    New 50+ BF jersey/shorts buy

    NOTE: Closed! Last day to order was WEDNESDAY October 1
    (unless we need more time to hit the minimum order size [update: Minimum order reached!])

    Here we go again. It's jersey time. So many people posted they wanted in I thought,
    I may be nuts, but I'm going to try it. And I've designed shorts/bibs too!
    No socks though, the minimum is just too high.

    Payment info so far



    Jersey (same look for long sleeve, sleeveless, jacket and vest)

    Really large image at http://www.flickr.com/photos/ccorlew...99780/sizes/o/

    Here's me (on the left, with my wife the right) in my 50+ jacket on the Waves to Wine ride last weekend.



    Shorts (also as bibs)

    Please read all this first:

    * Please oh please read and follow the order directions with care.
    * I will update (edit) this post with a table of order info to confirm your order.
    For "big news" I'll add a new post in the thread that references this one.
    * The jersey is the jersey, I can't make any changes, no matter how small, without starting the whole process over again with new minimum orders and everything.
    * Check the sizing chart below. Don't even think about the race fit jersey unless you are almost a pro and rail thin. Just don't.
    * This process takes longer than you think, waiting for orders, having them made, getting them shipped. Don't expect this to be like a real store. Like over 6 weeks after i order to get them to send out.
    * Posting here is fine, but your actual order is the Paypay message (and money) I get.
    * On the plus side, I've done this three times (or is it four?) and haven't run off with the cash yet. Your jersey will arrive someday.
    * I'm a teacher and an artist and not a businessman. I'm doing this just because it's fun and neat to see these pop up all over.

    * Orders close on OCT 1 Don't send money after that!
    * Outside the USA? Message or email me and we'll work out postage. It will be more. I got killed on a couple of non-USA orders last time.

    What you can get, and how much it costs:

    Short Sleeve Jersey $60
    Sleeveless Jersey $60
    Long Sleeve Jersey $67
    Wind Vest $58 (note, no women specific sizes), order smaller)
    Wind Jacket $65 (note, no women specific sizes), order smaller)
    Shorts $67
    Bib Shorts $75
    Prices include shipping to USA

    Sizes available:
    xs, s, m, l, xl, 2xl, 3xl, 4xl

    All with have full length zippers !!!!

    How to order:

    Use PayPal. It's the only way I can do this and live through it. Paypal accounts are free to send money with. Get one. http://www.paypal.com
    Send money to: TO LATE. Don't send anything

    Paypal me the correct amount of money, and include in the comment/message area this info, in this order!

    Real Name
    Street Address
    City
    state
    Zip

    Bike Forum name
    Item ordered (vest, short sleeve jersey, long sleeve etc)
    Cut (mens club, mens race, womens) See note above about race cut.
    Size (xl, sm, etc)


    Sizing info:


    Fine print:
    This is a not-for-profit effort. One of my personal goals is to not end up being out of pocket in doing this.
    Because of that, I have no room for error. I can't make refunds or changes to completed orders. I can't change sizes after I place the order.
    This entire process will take a while. I've put a four week deadline for payment, and the company takes a about 6 weeks to make them.

    I hesitate to ask:

    Is there any chance of creating a 65 plus version?

    Well, I'm doing the jersey for the +50 Forum... So it's a +50 jersey.
    When there's a +65 forum, and I'm +65, then who knows.

    By the way, + 50 is inclusive for +65. It' a math thing.

    Those are really really tight.

    I wore my 50+ jersey on the Olkd Kentucky Home Tour and got bow coo compliments on it.

    I think the shorts would be a little over the top. Or something, for me. But they're tight.

    Darn, I was hoping the red parts of the shorts would cover the crotch area.

    Here's a story I've heard:
    Bike shorts are black because the Pope said so at some point. Apparently the colors were too revealing.
    I know growing up it was black only until the tri-geeks came along and threw tradition to the wind by wearing sleeveless jerseys and colored shorts.

    True? I'm not sure, but it makes a good tale.

    As to why you need the red bits to cover your crotch I fear asking, knowing it won't make a pretty picture in my mind. Yet I will......
    Why would red in the crotch please you so?

    I have taken us dangerously close to tempting someone into re-posting the red cycling shorts picture for the 15th time.

    You just moved us even closer.

    Thanks! I sent the money via PP, but unfortunately there was no comment box (that I saw) so I paid before I had a chance to enter the order details. I sent the details via a separate email direct to you. Please let me know if you have any problems with this.

    Hey all, I've updated my 1st post with payment info. Please check your order info there and alert me if it isn't correct.

    And HEY! Someone needs to order shorts so i can hit the minimum. I want some!
    CORRECTION: It's OK after all. As long as I hit the jersey minimum they'll make 1 pair of shorts for me!

    My, my, they are very small on their sizes. I see that on their shorts a 36" waist is XL. I've never seen that before. In a typical store an XL means 40-42". For these guys, a 40" waist is XXXL!!!

    I'm torn between the vest and the jacket. My current favorite jacket has detachable sleeves and I always end up removing them at some point as I warm up. But I like the looks of that 50+ jacket. I think I remember you saying in a much earlier post that the jacket fits either large or small. Typical SoCal weather in our neck of the woods (not so in the ski resorts) usually doesn't stay cold enough to leave the sleeves on until noon so I'd probably always remove them. If I wear the jacket and have to remove it, then who'd see it? I think I just answered my own question.

    I have a medium jacket and vest. The vest fits me really well, not too tight, but not "flappy"
    The jacket fits, but the sleeves are, in my mind, more roomy than they need to be. Maybe I just have wimpy arms... I still wear it a bunch.

    I often find teh vest and very light arm warmers are just the thing. I bought very light weight joke tattoo-look arm warmers on eBay and am amazed how often that's all I need.

    I'm seriously considering a jacket or vest this round. I'm really pleased with the jersey I got in the last round.

    I'm a little conflicted on sizing. I have the club cut XL jersey, which fits well. Looking over the size chart, I believe that the vests and jackets are sized like the race cut jersey. If that's the case, I should probably go up to a XXL or XXXL. Anybody have jacket/vest and care to comment?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    And thanks again for doing this, Curtis. I should have a decision made and money in by October 1.

    Do you wear the tattoo-look arm warmers with the 50+ jersey?

    I've always like the arm warmers but thought they would clash with most of my jerseys. I think they would look great with my 50+ jersey. Any pictures of the 50+ with the arm warmers?
