    Where do you get your jerseys?

    My LBS has terrible selection... and only sells the most expensive. I don't really have the budget to drop three digits on a jersey. I was wondering if perhaps you could refer me to the online retailer you use?

    Moreso interested in mountain biking jerseys over road cycling jerseys. Doesn't really matter too much.

    Thanks!

    I don't wear 'em anymore--I do nearly all my riding in T-shirts these days, lest I be mistaken for one of hundreds of arrogant roadie prix around here...
    But back when I did, i bought them here:
    www.nashbar.com
    www.performancebike.com
    www.sierratradingpost.com

    Also, if you have an REI in your area, they often have pretty good jerseys on sale.

    Great tip on velowear! I've got a few inexpensive Jerseys from performance and they are ok. The pockets in a jersey are very practical, but I'd only buy a more expensive jersey as a momento of a big ride. $100+ jersey, no way.

    I ordered my club Jerseys from my LBS and that wasn’t too bad. But I have found better deals at outlet stores. I got some Rock Racing Bibs from Rocking Republic for $55.00 and they had jerseys for about the same price. Didn’t happen to have my sixe but I will keep checking back.

    Also look for cycling events like a local century. The vendor booths at some of those events will often have overstocked Jerseys for a great price. The Palm Spring Century had a booth with Jerseys on sale for $30.00- $40.00.

    Otherwise look for discount jerseys on the net. There are quite a few with prices you will not believe.

    I hope that you are not in search of the goofy Rice Krispies/ Spongebob/ Reeses Pieces/ Gerolsteiner type of nonsense? Sierratradingpost.com has a decent selection from time to time. Your best bet is to get a few at a bike ride where some vendors will sell them for a little bit of nothing.

    i'm not looking for anything goofy... but I'm also not looking for something boring and/or brightly colored for the roadies.

    If i want solids I'll go with UA things as they're cheap and plentiful here. They're just boring, and I need something with long sleeves for trail riding (the nettles, mossies and fire ants bother me ).

    Only wear the "Shroud of Arrogance" at dusk when I want that visibility going for me. Other than that - Dashikis.

    I sew my own bike outfits. When I see something I like, I buy it and use it as a pattern for future outfits. If you don't want to do/know how to sew, have your local seamstress/tailor make ones for you.

    Does elevengear only sell men's clothing? Doesn't seem there's any way to get a women's jersey from them. That's a shame -- I'd like a poseur jersey

    Dude,

    Just cruize ebay - You can get unique and cool cycling jerseys for a song - 5-25 bucks - Sure they are used but most are in NEW condition -

    do measure your fave jersey or shirt for the armpit to armpit measure - because m l and xl labels on ebay are useless - if the buyer doesn't post exact measures - ask him what they are -

    In the past two week's I've bought about 20 - too much fun - !!!!

    I go to the nearest discount department store and buy athletic, breathable shirts. Heck of a lot cheaper than the LBS. The only place I slurge a bit is on the bottom end as I hate saddle sores.

    The wait for the sales part can be huge. Only jersey I have 2 of I got because of the full zipper. Think it was Motorola, but not sure and not at home right now. This was probable a $100 jersey 20 years ago. That is before teams resuffled and it was no longet in and more like $40. The quality over most $20 (at teh time) jerseys was very very real. The zipper action was smooth, that can be important if you ride in hte heat and are ziping and unzipping while riding. A little stick while standing is nothing, while riding at 20 MPH it can be a big deal.

    Sierratradingpost.com always has good deals/discounts. I wear bike jerseys for safety reasons - the brighter my shirt; the more likely drivers will see me, avoid me, and not kill me!

    I usually wear normal clothes rather than cycling clothes, but the jerseys I do have I've gotten at garage sales, bike swap meets and Goodwill type places. I don't think I've ever paid more than $5 for any of them.

    Good point. But why to buy a special bike jersey if a simple yellow T-shirt will do it?

    I'm having a problem with my wind/rain jacket. I like it, but it's too dark and I'm almost invisible in it. So, I'm looking for a reflective tape or something similar to put it on. See my thread.

    Because regular cotton t-shirts retain sweat and makes me uncomfortable - and I sweat a lot. I do wear nike/under armour performance tees sometimes (when it's not too hot), but the mesh vents in bike jerseys allows much faster evaporation and does a better job to keep my cool and dry.

    Now that I know how much my Frosted Flakes jersey annoys people I'll have to get a few more!.

    REI is a good place for bike clothing. Most of it is very unassuming.
