Okay, I recently got a new bike (Felt F-35) that I really like. I'm getting faster - can generally make my 12.5 mile trip to Waikiki at 17 mph or better if pushing (18.7 is my record average).
Now I'm thinking about getting a bike jersey. Those things can be darn expensive so I want to make sure I get something that will work for me in my conditions.
I'm in Hawaii and that means that normally it won't be colder than 63 degrees when I ride in the winter months. In the summer, the high temperature will usually be no higher than 91 degrees.
I'd more concerned about the heat than the cold (such as it is). I do have a Pearl Izumi jacket I can wear if I really need it.
So, what can people tell me to look for that will minimize heat build-up and wick away sweat well? I assume some of the fancy fabric names may be the same under different names for different companies, but which are best - and is wool something I should consider or are my temps to hot?
I guess I'm looking more for fabric options that are best rather than a specific shirt. But when I pin down the actual shirt, I prefer something not gauldy. I'd also prefer something with a LONG zipper because I have found it difficult to get my old stiff body out of these tight shirts I've tried.
