Xc riders!! you wear fr jerseys?

I know many topics like this has been started but I wanted to start another.

I don't ride fr or dh, but I like buying fr type jerseys. Anyone else do this?

What kind of jerseys do people wear for xc?

At jenson they are selling a fr type jersey but they were sold out of the xl skulls ones.

http://www.jensonusa.com/store/produ...Jersey+06.aspx

So I found this jersey at an mx store. With every size and color.

http://motorhelmets.com/htm1/apparel...ox-hc-2006.htm

they even have the fox dirtpaw model that matches in color!!

http://motorhelmets.com/htm1/apparel...s-fox-2006.htm

I know these are mx jerseys. But they work for fr, so why not xc!!!

I know its about the ride and not the clothes, but I love getting shweet jerseys!!

So what kind of jerseys do you xc riders use?

The only time a longsleeve is ok for xc is if it's cold out or if it's a wet sloppy mess out, and in those conditions, it is best to not ride in the first place. You will look like a fool in any other condition out there.

What I'll do is pull my sleeve up to my elbow, because on the dh part after I get too the top of the mountain my sweat makes me cold. Then I'll roll my sleeves back down. Most xc riders wear like tights and solid colored sleeveless jerseys. I wear baggy byu shorts and fr jersey.

I forgot to mention- I ordered the navy blue jersey and the blue dirtpaws.

I wear the same for 'XC' roach jersey and ripped baggy jeans, not typical XC kit lol, but it works for me.

As i said, just ride, no one cares what you wear really.

I can't believe how many people I see wearing jeans while riding.. at least for xc, get some padded shorts. I have a pair of fox sorta baggy shorts with the chamois lined pad. Lycra is for road weenies, but at this point I wouldn't even wear it on the road. T shirts or a plain jerseys work fine in warm weather.

I just wear plain ol' cotton t-shirts...with lycra shorts. Don't like the baggy feel, with or without a liner.

I wear whatever isn't dirty... or at least passes the sniff test. That's only for tops... for bottoms, I definately make sure it's clean! Nasty things happen when you rewear dirty cycling shorts.

I wear whatever I like. Regardless of "how" I ride. I hate spandex, I don't wear it. I like baggy shirts, I wear baggy tops. If anyone has a problem with it, they can leave bc

I wear loose fitting shirts that wick because they dont make race fitting jerseys that my 52" chest, 17" neck and 16" arms will fit into without being too constricting. I wear spandex shorts because I want to as well as the wicking and muscle support and those who have a problem with that are just control freaks who are too dam insecure to let others feel free to wear what works best for them without getting all upset about it. like the friggin fashion police or something.
if you dont want to see my snake and eggs dont look at my crotch!!
my favorite shirts are C9 stuff from Target because they wick the best( way better than coolmax) and are cheap.( I average between $7 and $22 per shirt , depending on if its on sale or not) I wear either Canari or Nashbar shorts. both are made by the same folks right here in the USA

What’s wrong with wearing Jeans?!?

I usually wear jeans when its chilly...if not then some baggy skater shorts. As for tops I have a long sleeved baggy jersey...but if it's really warm I'll just wear a regular t-shirt.

I'll usually wear a T-shirt style jersey, made from the same material as road jerseys. They're comfy and last longer than cotton shirts, but they do get stinky fast. On the bottom, it's bib shorts with some light nylon baggies over top. Mmmmm. Baggies. If it's cold, on go the arm warmers and leg warmers.

you can use cream all you want, but my seat hurts like crazy if I ride for more than 30 minutes without some padding in the shorts.

I use a breatheable FR jersey most of the time and it works great. I only use my XC jersey on really hot days.

I wear longsleeve Under Armor type shirts on all my rides . I live in an area with at least 350 sunny days a year , and I work on the water . The last thing I need is more exposure to the sun . If that makes me look like a fool , it's fine with me . I've never really cared about what people think of my looks anyway .

Or if you happen to be riding in northern California where there is a TON of poison oak. NoF3ar, this includes where you are - if you react to poison oak, I would ride with long sleeves (and most folks around here do), and would use Tecnu right after a ride to get the poison oak oil off of your skin.

The long sleves are a layer of protection from keeping those damn leaves off of you.
