    Just a question on those long socks.Do they cause any problems with restricting your blood flow in your leg veins ?.

    • Anne-Marije Rook

      Hey Derek. Personally, have never had a problem with tall socks. Most are not meant to be a compression sock per se and aren’t super tight.

        Thanks for replying Anne-Marije. Those longer socks would be real handy in the winter months.
        That Mondrian cycling outfit reminds me a little of the old TDF combine Jersey in its design. Does look good though. Hope a set wings its way to you at Christmas if you drop a hint to relatives/friends or partner best of luck.

    Why are women’s cycling shorts often so short in the leg? Serious question. Function or fashion?

    • Anne-Marije Rook

      Preference and fashion more than anything. Obviously women, in general, are significantly shorter than men and so the inseam had to be adjusted but even so, most inseams are around 22-23 cm and sit around 10cm or so above the knee. Though triathlon shorts can be quite a bit shorter (unsure why).

        Tri shorts are on the short side because there is less drag in the water and they are more comfy to run in. Plus a decreased risk of chaffing all round!

        • Anne-Marije Rook

          Ah! That makes sense!

        Our sports director used to make sure that our shorts were shorter than usual, so that our tan lines would be high enough not to see them when we would wear skirts in the summer. He’s a true genius :-)
