  1. The socks do appear to say “shit”, not “sh!t”. Are you seriously so prudish you can’t write “shit”? Not even when it’s the name of the product, more or less? Now I’m wondering if my comment will be censored 🙂

  2. KitKat – I agree. I used to have a ’96 RaceLite same color/decals converted to SS and this picture brought back some wonderful memories.

  3. Hand-made? So, someone sat down with a spinning wheel, pulled out some merino wool/lycra thread, then mixed up some mushroom, bug shell, and flower pistil dyes, colored the thread, and wove it up with a foot-treadle loom? Or did they just sew up some socks?

  4. Ron, Strawfoot Handmade is the name of the company because all the bags are hand crafted. The socks are made by Defeet in North Carolina, likely by sock robots. Nobody said the socks were handmade.

  5. Looks like Bike Rumor is censoring comments. I’m going to go over to where free thought and open discussion is allowed.
