Foo confession- Wow those roadie pockets are neatO!!!

I hope whoever came up with those 3 little elasticky pockets on the back of roadie jerseys at least made like a billion or won a lifetime supply of nachos or oscar mayer weiners. This really took some kind of calculated genius. I bet Merton's great grand pappy was responsible.

I seriously fit all lifes necessities in them. I was planning on going against the grain and using my camelbak, but why?

I fit all this-

A half eaten burrito- Self explanatory
Medium Mt. Dew- To keep that caffeine sugar buzz goin' throughout the day.
Wallet- To squander my moneys in bike shops and on pr0n.
Phone- To holla at ma girls while ballin' down the street on my pimp ride.
Camera- To take pictures of Siu while she ain't lookin' I mean... uhhh..
Knife- To fend off evil pirates tryin' to steal my multitoolz.

In conclusion, I'd like to say, Vote for Siu!!!!!

hehe I've ridden behind some people who have used every stretchy square inch of their back jersey pockets - wondering how the hell it all stays in there as they walk around with this pile of stuff hanging off them - I mean apples, bananas (plural), maps, extra water bottle, cleenex, bars, etc.

I've stuffed a few items in there but when the jersey starts hanging on the butt, it's time to shed a few items

Another use for the mt dew, is too cool off my back when it spills all over me and my camera. Was a great plan.

@ tude, that's the point!! use em!! they are the alternative to camelbaks.

I forgot to say. Everyone, let us know how much you "fit" into your roadie pockets.

Hahaha. I commute. I carry:

A Bulging wallet in the center pocket. It keeps the back of the jersey weighted down, so's I don't get a cresent-shaped sunburn just above my waistline.

My massive keychain in my left pocket. I hope I never crash and land on my back. That thing's gonna leave a mark!

A knife in my right pocket.

If I'm carrying my HAM radio, it goes into my center pocket on top of my wallet, and I clip the speaker-mic to my collar.

Everything else goes into my trunk.

I think it's a requirement that you can only max curl 2 lb weights to be a true roadie. I can curl 40, therefore I'm just "a cyclist".

What do you think the final straw will be?


Installing a mirror on the helmet? Referring to that "other" cycling venue as the Darkside?

Credit Card, Insurance Card, ID, a 10 or 20 if I have one on me, and my keys. Cell goes in front right pocket, Ipod goes in front left pocket (or in case of kilt, they both go in front pouch)

If i have to carry anything else, its time for a backpack/panniers/rear rack bag thingy, any or all of those 3.

I typically carry my wallet and cell phone in my left pocket, an extra water bottle in my center pocket, and my keys and a knife in the right one.

Mtbikers don't need no raincoats.

Tubes? I don't get flats, I'm tough like that.

Gu's? Mt dew is all the energy I need.

Live animals? I like em dead, and in my burrito.

Those pockets aren't worth a (bleep) on a recumbent. Unless you like laying on lumps.
