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)

Looking for a bike jersey

OK, I was wondering if anyone knows of a company that makes decent bike jerseys. I have been looking for a while but all the new jersey are way to flashy. To state it simply, I would be embrassed to wear in public. The old school jerseys are pretty sweet, but would like to be informed of something new.

Now, I would ask this on the roadie forum, but they would tell me to get a bib or something I would never be able to live down. Have you seen those primal wear jersey, damn they're ugly.

Thanks illin

I go for the atheletic sweat wicking shirts. The flashiest one I have is an orange nike running shirt. The others are gray, blue, and white.

Really? I dated a girl that looked a lot like her. Weird.

Anyway, I also rock the sweat-wicky running shirts. Nike ones are nice, and I got a grey one, black one and white one on sale at Dick's for $10 each or something.

I do want a wool jersey for winter, though, but I don't poop hundred dollar bills.

I think Endura makes one called the Halcyon or something for around $85.

100% Wool? Check.
Full zip hoodie? Check.
Thumb holes in sleeves? Check.
Choice of one heinous colour scheme? Check.
Embarrassing "Know Your Rights" embroidery in repulsive spice rack font on the back? Checkaroo.

I picked up some $30ish dollar blank ones from velowear dot com (voler). I'm not into looking like a Nascar, but still needed some jersey pockets.

This plain colored Swobo jersey is high on my list. They told me it has elastic at the arms and waist.

Yeah, I wear a nike one. It's a decent long sleeve jersey and awesome at keeping me cool in coolish weather, but not freezing. I don't have a jacket though. I should get one.

Yep. *sigh*. I've been thinking of the Portland Cycle Wear full zip trainer. Probably a serious logistical nightmare but a BF SS/FG group buy would be sweet.

Yes it would be. I love my Velospace shirt, but I bet Gregg had a lot of trouble.

Here's my fav, it's local though. http://www.sellwoodcycle.com/merchandise.htm I like the new style.

Also wouldn't a more pertinent message for the back of that messenger hoodie be "know my rights." With the implied 'you should.'
