    i was very much afraid of this happening...
    i ordered it from broadway cycle! hmm...and they didnt tell me anything about delays or unavailability either! i placed the order last week.

    in terms of scotch? Hells yea... :blech:
    For me ..... underwear..I prefer the all natural cotton.
    Athletic wear, I'll play with performance fabrics, but I don't have a closet full of coolmax or anything like that.
    Some poly, neoprene, long and short sleeves, it's all in the layers. As it is I don't even like wearing a form fitting jersey by itself.

    Re: man made fibres. I stopped wearing cotton for riding a couple years ago, it just gets too sweaty and doesn't dry. I'd love to wear nothing but merino wool, or better still, alpaca, but that stuff is $$$. I have a bunch of polyester "microfiber" shirts, mostly cheap ones from MEC. At first, I found they made me really stinky, but not any more. Initially, I figured I had just gotten acoustomed to my own stench, but I'm pretty sure that's not it. I have no idea what would have changed, but something has. Maybe the biological critters living on your skin have to come into balance with the materials you wear on a day to day basis?

    I do the same, buy wool when i can afford it and suppliment the rest of my wardrobe with cheap MEC stuff. as for the smell issue, i think i have just gotten used to stinking. my family and friends haven't said anything yet, so...

    for those of you who are more into a patch idea than a wool jersey, what do you think of something like this:



    it's made by the same girl/woman/chick who made my modified knickers from dickies workpants. perhaps i can ask her to make a custom one that with text like "toronto fixed / single" or "fixed in toronto" or "operator is a n00b" or whatever...

    Something doesn't seem right about that but I can't quite put my finger on it...

    Another option available is to buy a batch of generic cycling jerseys off the net (for around $40 per or less) and then get some cool silk screening treatment done locally. Juxtaposition of techy shirt design plus grungy stenciling could be good.

    We could use "newbie" if you prefer. joking (even though you're a FG newb). uh, yeah, so what are people's opinions on that style of patch? screened vs embroidered.
