    Jersey & Shorts

    I'm looking for a nice jersey and shorts, I have look at my LBS but I found all of them very pricey. What is a good price for a set?

    Thanks,

    Go online to Performance, Nashbar, or Supergo..They have sales all the time...W/o a sale, good cycle wear is not cheap...Particularily if you want the more effective , better grade chamois...But on sale, not uncommon to get $70 shorts/ $60 jerseys for $20 off of each.
    Lesser expensive shorts/ jersey's you can get for maybe for a total of about $65..That means the chamois is pretty thin and jerseys are pretty plain.

    If you're looking to save money, don't do it on your BUTT.
    That's the one place where you should never skimp and save.

    That being said, not all high-end shorts are the same, and you will spend some time finding the best fit for your arse.

    If ever there were a case of You-Get-What-You-Pay-For.... this is it.

    You can be in a hurry and buy now , get a cheap chamois and it will not help that much on really long rides..Wait and get a good set of shorts when you find a sale...Often PI attack shorts are on sale for under $50..Cheaper end of PI but still feels pretty good to me on 60 mile plus rides.
