Guys

 

I know that cycling goes hand in hand with the traditional black shorts. But why dont some shops sell some in different colors?

Like old Henry Ford said way back when " You can have it in any colour as long as it is black." Good advice then, good advice now. Black doesn't shine through, doesn't show dirt, makes you look slimmer, is stylish.....

The tradition for black shorts is that, in the event of a mechanical, the rider can wipe any greasiness onto his shorts and still look cool...
