    Plus 50 Jerseys

    I rode with a gal wearing the red/black Plus 50 jersey. I would love to order one along with vest, etc. Is this still possible?
    Thanks!

    The ordering for those jerseys is a magical moment that has slipped past me so far. Keep checking often. they are a much sought ofter shirt.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    They're completely unofficial. A forum member designed them and takes orders once or twice a year.

    You'll have to keep your eyes open for the next time. Which is a perfect excuse to become a regular here!

    cccorlew does this out of the kindness of his heart. He designed the jersey (and pants and jacket and long sleeve) and takes orders every now and then.

    It is a lor of work for which he gets no payment/

    Plus, in addition to looking great, they are very comfortable and are admired by other cyclists, young and old alike!

    We both coveted her jersey on Saturday. Hope both of us can get one next time they are available.

    The cool thing about the jersey is that they have a full zipper, so you can look TdF cool riding up the mountain pass on a hot day with the jersey undone and flapping to each side! Then as you approach the summit, you take your hands off the bars, slide your fingers down the edge of each zipper, then join the bottom edges together and zip the jersey all the way up for the cold descent!

    Full zip jerseys are the only way to go. I can't believe there are clubs that still order the old fashioned jerseys with the zippers that only go down six or eight inches. I refuse to buy those old jerseys anymore!

    I usually try to put together an order once or twice a year. For those new here, here's the story:
    I need to get a minimum of about a dozen to hit the order minimum. I have people paypal me in advance, then worry I've skipped town with their cash.
    It takes longer than you can imagine to get them to you once you pay.

    So, those posting, weigh in. Do you think there are a dozen jersey buyers out there now, in these troubled economic times as we head into the off-season? Should I do an order?

    Here's a bonus photo

    I am not allowed to buy any more jerseys until at least five of them fall apart of their own accord.

    But that's not happening. It seems to me that good quality bike jerseys last for ever -- the only one I ever got rid of was one that I gave away. (It was very nice, but a notch or two too small)

    No one has discussed price yet? How much are we talking. I'd be one of the dozen if it's affordable. PG

    I've considered this the last two times, but kept thinking I have too much bike gear. I seem to remember they were reasonably priced (but not cheap). Now I'm ready, so count me in (+1 on the full zip!). Do I make the 12th?

    Here the link to the March/April order thread:

    Got the jersey last year. Needs the bibs.

    And yes, the full zip is too cool. It's the only jersey I own with full zip.

    What will the cut be? Mine was a bit too snug for my liking and it was supposed to be the looser fit.
