Ok, so I been cycling for about a year and a half or so and something I noticed from the begining and it is just kept getting to me more and more. Why does it seem that everything related to cycling need to be about names and brands and how much you pay for things? Everything from jerseys to shorts, bike brands, components...everything. I have found plenty of things from Performance bike and Nashbar that work fine for me. Whenever I talk to people about things that I buy, they kind of give a look like I'm not good enough ride because I don't go all out and get everything Campy or buy $200 bibs/shorts. I seem to do just fine without $100 shorts and $75 jerseys (granted I don't race or anything). Oh well. I didn't mean to offend anyone by this, it has just been bugging me and I needed to get it off my chest. Since I just moved here, I don't know that many people in the area that ride and are into cycling that much. Comments/thoughts/concerns?????
