what is the deal with this "We Abide Remain in Light". What is the importance of that? How does that differ from "Stay Stoked!!!"

Akirasho spends more time abiding in light than he does riding. Then again he rides recumbents and c'dales, so maybe thats understandable.

Talk about mixing it up, fashion wise: why is he wearing mountain bike shoes, hah?

I see a guy everyonce in a while on a USPS trek, full team kit etc. I have to say, he looks very natural on/in it, maybe he's a pro.

The only thing that spoils the effect is that he's always wearing a Maillot Jaune. uh... right... we've only had 2 tour winners in this country i think...and he ain't one of them.

Personally I don't care if people want to wear a complete set of matching clothes or wear a mixture,
so long as it's colour coordinated! I always wear black shorts, so any jersey will match.
I see a lot of guys wearing "team colours" UPS, Credit Agricole, Saeco, they even have the
matching bikes, they all look cool but I wouldn't feel comfortable wearing team colours though.
I not sure why, it just isn't my thing. Then again I am not one to go with the crowd either.
Like I said who cares what people wear, as long as their riding it's all good to me.
It's no wonder we get called "Roadie Pricks" by the MTBers, we now bitch about what people wear!

... agreed...

The original intent of the post was to illustrate "variations".

Personally, I like some form of coordination (much like everyday clothing) but have no problems with what folks wear (ok, the Malliot Juane might be pushing it a bit (unless of course, they've earned it)). It's rare to see this much variation on any rider... and rarer still for a professional shoot (which might have been their intent). No elitist attitude or "Roadie Prick" sentiment intended...
