I have never had a team jersey before, I have some plain Giordanas and when I go on group rides, I wear a "fancy" Swobo or TwinSix jersey (they are both black and pretty plain). I will wear the team jersey, it was a gift and it is a nice quality.

So when I ride with you guys, will you call me a poseur to my face or behind my back?

Thanks, my wife bought it because I do have a Cinelli (two actually). It is a bit like a NASCAR car and I am kind of a plain Jane guy.

Sweet. I would never call you anything either to your face or behind your back. You pulled me around New Glarus so you will always have my respect and admiration

Liberty Seguros here.

meh, it's not Discovery, so it's a minor faux pas at worst.

Soon Rock will be the new Discovery of American cycling jerseys. Mark my word.

Man, if only my wife could find me a cool Team Arby's jersey, I'd rock it up and down the block.

I think it was nice that she respects your cycling enough to buy you something nice to make it more enjoyable. The fact that she knows what kind of bike you have earns her even more points in my book. If I were you I would wear it and be proud. It's not like she got you a fluffy sweater with kittens on it because you like cats.

Not that it matters what others think, but I have a feeling that the people you ride with that will make any negative comments are jealous on some level. I'm not saying they are jealous of the jersey itself, but the love and respect it symbolizes.
