Buy once, cry once

It turns out that bike clothing is another buy once, cry once item. Generic $50 bike store and manufacturer jerseys and chamois suck. Mid-level ($100 on sale) are somewhat better. But the $200 on sale stuff is the shit. Zippers that work with one hand. Padding that doesn’t roll up and cause sores. Pockets that you can reach without twisting your arm off. Actually cool and not horribly sweaty and sticky (looking at you, Famous University Bike Club G. Hincapie brand). I should have just gotten Assos in the first place, and I wouldn’t have all the other crap in the drawer that I don’t want to wear.

Same with bikes, same with cameras, etc.
