    Riding Kit. The Early Years. What did you wear?

    Following on from the Lycra versus Baggies thread, I'd like to discuss what we wore back in the day. I'm asking the early adopters of this site specifically. Yes, I know Lycra was the kit for the racers in the 90's, but I'm more interested in what folk used in the mid 1980's before mountain...
