I'll admit I had my doubts, Pugsley. In a sport that cherishes sleek and thin, you were excessive and obese. You wore the purple remnants of somebody's bad '90s ecstasy trip, and even when they finally painted you gray, I could still see your skewed fork and crooked frame and offset rims — purposeful deformations just to make room for all that excess fat. But once I finally took the plunge, I was amazed at your strength and grace. You plowed over boulders like they weren't even there, then floated atop sand like you weighed an ounce. When the winter finally came, with our powder-blasting downhill rides and soft trail traverses, I knew it was love.

It's true what they say, Pugsley: Once you've had fat, you can't ever go back.

So what are these "skin suits" y'all are on about?

I've got my tri shorts that are bike shorts with a thinner chamois so

The tri singlet is basically a sleeveless bike jersey so

Wetsuit is, well, a wetsuit. Again,

Just what kind of monkey business are y'all into???

They look better on wimmens Sorta not work safe hence the link

Cipolini looks all right in one

Nah, this morning in the June Outside.



About them skinsuits... I'm not super hip in the tri world, but I don't think I've seen too many of those, if any. TTs, for sure, but I think it would suck running in one and would for sure suck trying to transition out of one.

And the Spiderman d00d? Soooo many faulty branches in that decision tree.

Tri doods do their thing in tri-suits, not skinsuits. Skinsuits are for TTs, track, and cyclocross. Things where you race then yer done.

More or less said that. That's why I wasn't connecting skinsuits to triathlon. They got nuthin to do with each other.


I think Askel and skibum are just shy.

Wrap 'em up lads and show 'em off!

Yeah, I heard about what happened to Old Webs; That was my favorite trail there, too. Still, there's plenty of other good stuff to warrant the drive.

And no matter what, you're still pretty much stuck with large marges and endomorphs. .
