Match the bike? Nope.

But socks match gloves, always.

And I'm not sorry.

I try to wear ALL of the colors, all at once. The brighter the better. Doesn't always happen because I have plenty of muted colors but when everything is clean and I'm feeling good...stand back!

I think Jerry Rice said it best, "Look good, feel good. Feel good, play good."

From gloves to socks, I coordinate my fit to achieve a cohesive look each time out. Sometimes flashy, sometimes subtle, but always sharp. There is no honor in dressing like a schlub. It screams fear of failure.
Pretty sure that was Deion Sanders. 😉🙃

On the road my kit will always match on some level (jersey, socks, helmet). On the trails, I try to just get a good combo. That said, one of the bikes has camo motif, and I do have some camo kit to wear...🙈

Some days my shirt, shorts, and socks will all be grey and I'll say "that's a lot of grey" before I ride my grey bike. Yesterday my red jersey matched my pack. I didn't ride any faster or slower, but my back is a bit sore today. I'll have to take better notes on which color combo performs the best.

EDIT: @fredcook we share the same join date. How about them apples...

My bike is black. my clothes always match my bike.

As for my clothes (meaning, my shorts/shirt), just about everything I own coordinates, so I can grab whatever doesn't smell and still look like I'm trying at least a little bit to look put-together. My gloves are their own thing. same with my socks. some are plain, some are flashy. Sometimes they coordinate. sometimes they don't. helmet is black, so again, it goes with everything.

Don't be so down on the cape. When I was younger and considerably leaner, I would sometimes ride with an Under Armor compression tank and a Club Ride snap-up. On hot days, I liked to pop all the snaps and ride with it as a cape! Silly and lame? Yes...Extraordinarily fun and oddly satisfying? Frack Yes!!
