Wait, you wore jeans to ride a bike?

You would no more ride a bike in jeans than you would go jogging in your dress shoes.  Jeans are heavy and have a lot of friction, both of which inhibit free movement.  Worse, they'll chafe your skin in places you'd rather not have chafed, and if wet (sweat or rain) they become a heavy stinking soggy mess.  Other than that they're okay.  Except for their propensity to absorb and hold sprocket grease.

That's the Fabian Cancellara model (OK, that's an inside joke for me and ATBC, most likely).
