Full Team Kit *kers

I really dont understand why anyone would get worked up over what someone else is wearing :wacko:

I used to wear full kit, Z Peugeot, Cafe de Colombia, Fagor, KAS.... I was about 16 at the time but my, I enjoyed feeling like I was Millar on a solo breakaway in the Pyrenees when in fact I was a Mancunian breaking away from nobody in the High Peak near Buxton.

I don't wear team kit anymore as I think I'd look like a fat w*nker, but I won't judge someone who does. Good luck to them!

Hey, @matticus instead of telling us all the folks you don't like, how about telling us about the ones you do?
To be fair to @matticus he's made a post making fun of this "rule".

But you make a good point. Cycling can be very tribal and intensely negative. Some people care intensely that other people are "doing it wrong".

Case in point recently. Some mag or website or other had done a piece on audaxing and had posted a link on twitter. Someone had replied with what they liked about audaxing which was basically just "No stravaw*nkers" Nothing positive to say about audaxing at all. Just an opportunity to complain about people that he saw as "doing it wrong".

I've had people making comments behind my back for wearing the 'wrong' T-shirt at a gig. Much the same…I don't get people wearing merch for bands they don't even know, but I've got better things to do with my life than harangue them about it.

I don't see the problem. It's not like he was wearing a championship jersey he hadn't won. Even the Velominati doesn't forbid it, only questions it:

RULE 17:
Wearing team kit is also questionable if you’re not paid to wear it. If you must fly the colours of Pro teams, all garments should match perfectly, i.e no Mapei jersey with Kelme shorts and Telekom socks.

Rule 17a (unwritten):
Under no circumstances should one wear AG2R shorts, unless one is expecting an uncontrollable bout of gastric distress

Whoever thought blue and poo-brown was a winning combination?

The Velominati rules are just an elaborate troll, as far as I can tell.
