90s Bicycle Fashion: I love oxymorons.

Awesome is right.

Sometimes I find myself reading gossip websites.  There.  I said it.  Often it is simply to waste time, yet now and then something pertinent will jump out at me.  I was therefore amused and confused to read in OK! magazine that 90s cycling “fashion” is taking hold among Hollywood tweens.  Specifically, the cycling short is creeping from the closets of Disney stars and making it onto runways.

As someone who dislikes cycling shorts (I wear them under normal shorts only when touring, and have conditioned my unprotected taint to withstand over 80kms on a Brooks saddle), I can’t for the life of me understand what is going on.  Is this ironic? Sincere? Does anyone know the difference any more?  I was reminded of a great post over at Cycling Inquisition about 90s cycling fashion’s inevitable rebirth.

God I wish he was wrong.
