Hey Jimmy S,

I am sure there are few images of you sporting some fine lycra (like the cover of a NH climbing Guide) Here is a story I know you will laugh at. I remember when Stevie Damboise came back to Maine from the "mecca" of North Conway sometime in the late 80's and told us backwoods bumblers that lycra was dead. I was crushed. I had a pair for every day of the week and Halloween was only once a year!!!

Honestly, I have been continuously discussing the possibilities of bringing back lycra. I'm heading to Red Rocks in a week. If anyone can tell me where I can get a sweet pair of 80's style lycra pants, I'll wear them. Plus I'll rock the handle bar mustache.

Any help????

Hankster and Cot posted some great vintage wear. We are getting into the real stuff now.

Jimmy, Yeah I remember those early heavy duty tights. Here's Rob Robinson in mid 80s wearing em.

Ah true fashon statements have a language all their own. Wonder what it is?

Running Funky (linked up-thread) has an incredible selection of fantastically eye-searing patterns to choose from. If you're looking for lycra, they're worth taking a look at.

Thank you, thank you, thank you... Running Funky

Now my problem is deciding which pattern to buy and how many pairs to get.

Excellent! We watched the Dogfather video last night. It's great on so many levels AND it is loaded with some crazy lycra too. Stuff cracks me up.

Hmm, so back in the day, did you all wear anything over the top of your fancypants on the approach? Did you stroll through the parking lot in neon glory, or bust out your lycra lusciousness at the base of the climb?

Hahahaha! This thread is a riot. Here's a new photo for it:


Can you name the location? The climber? I forgot the specific route name - you guys likely know.
