Thanks to my wife and Love2Pedal for the awesome BDay present.

I had a jersey pulled up online that I liked and wanted to order and when I woke up this morning I had it sitting at the side of my bed for my birthday. I guess the wife saw it and went ahead and ordered it when I wasn't paying attention.

She never ordered it until Tuesday afternoon though, so a HUGE thanks to Dan for the lightning fast delivery as always. This is my 2nd order from love2pedal and both have arrived in a matter of days. Best customer service out there, you'll have many more orders coming your way from me in the future!

And here's the big kid in the little jersey! It's still a little snug but it's also my motivation to lose the love handles. I'll be ordering the dress blues USMC jersey as soon as that's remedied.

Nice, and yes, L2P is "FAST" when it comes to delivery.

Happy Birthday and hello to the great wife!! You don't look too bad in that jersey from my perspective.

Just got back into cycling and I got this jersey from them.



Bought it XXL. In a couple months plan to order in XL and by Spring L.

Just wanted to drop in and say thanks to Dan once again. My other present to myself was a new set of bibs (the old ones are already too big!) that I ordered sometime around 4 Friday afternoon (the 10th) and they were already in my mailbox today when I got home for lunch.

If I can find it at love2pedal I'll never order from anyone else.
