50+ jerseys are in the mail!

Well, almost. As soon as my wife returns with the car I'm going to the post office!
Jerseys, long and short sleeve, jackets and vest, shorts and bibs, all on the way.

I spent the morning stuffing envelopes. My daughter went away for the weekend to look at Long Beach State, so I got no help

But everything came up even! I'm very happy about that. I seem to be error free this time around.

Sorry this took so long. I had no idea the Post Office would be so slow delivering envelopes. I'll be smarter next time.

Don't forget to post your photos. The first one who does should start a new thread.

I'm wearing the wrong glasses and saw the thread title as "50+ jerseys are in the mall". Cripes, I thought, Someone stole and marketed our design?

Whooooohooooo!!!!!!!!! Thank you Curtis! No problem with the timing, just glad you got back from Jamaica in time and didn't spend all the jersey money there.

Thanks Curtis,

Good to hear! When I get my 50+ shorts I'll kit-up with my 50+ jersey and try to get my wife to take a photo or two.

Your hard work and design genius are appreciated!

Yeah, college gets in the way of the really important things. BTW, it's not Long Beach State. Technically, it's Cal State Long Beach but no one calls it that there either - it's simply The Beach. My son will graduate from there next year - right smack in the middle of the worst economic environment in decades. Talk about timing.

Looking forward to the jacket. I'll be posting a pic.

Mine arrived all the way on the East coast of Long Island!!
Fit is great, I was concerned I had ordered the wrong size.
Just in time for the unseasonable coldest week yet this year, won't get to wear it.
Friday I had on a short sleeve with a wicking shirt underneath. Always the way isn't it.

Thanks Curtis!

Just a word of warning to those that will have a 50+ jersey for the first time

They need gentle running in. Don't just go out and do a 50 miler on it first time out.

Put it on and make certain that it is not creased on the back- Sit in the armchair and get a glass or cup of whatever you fancy by the side of you. Sit there for 30 minutes to ensure that the material is stretching to the form that it is surrounding. Then it is time for some gentle exercise. Wear it down to the Pub for your usual 4.76 litres of local beverage and stagger home.

Then tomorrow- you can finally introduce it to the bike. But watch out-Those jerseys are made for riding so don't do a ride of longer than 8 hours first time out- You may regret it later.

Got my jerseys in today's mail. One for me, the other as a surprise 50th birthday present for my main riding buddy. They look great! Too bad it's going to be 40 degrees with a chance of snow tomorrow. Thanks again for all of your hard work to give us the opportunity to ride in these cool jerseys! Curtis, you are a gentleman and a scholar.

There was a thread in "Road Cycling" titled "What are your favorite online stores? I vote curtis.corlew.com. The look completely beat my expectations. Very nice!

Thanks Cutis
