But if we need to stay down tehre I'd say that the length of the socks is much more important than the colour, can't stand all these long socks you see nowadays. I'd say anything longer than 1.5 cm above the edge of the shoe is way too long, and takes us into Lance-land.
With mismatched pro gear I mean jersey from one pro team, and shorts from another, none of which you are sponsored from and hence are paying for wearing advertisments.
So, do you think we've made enough fool of ourselves in the eyes of the non-cyclist here yet, or should we dig ourselves even deeper?

I heard heard that socks must extend above booties though. Can anyone confirm this? How much extension should I be measuring with my ruler before the ride? What if they come down during the ride? What is the protocol on pulling socks up?
fredrikw wrote:Yeah, who has ever heard of socks extending above the bootie/overshoe? that's crazy talk. But I guess if we're talking about football socks it makes sense. I stand by my strict limit of 1.5cm above the edge of the shoe, that'll never bring the sock near even the lowest cut overshoe.
I'm still a white sock sceptic though
