Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Novara Fixie Bike Jersey

http://www.rei.com/online/store/Prod...cat=REI_SEARCH


REI needs to offer a fixed gear bike, would probably be a good value for the $$.

Still waiting for Kogswell to furnish details on the hinted at new fixed gear that's going to come in a 61.6cm frame size!

God, bike "fashion" is so pathetic sometimes.
Ooo, offset racing stripes on a mechanic shirt.
Circa 19 9 frickin 5.

somebody at REI's fashion department needs to get a beating with a Teva sandal and Nalgene bottle.

A real ******* would wear a shirt like that. Probably with some cargo shorts that were too big. Accesorized with an american chopper hat.

I wonder what makes it a fixie jersey. Do they sell an internally geared three-speed shirt?

Oooh a polyester "jersey" I get mine at yardsales, and call them "shirts".

Forget fixie, what is it about that shirt that makes it bicycle specific???

"Boxy body styling is perfect for on or off the bike--you'll be the envy of the shop guys"

I love my shirts to fit "boxy". I feel pretty in a "boxy" shirt.

I think that is the funniest thing since Cheney shot that rich Texan. Comedy gold. Can't explain why.

im pretty sure it will be easy to steal just like everything else in that store. even if they put a fixed bike in there some one will bank with a new free bike off of them.

Who the hell is Buzz? They would sell a lot better if the nametag said "Sally", "Nancy", "Mary", or "Annabelle".

I think 'fixie' is referring to the fact that it's a mechanic style shirt. What does a mechanic do? They FIX your bike. It's not rocket science.

I have almost this exact jersey. 100% Merino wool, cut good and long, zips all the way down, breathes great yet keeps me toasty.


I got it at ****ing Express for fourteen dollars.
