yeah! now *thats* clothing to ride your bike on in *style*! take that lycra!

man, the average cyclist from the 30s-50s has more style in their socks than anyone in the prop peloton does these days...

anyone know where to find knee-length argyle socks in wool? all the golf shops seem to have is cotton/poly blends. sheesh! :)
