White socks

Not the Chicago baseball team, the White Sox. No, rather, I was just musing about why I would even bother to buy white bicycling socks, when I know this is going to happen:


After today’s ride. Maybe some Stain Stick will take care of the problem. Maybe more care around the bike will eliminate the problem altogether.

    For me, black is the new white. And if you think it’s bad with socks, *NEVER* buy bib shorts with any amount of white in them. One flat, and you’ll have grease all over them.

    You know, when I started biking, I thought all bike shorts were black for that reason. I was surprised to see that shorts are available in colors other than black. I know I’ll never wear them.

    I own one pair of white socks…they lasted one day out at Walnut Creek before they were pretty much destroyed. I mean functionally they still work as socks but they’ll never be “white” again! I use them for night rides…but any other time I wear black.
