And I thought this would be a thread about the great pedaling available in the Garden State. Sigh. I have a gal who wants me to move there, so I would be interested in knowing more.

I like the comment that due to a lack of interest, the red jersey was removed from the thread.

Which new jersey were you referencing? The Foo jersey? A New Jersey new jersey?

I'm confused.

I believe he is referring to this one:
2008 Bike fourms jersey order thread.

When are the people who order jerseys (or the companies that make them) going to realize that the current modern cycling jersey has a full-length zipper? I would think they would be essential in popular cycling areas like Southern California. Once you've been able to ride in hot weather with the jersey unzipped, you realize just what an improvement the full zip jersey is over the old-style pullover. As well, you can take off a jersey with full-length zipper without having to remove everything from your back pockets, a definite advantage for guys like me who take full advantage of the back pockets on long rides.

It's kind of like when they switched from jerseys with collars to collarless jerseys, or front pockets to no front pockets, or wool to lycra. (Well, some of you might argue whether these were "impovements." I remember my very first cycling jersey back in 1972 was a collarless blue Sergal wool jersey with two front pockets and "tube knit" (no side seams). I think I took a seam ripper to the front pockets, but I'm thinking they would sure be useful now for small cue sheets or hotel room cards...

I started cycling in '68 and I remember those jerseys with front pockets! Mine just collected bugs, but maybe that was because I was in Missouri at the time . . . or not aero enough.

For sure, especially near Colonia where she lives. No fly fishing there.

Another good reason for a full-length zipper is the ease of removing it when it is stuck to you after a ride in hot weather, especially if you have bad shoulders.
