Frugal Cycling Sock Fail

I am a visual person. So the subject of socks piqued my interest. But immediately I hit problem. $20 for one pair of socks??!!

No, it’s buy one, get one free!

Of course my friend says, “No, it’s buy one, get one free!”  But I don’t fall for it.

Nor am I convinced my ankles are that compelling that I should draw attention to them.

Maybe some ankles are better than others…

But a lot of energy does seem to go into socks.

What interested me also is that there are racing regulations for socks!

But me? I am a black sock guy.

But if you are a sock person, Live and Let Live.

Here is a good source ( http://www.sockguy.com/ ) for socks (in addition to eBay of course!)
