    Clydesdale Jersey

    So who likes the idea of getting Clydesdale Jerseys printed?

    If you are in do you have any thoughts?

    Obvious ideas:
    • clydesdale on bike
    • fun stuff written on it (see my signature for my idea...)*
    • funky colors/pattern?
    • "Objects in mirror may appear larger than..."
    • etc?


    *In my mind it is like the Arrogant Bastard jersey
    Inside me is a thin man dying to get out.

    Why not just wear a Budweiser jersey?

    I would be in. Great idea. It needs to be somewhat conservative for me. I don't want to look like a clown riding down the road.

    I don't think there is a Bud jersey with a clydesdale on it. I've looked/googled.

    I've been wanting a clydesdale jersey for a while. Just make sure it's not all fruity looking. I don't want some **** looking prarie scene. Maybe something like a clydesdale pulling a pack of cyclists.

    I'd buy one. Nothing to "fat guy" please. I'm just a big guy not really fat.

    I think my bike hates me.

    Another idea I have toyed with is "Single Lane Drafting Only"
    I weigh around 240 pounds and whenever I am riding along at 20 mph I usually see two riders side by side behind me taking advantage of the extra draft I provide.

    Like the no name food at the market... That works well 'cause you could go with a solid white jersey. But it misses/conflicts with the "clydsedale" thing.

    Whatever the group thinks... I'll compile and submit for review.

    How about something like a road sign with "caution: Fat guys in lycra crossing" or "beware of big men wearing lycra" or "never too big to be on a bike". Just my 2 cents as a 250lb rider.

    Ps. Just the other day as I was at a stop sign I heard a someone yell "hey your too fat to ride that bike" to which my response was "Hey I did not know A-holes could talk" Luckily he laughed and said good one and we both went our separate way's

    bikejerseys.com has full team jerseys and some generic jerseys that run up to 6xl.. Remember that the Santini jerseys run about 2 sizes small.. I like using them because my big issue is jersey length because I am so tall.. I can get a jersey that fits but the pockets are in the middle of my back.. The Santini jerseys are plenty long and a great choice in sizes..

    I've always wondered: Does clydesdale refer to fat or just being over 200 pounds, regardless of body composition?

    Has to have the following sponsor categories:

    Beer

    Pizza

    Donuts

    We could ask Jan Ullrich for his suggestions.

    just the two beans...

    It is an impercise term. I used to show up at clydesdale and super clydesdale (>250#) events and there would be these 6'6" guys who did nothing but work out and ride. We should not be in the same category.

    How about a Clydesdale pulling a full peloton of twenty behind it? Sort of a take on the Budweiser theme.

    I really like either this idea or the one w/ the Clydesdale pulling the pelaton. FWIW.

    Except with a more Budweiser theme. (Front) Looking at the Clydes (men) pulling the carraige at you. (Back) the back of the carraige with a some kind of quip about Clydesdale. Use a font similar to the Bud ads.

    I would be in....280 down to 265 now...6'2!!!

    I've considered having some "Team Clydesdale" jerseys made and then trying to sell them but I've been afraid i'd sell four jerseys and then be stuck with a lifetimes worth of jerseys in my house.
    I once prayed to god for a bike, but quickly found out he didnt work that way...so I stole a bike and prayed for his forgiveness
