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)

OT sorta.. Eco-Friendly Bike Jerseys?

I posted this to the general cycling forum, and haven't gotten any responses. I was thinking some of you guys & gals might be a little more hip to this kind of stuff.

Does anybody know of source for eco-friendly bike jerseys? Something like recycled PET, or sustainable materials (bamboo, wool), and made in the U.S (where I live) would be a plus too.

I found this one (recycled PET & made in the U.S.A) but I was wondering what my other options might be.

Thanks

They use mostly recycled merino wool and are handmade in Vancouver, BC. Cool retro designs too

<rant>Some people (not necessarily PluperfectArson) have the notion that choosing or adopting an eco-friendly (or fair trade, etc) product or practice is making a commitment to a certain lifestyle--as if it requires them to quit their job and get rid of all their worldly possessions. I don't think that's the case. So choosing the eco-friendlier alternative (like, say, Pedro's Bio-Grease or Phil Wood Biolube) can have a reduced negative environmental impact without lowering one's quality of life. And if that's the case, then why not do it.</rant>
