Nice idea, but we'd really prefer they said bikeforums.NET

(I am teasing of course, but we are a .net site.)

The way to make this happen is to design one, get it spec'd out through a company that makes custom jerseys, then get enough folks to purchase one.

Take the initiative. Many of the regional forums (So Cal, Great Lakes, Texas) and the 50+ forum have all done this in the past.

Just make sure it says BikeForums.net on there in some fashion.

Good luck.

Everytime I see that jersey I get sad. I ordered a M, and it did fit back then. I should have ordered the XL, but who would have thought the years of beer, getting married, and becoming a father would have such an affect on one's body.

Well, the SoCal BFers have created our own regional jersey...see here:

retro jersey w/ white sleeves?

I'm currently taking orders, so if you are/were/want to be/want to pretend you are from SoCal and frequent BikeForums, PM me.

Are you thinking of skidmarks? cause that would require shorts, not a shirt.

With me, too - jerseys + mtb = fail. I wear other stuff on top when in the field/trees - expensive stuff goes out on the roadie. I seem to break and tear things when out offroading... but HEY - that's a good thing.

I have both BF Texas jerseys. Might be in for a Foo jersey.

Texas BikeForums Jersey VOTE Thread!

Here is the design thread where we finalized our ideas. Might be something useful in there.
