショーツ.

私は特に厚いライクラを楽しんだわけではありませんでしたが、妻がそれほど厚くなければ家を出させてくれたのではないかと思います。

初めての乗車で緊張しました。たくさん汗をかく。シンガポールも途方もなく湿度が高いです。私の肌も深い茶色です。ホワイトビブショーツではまったく機能しないはずの要素の組み合わせ。

しかし...そうしました。

この画像は、深夜の60km走行後に撮影されました。ちょっとした道路の汚れは別として、それはうまく見えます!

この白いビブショーツはすぐに私のお気に入りのキットになりました。私はそれを私のワードローブの中で最も大きなジャージと組み合わせること、そしてドライバーが単に無視することができない道路上のオブジェクトであることを愛しています。太ももに上品なシルバーの「RW」ロゴがとても気に入っています。私の唯一の不満は、ビブショーツを少し圧縮しすぎる厚いライクラです。私はそれと一緒に暮らすことを学び、寛大な腰から体重を減らす動機になっています。

私は世界中に白いビブショーツ愛好家の小さなコミュニティーがあることを知っています。質の低い白いビブショーツのペアを密かに望んでいたとは言えず、サービスも提供も不十分なコミュニティ。

おそらく2020年後半に、私はこのコミュニティのためにThe BIBのホワイトバージョンを作成します。

 

あなたは白いビブショーツが好きで、もっと多くの会社がそれらを生産することを密かに望んでいますか?白いビブショーツはハードパスですか?これについてスペクトルの両側から聞いてみたいです。下にコメントを残してください!

Out of the 22 comments so far, here’s the breakdown :

YAY : 8
NAY : 9
NEUTRAL : 5

This white bibshort is a personal project and I made it for myself. I did put it out there to see what the fans make of it. While the response has been overwhelmingly “NAY”, there is a small and vocal group of “YAY” who’d probably really want to own a pair of these. You can expect this to be launched in a limited run for this niche audience.

A number of you have suggested breaking up the expanse of white with black stitching, stripes or patches of other colour. I disagree with this because it would be a cop-out on my part and represent a severe lack of commitment to making an eye-catching full white bibshort.

A few of you have asked about how these hold up to dirt. Only time will tell and I will have to put a lot more miles in less than favourable conditions to see how it will eventually look like. I will also rub chain grease on it and see if the grease streaks come off in the wash.

@JOHN, @GLEN : The cycling “Rules” are not laws and are not legally binding. As such, they can be broken. I completely agree with the both of you that these rules are representative of a certain viewpoint and I’d like to think the people who wrote them never meant them to be taken too seriously in the first place. Like all things in cycling, the rules are part and parcel of our collective culture and even though I choose to ignore most of them, I do enjoy having them as part of the overall culture (hope this makes sense).

@RYAN : I had a shopkeeper take that photo for me just to check if my posterior could be seen. I’ll update this blog with a front shot once the shorts are laundered.

Love them and white bibs in general. I would love a pair for the hot and humid summers in my part of the world. Of course, I also love your “not popular” KOM bibs, so what do I know?

John Putman %B%d、%Y

I’d wear white but not the way those look, something has got to break up the white avalanche on the lower back/above the butt area!! I had a pair years ago from LG I believe and they were great, all white except for the black stitching, broke it up nicely.

Ron %B%d、%Y

I had a pair of white non bib shorts that lasted for years and remained great looking (Northern California, no winter riding). They had black stripes down the outside of the legs and black piping, but I did like MvDP’s white kit better, I think.

Steve %B%d、%Y

Generally speaking, I think “The Rules” are a giant crock of feces intended to exclude people and give others an excuse to judge them. I would love to have “F—- the Rules” printed on one of the sleeveless jerseys I rock …

… that being said, wow those all-whites look really weird. I mean they are just a vast expanse of blindingly white material; MVDP’s shorts have team/sponsor logos to break them up, but those bibs are just eye-catching for all the wrong reasons.

Another thing to think about is that white tends to fade with washes and become a kind of weird, grimy-grayish white, over time. Maybe that’s a good thing, maybe that’s a bad thing, but if you’re buying tighty-whitey shorts, you probably dont’ want understated.

I can totally see a market for these (after all, I willingly wear sleeveless) but it wouldn’t be for me. Woof.

John %B%d、%Y

Never liked the idea arbitrary rules being enforced for no other reason than opinion. If you want to wear them, go right ahead! It doesn’t change the fact that I may smash you or I’ll get smashed by you on the local climb. Just go and enjoy riding bikes!!

Glenn %B%d、%Y

no way!
white lycra generally doesn’t last as long.
now i would be interested in a pair of black bibshorts with that thicker lycra.
(we don’t all have Singapore’s climate ;-) )

Darryl %B%d、%Y

H E C K Y E S i’d order and enjoy RW white bib shorts!

LD %B%d、%Y

NO! With great power comes great RESPONSIBLITY. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should … yikes.

Ryan %B%d、%Y

Hell I think they look great! I have over 40 pieces of kit and I don’t own any white ones… sign me up I’m always willing to give it a try… in summer 😂 no wet roads for me lol

Shan %B%d、%Y

No! Wouldn’t last 5 minutes on Yorkshire lanes. Last thing you need in horse poo up the back, you would get some strange looks, but might stop the close passes!

Richard %B%d、%Y

I come home with dirt/mud on my clothes after every road ride. I’m not sure hiw long white would stay white. On that extra thick lycra, maybe the more critical areas could get the thick layers and other areas get the normal stuff.

Chris Hereford %B%d、%Y

White head to toe!! Sign me up! It’s classy, clean, and unique!! Throw out the fear factor!! Sounds like a great ride in the fall. If you build them we will come!! Hell yeah!! Nothing but positive things to say!!

Mike %B%d、%Y

White Bibshorts? Nah, I will stay with the classic, plain, and always black. I never even get matching bibs with my jerseys, but hey, that’s just me. Now about those bibs with pockets…

Eugene %B%d、%Y

If they are such a “yes” why didn’t you face the camera in the photo? Just sayin… ;)

Ryan %B%d、%Y

Let me know when they are available!

Federico %B%d、%Y

White bibshorts? No NO NO!

Most of my riding is on the lanes of SE England, which are not well maintained. Given the inevitability of having to stop and remove my rear wheel to replace a tube at least once in any ride over 100km, and my unbreakable habit of then wiping my hands on my leg…. you get the picture.

Maybe if I was riding on indoor tracks, but never out on the roads.

Rob McIvor %B%d、%Y

Just no, Yuva!

Pete %B%d、%Y

Hell Yes I’ll wear white, top and bottom!!! And as soon as you make em, I’ll buy em… so hurry up please! As a fan of Mario Cipollini, there’s probably not too many styles I wouldn’t wear.
Thanks Yuva!

George Schroeder %B%d、%Y

I have a pair of bibs with a white crotch area. Only wear them when I am sure it will not rain! Ok on fit young guys.

Gary %B%d、%Y

Cycling in Singapore’s humidity…you also deserve a gold medal.
Shorts look cool, and for dry hot climates, perfect.

PadraigO %B%d、%Y

No, just no.
There is absolutely nothing positive to say about white shorts. Leave them to the Cippolini’s of this world.

David Bacon %B%d、%Y

Have u ride it post-thunderstorm? Easy to wash?
