Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Go to a bike store and you can try them on.

Guys who only wear sleeved jerseys never take their shirts off or wear tank tops in public.

And if they do, they look sillier than you'll ever look in a sleeveless jersey.

My arms look good, imo...not too thin not bulky either. I'm actually wearing a sleeveless shirt now that I just wore to the gym.

I just won't wear them when riding...I stopped doing that about 4 weeks after I started riding.

Check out the online shops that sell tri-gear and you will find "arm-coolers" and "leg-coolers". They are a mesh material that keeps the sun off the skin but allows air to circulate through. They really work.

TYR makes a limited line of tri clothes. during the summer they have a warehouse sale at their Huntington Beach main location. Pretty inexpensive.

I happen to disobey several of those rules. Without sleeves should be more aero. Air up the pits would be refreshing. I have marked tan lines, and summer is approaching. Should I start hitting the group rides sleeveless?

curls are for showing off in the gym shower. real men dont care about how big biceps are.

real men do squats. i should have known you would request to see men flexing/hard.

Yeah my tan lines are pretty bad and wouldn't mind evening it out a bit. I already have an extremely bad leg tan line and to top it off since i'm bald i have the Ionos vents tanned onto my head. Top of my head looks like tiger stripes.

Road bikes require sleeves, it's in the manual.
