You get what you pay for

You get what you pay for

Let's assume you are new, clueless rider that is just starting the journey. Or experienced rider. You know that you must protect yourself with some gear. Knowing that you are losing some weight you decide to get some "temporary" gear. You go to your local Cycle Gear and give them your business.

It's human nature to always try to get a deal. We always know that cheap never works right, yet time and time again we end up in the same trap. Hey, this Bilt stuff looks decent and it's on sale, 50% off! What a lucky day. It doesn't occur to you that other brands sell gear in the same category for at least double the price, you just fooled yourself into believing that you are getting a deal.

So you pick up a set of awesome Bilt Paddock mesh gear and ride into the sunset. You are now protected head to toe. Or so you thought. Later, when you crash and end up with road rash all over your body you realize that you should have picked up quality gear. But it's too late.BiltPaddockFail2BiltPaddockFail3BiltPaddockFail


The pictures are from Facebook user Jessica Martin. She really wanted to share her story so others could avoid making the  same mistake. Do not skimp on your gear and wear it if you already have it. Too many people riding in t-shirts "because it's hot".
