    Hope I'm telling you, its all about the Socks!

    *Disclaimer, I REALLY NEED SOCKS! This thread is about socks. Help me get to 100 replies so Francois will give me and the Mrs's socks.

    I was in a bike shop recently, picking up some parts. Since everything was on sale, I figured I'd go shop for socks, since it's that time of year.

    Sadly, the shop was sold out of the socks I wanted.

    Fast forward to today. Someone re-posts the following video, and it dawned on me. Like a bolt of lightening to my noggin! I get it now.

    IT'S ALL ABOUT THE SOCKS!

    Seriously, look at their feet, and their actions, and tell me, really tell me, that they don't resemble quite a few of us, post ride, arguing over the merits of socks. (For an even better image, think it's a couple of 27-40yr/olds, both have beer bottles in hand.) Watch the video and tell me I am wrong.

    my favorite color is purple
    Rigid SS 29er
    Fat Lefty
    29+

    SS cyclocross
    all steel

    "Fully rigid" isn't a thing.

    I thought the thread title said "it's all about the sucks". If it weren't for the unicorn farting socks I would have just wasted 20 seconds of my life. 92...

    My thread was one of the first to hit 100 posts after this challenge was originally created and these are the socks I received. Be careful what you wish for.

    Yep! Found them for $5 at the Performance Bike discount bin. I guess I was the only one who thought they were cool at the time!

    Good because it's my firm belief my socks are holey. Thus this thread. SWIDT?

    Shameless thread bump?

    Speaking of RoadBikeReview and socks, anyone else seen this? Let me know if anyone wants one and I'll point them in the right direction. Not sure why AmiAmi doesn't have socks though.
