    Maybe I should have bought more than one if it has this effect

    I sure hope so. I've got mine on for the first time right now and I'm leaving in about 20 minutes to meet some other folks for a 30 to 50 mile ride.

    No picture because I'm a retro grouch so I don't have the technology or the interest.

    Sounds about right to me.
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    Others saw the jersey and were shaking in fear. Naturally they cleared the way for you and made your route free. Like the parting of the Red Sea. They've heard about them 50+ers.. GRRRRrrrr!

    I don't have a 50+ jersey yet, but I do have a "fast" jersey. It's an old Descente that I bought used. Fits like a coat of paint (close, but not tight), and whenever I wear it, my average speed goes up by about 2 mph. No kidding.

    OK, I'm back.

    Jersey worked great! I rode at or near the front of whatever group I was with all morning. That doesn't happen very often with me - maybe I just found the right group of people to ride with. Got lots of compliments on the plus 50 jersey. Several people wanted to know where I got it and some asked if there was a plus 60 version. All in all it was a really, really nice ride.

    Ok Dangit if there is a third order ever going in I want one. I missed out the first two times (monetary issues) it was the jersey of finish up my wifes bike (guess which) but next time I'm getting one. How is the fit? A loose fit or are they tight.? I like a looser fit myself I just don't deal with tight shirts very well

    I got the club cut. I would describe the fit as similar to other event jersey's that I've acquired. In other words, it fits my chest nicely but it hugs my belly a little more tightly than I'd like. I'm thinking that's not the fault of the jersey.

    If you wear two, will you go 20% faster?

    Not 60+, 65+.

    Yet, somehow you found your way onto the internet, and are no longer writing letters long hand and making hundreds of hand-written copies.

    Do you have any 3 cent stamps? They don't work any more.
