Yesterday I was scouring the web for Cycling Clothing. Not lycra superhero clothes, but anything that can transition from the bike to the office and look sharp. I was prompted to search for new pants because I had specifically worn holes in strategic areas of my Levi’s that were making them borderline unacceptable for office attire.
I found from their stylish and helpful website, that one of their retail locations, Affinity Cycleswas right down the block from where I live.
On my way home, I rode to the shop, located on Grand Street in increasingly bike Friendly Williamsburg Brooklyn. The shop, which is kind of new I think, seemed to cover a broad range of cycling needs. I noticed some hot BMX bikes, classic road bikes, used (?) commuter bikes and a plethora of Surlys.
I quickly located a pair of Outlier 4 Season Pants, but there was only one pair left and it was too big for me.
I spoke with a dude who told me that Tyler, one of the guys from Outlier, was just in the shop the day before, that they would be getting more of the stuff in this weekend and would be sort of an ongoing, special supplier for the area.
I’m definitely going back, to try some on.
