Someone made this. I’ll let the comments section pass judgement…but there it is. It exists.
From Bicycle Retailer:
Giant USA is targeting new, entry level bike consumers with a new campaign that includes lower retail prices on 30 models of bikes starting March 31.
The company is calling the campaign “Gateway to Adventure,” and said it will be more than just a short-term promotion.
“This is a long-range strategic change,” said John “JT” Thompson, Giant USA’s executive sales director in a statement Wednesday. “We’re making every effort possible to broaden the market and get more new consumers into our retailers’ stores.”
Chrome has been making knickers and shorts for a few seasons, and has now introduced their first full length pant, the Folsom. Made with water and stain resistant 2-way stretch Schoeller fabric the pants are made for riding throughout changing conditions while still being comfortable and passable off the bike. Double layer crotch and flat seams make it long wearing, with a reflective patch and u-lock holder on the back. Five pockets give you a place for hands and a wallet, and a place for a mini u-lock as the built in holster fits full sized versions only. Available for $160 in 28″ to 36″ men’s sizes.
Here’s a good idea for cold weather cycling—really long socks! Or really tall, if you will. The ski industry has been hip to this for years, and a few wise and fashion-forward bike brands have offered them, but I contend there’s still not enough. At 18″ tall, Zoic’s Really Long Sock adds warmth and versatility to your winter gear selection. They’re especially good for days when the weather might shift, as you can push them down the same way you do with arm warmers.
These socks are made from 70% polyester, 12% nylon and 18% spandex. They come in S/M or L/XL and retail for $15. Check out www.zoic.com
