Trashycat Paw Print Armwarmers

I was a bit sceptical at first when I clicked into the TrashyCat site. The models posing a la Littlewoods catalogue and the pink and white background did not favour well. However, when I came across these gorgeous blue paw print arm warmers, all was redeemed:

I love the light blue colour, and the paw prints are a really nice quirky addition to them. They are also available in black @ $19.99.

On the other hand, I think this model is VERY unimpressed with this outfit she was given to wear (I don’t blame her, it has echoes of this):

Yeti Cycles T-Shirts Online Sale

The guys at Yeti Cycles are having a sale on some of their ladies t-shirts in their online shop at the moment. These t-shirts are great for before/after rides/races, cleaning mucky bikes and oiling rusty chains (ok, probably best not to wear the yellow one while doing this).

I like the bright colours and simple logos, and at a super-bargain $15.00 you cant really go wrong.

Available from Yeti Cycles.

French Fashion: Commencal

Commencal make great looking bikes, and looking at their shop their clothing line reflects this. From the 2009 line, this Patch Black jersey is a nice combination of graphics and slimline colouring.

For DH girls, and for winter riding, this SuperTeam long sleeve would be a good addition to any wardrobe.

I was also happy to see that they use REAL LIFE people to model their clothes. The trend of using computer generated graphics rather than the real item really puts me off buying clothes online. With real models, you can see the fit and colour, and get an idea whether it would suit the rider. Available from the Commencal Shop: http://shop.commencal.com/index.php

Top Ten Trainers: Five Ten Impact Karver

Five Ten shoes have recently introduced a women’s version of their ever popular MTB shoes. Available at CRC from ultra-tiny size 3 (35.5) up to size 7.5 (41.5), these shoes are a must for any XC or DH rider who uses flat pedals. The soles are made from super grippy Stealth rubber which make sure your feet stay on the pedals when you are going foot-out-flat-out.

Looking at their design, I was a bit disappointed that the usual purple/pinky colour scheme was used for a ladies MTB shoe, but considering that the shoes will most likely get so mucky that it wont be seen its not much of an issue. Two girls from my club have these, and have only good things to say about them, especially in that they protect your ankle from pedal-bashing.

Good call on Five Ten for introducing these (especially in the small sizes for girls like me!). These are a MUST for any flat pedal MTBer. Available from CRC: www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=33183

Ugly Cycling Clothes – 4

While job searching (ok I lie, all I do is read bike blogs all day) these two gems caught my eye:

The blurb attached to this jersey ‘Prowl around the neighborhood, leap over hills and look sleek doing it in the Gold Leopard Bellissima jersey!’ is as bad as the leopard print jersey itself:

Ok, I may be being a bit cruel with this one as a group of women did do a charity cycle wearing them BUT COME ON… Could you not have chosen something less 21 Jump Street (courtesy of World Jerseys)?

Did someone say spaceage? This fecal coloured Mavic jacket has to be one of the more ugly garments seen on CRC.
