Most excellent jersey

This was just too silly to pass up. Bought it as my 'lost 25lbs' reward. People laugh at me now. Wait til they see me wearing this!





Anyone else wear non-serious biking outfits?

I love non-serious biking gear. It seems to really bother some people, which makes it that much more fun to wear.

This is about as non-serious as I get.

lol groth. I'm going to be upgrading into that jersey fairly soon

A LBS has Dr Suess "Thing 1" and "Thing 2" jerseys, I keep threatening my wife with them.
Oh boy... I really like Dr. Seuss, but not Thing 1 and Thing 2! They are however my wife's favorites and I'm glad I've been able to avoid that jersey Clearly we ended up with the wrong wives!

I have been wanting a crazier jersey. As a music lover and nerd I have always thought about getting a Rush jersey but the Black Cat Fireworks or Garfield jerseys I saw years ago were also contenders. If they made a cycling jersey based on the greatest film ever "The Room" written, directed and starring Tommy Wiseau (most actors can barely act, he can barely act and also write and direct a film), I would have at least one.

Like the Hi-Viz part.

But, if I got the Old Fart jersey, my wife might kill/divorce me.

I too have the Old Fart jersey but its cycling related. "Old Fart Cycling Team" is on the front and back.

Passive aggressive non-serious. The GF bought it for me, but I only where it when I tour. Never when road riding. On tour, it's o.k. to be somewhat dorky. One person thought it was a real place, and I have noticed plenty of other people look at me like I am a foreigner.

I don't have a team to represent so I just go with what I like.

I am beginning to think my idea of licensing all sorts of images for jerseys isn't such a bad one. How about a "Different Strokes" jersey with an image of Gary Coleman saying "What chew talkin' 'bout, Willis"? Or George Jefferson yelling "Damn it, Wheezie!" Jan Brady saying "'Marsha! Marsha! Marsha!" Archie Bunker yelling "Stifle yourself, Meathead!"

This is one I will eventually have. I freely admit that I get on the cranky surly at times.



And then there is this one.



I do have this one.
