Does anyone know where I can find reasonably priced plain black cycling socks which are pretty much exactly the length pictured here?

Why would you want plain black sox when you could wear stuff like this...

Bike :thumbsup:

If you sort through I'm sure you can fine plain black
I have a pair of sockguy socks. I'm not a fan, I think they're poor quality for cycling.

The ones I linked can be bought plain white or black, depending on your shoe color. They're far superior in most every way for cycling if you ask me.

A cotton blend for cycling?!? Your feet must not sweat nor do you ever ride in the rain. Those Ebay socks are for gamers not athletes.
SockGuy socks are some of the most comfortable cycling socks I have tried. They wick well, they fit well and can be placed precisely around the toes instead of having some big Ebay sock wad of fabric at your toes. They are thin, some people prefer thicker, more padded socks.

yeah, we're talking cycling, not playing dodge ball in a 1978 middle school gym class.

anyway, I only use Swiftwick socks in the summer and they seem really good. But then again I use a number of different brand's merino wool non cycling specific socks when it's cold and they work fine too.
So I don't think it really matters as long as the material doesn't absorb sweat and the thickness doesn't f up the fit of your shoes.

+1 for Swiftwick. They have a nice light compression and come in just about any color or length you can think of.
