Your Old Dad’s Old Pants

by Joy Monger

Dad used to be a pretty big biker and also a pretty big spender so he has all this fancy bike gear.  It’s all from the early nineties and very, very neon, but good stuff none-the-less.

He called me today and asked if I wanted to have a look at it. I was stoked because bike shorts are ridiculously expensive (apparently the privilege of looking like a sausage in black casing is reserved for the wealthy).

The best part is how he phrased it;

“I’m sure you don’t want to wear your old dad’s old pants but you can have them if you like.”

I took dad’s old pants for a spin on the bike this weekend and I think I looked pretty good.  For a sausage in neon casing.
