White bibs just aint never gonna happen for MANY reasons.


Snippet


Once universally reviled, in the interests of generating easy publicity some squads have occasionally chucked this stylistic dead cat onto the table.

Perhaps conscious of the tradition of sprint team’s making their kit as obnoxious as possible, HTC Highroad and Mark Cavendish rode a few seasons in all white around the late 2000s.

It’s very pro. About 15 years ago I had an Italia kit by Sportful that was light blue with a lot of white. I liked it, but it’s a dirt magnet. You need to keep your hands off it while riding. In the dry high summer with no mechanicals you can get by unscathed. It was similar to this but the bibs were white with blue. Also had these socks.

I have a pair of black bibs with large white accents. I don’t like that. They were on special and the deal was just too good to pass up and I really needed a new pair of bibs. I’m fine with other colors but not white.

I MIGHT be able to do bibs trimmed in white, not complete white bibs tho.

Jolanda Neff looks much better in white bibs than those guys!
First off, Neffy looks better than most everyone.

Second, Whit kits are simply the best. I agree whit bibs are questionable. Really spendy ones don’t shine through. Best bet is to avoid them. The rest of the kit tho is simply stunning when white. White with soft color poka dots is the way to go.

Side fact: White bikes are faster.

I wear a SPF50 rashguard most of the time instead of an actual jersey.........not sorry



and baggy black MTB shorts......no white bibs or regular bike shorts or white shoes..........again, not sorry. I do have whitish, black and red helmets to choose from.

I don't even wear anything white in everyday life. Casual or otherwise.

But my wife and I do have matching bike shorts that have a band of a different texture of white Lycra around the bottom of each leg. Don't even like that small amount of white.

P.S. Also, we make sure we never wear the same bike shorts when we are riding together ;)
