I'm definitly thinking not.
If i was to go on a group ride with some of you crazy MFers then i wouldn't settle for anything less. But these suits are heavy, their really warm (its pretty hot out right now, their difficult to get on without a good 5 minutes of unzipping and zipping. And don't seem practical for casual use. Plus a suit comes out to like 950 bucks (tax included).
I've got a pretty solid helmet right now
Ive got a pair of dirt bike gloves, leather, but thin and feel a little inadequate for tarmac. Ive also got some heavy leather hiking boots i use for outdoor work, those should be good enough for the feet.
The main trouble I'm having is that I'm a broad shouldered but fairly skinny guy, so getting a piece of equipment that will fit me is trouble.
I think i will go with textiles, when the speeds start getting serious ill go leather. Anyone have any comments about this?
