It's clear Jimmy is a gear queer - Look at all that gear he has hanging on his rack - He's only been climbing for a week or two!

One of those people (man or woman), usually not very athletic, who requires extensive amounts of "gear" for their sport of choice. For example, a biker with the spandex jersey, the spandex shorts, color coordinating helmut, water bottle, and fingerless gloves etc. These guys are usually NOT in shape, which provides us with evidence that they just went out and bought up all of the gear for looks.
Any athlete with lots of gear, would be a "gear queer"
