    A Jersey for the 50+ Crowd

    Since it seems that many of us don't like the tight fit of most of today's cycling jerseys I thought this might interest some of you.

    It appears that it fits more like a T-shirt and even though it doesn't have real bike pockets in the rear, it does have a zippered pocket that is probably workable for most of us. And, it's on sale....at least for a little while. I'm going to try one.

    It's a mountain biking shirt. It requires a Camelbak attached to the back. Just sayin'.

    After looking at my posted photo, what I need is some sort of maternity biking jersey. Maybe Beverly can advise us.

    That's just great. A snootful of pinot noir just went out my nose and all over my keyboard. Glad it was the cheap stuff.

    Gee, I am all messed up. I though it was OK to use a Camelbak while road riding and commuting not just mountain biking. Glad you set that straight.

    I'm old and set in my ways, but I'd be willing to try to accept someone with a Camelbak on a group road ride. Even though deep down I'd think they were a pervert.

    Are you calling me a pervert? I've been called a lot of things in my life but never a pervert

    I love my Camelbak on those long group rides

    Kind of a stretch. One pocket and a slightly larger saddle bag would hold what I usually haul down the road.
    My only problem with this shirt is that I don't see any advantage over jerseys available online for $20 to $25, sometimes less.

    As for Camelbacks on road rides, I think they are OK if you are going to be out in the middle of nowhere without a chance to make a store stop within the time it takes you to drink 2 water bottles dry. What really seems silly to me is people I see using Camelbacks on organized rides with rest stops 10-20 miles apart. I don't even like having that weight on my back on the MTB if I can get by without it. But whatever works...

    I'm Ambien +10'. I'm no longer responsible for anything that comes out of this IP address.

    I would have loved to have worn a Camelbak today. It was 85 and I was riding a very hilly trail. I went through two full bottles of PowerAde in the first 3 miles. If fact, it was the rate-limiting factor to the ride. I would have liked to have gone further but didn't want to be a heat casualty this early in the year.

    Next time I'm taking my 1.7 liter (corrected it) MULE.

    Not to derail the thread or anything.

    I hear if you pour soda water on it, it comes out pretty well.

    Of course my Camelbak is women specific equipment.

    I'm not sure the Camelbak would have done much for my trip today. It was 50+ miles in a van who's air conditioning seems to have quit working

    "Besides being incredibly stylish and just plain cool, the Pixie Hydration Pack has dual front pockets....."

    Camelbak got their start making military equipment, and now it's come to a 'cool Pixie Pack'?

    This is just so wrong.

    Well I've learned something...had no idea that little zip-up pocket was an indicator that the shirt was designed for mountain biking/camel backs.

    I'm going to try to get down to the Performance shop this week and see if their Classic cut jerseys are much looser than their standard cut.

    Requireing a camel back indeed. For the rides I do- I am thinking of a dromedary. One hump filled with Energy drink and the other one Pinot Noir.

    Those little handles on the push-down corkscrews can also be used as tire levers in a pinch and they will fit in a seat pack. I'm not sure if the make them CF though.

    Er, if the PN did more damage to your keyboard than vice versa, perhaps some reconsidering of priorities is in order?

    Friday I rode 75 miles without stopping every 10-20 miles to get water. That's why I wear a Camelbak.

    Also, it can get really hot here, and I've got an insualted one that keeps the water cold for 4 hours. It's really cool (ha!) to be drnking cold water in the heat.

    But hey, to each his own. You may need to stop more often and need an excuse.

    "To each his own" said the old lady as she kissed the cow.

    I don't need an excuse to stop. I'd rather stop and refill than carry the weight on my back. I'm usually ready for a stretch by that time anyway. If you would rather carry water than stop, or if there is nowhere convenient to stop, then a Camelbak is a good way to do it. Whatever blows your skirt up.
