1) overtrousers don't break when you're trying to get your bike in the boot
2) If your overtrousers rub on your wheel, you don't need a spanner to make them stop
3) if you get a stone jammed in your overtrousers you don't end up in a hedge
4) it doesn't take half an hour to put your overtrousers on
Dave is a founding father of road.cc and responsible for kicking the server when it breaks. In a previous life he was a graphic designer but he's also a three-time Mountain Bike Bog Snorkelling world champion, and remains unbeaten through the bog. Dave rides all sorts of bikes but tends to prefer metal ones. He's getting old is why.
