Jerseys

Can anyone recommend a type of jersey or a link to them that are in the same style and quality as a pro-team jersey but not a pro- team jersey. Thanks!

Visit the louis garneau site & read about thier high end jerseys. Then, armed with your newly found knowledge of material & structure of what a pro-jersey is, shop around all the internet stores. Be prepared to spend $70-$100 or more.

Hit up Winner's and score a half decent Dri-Fit (or the equivilent) shirt for $10 or so. Spending $70-100 for a shirt is just silly.



Err.. sorry, not sure if Ireland has Winner's... but any cheapo wicking material shirt shouldn't be too expensive.

Hmmm.... check the house brands at Pricepoint.com and performance.com. They'll be solid colors, but they have zippers and back pockets. Honestly, all we need are the zippers since most MTBers wear hydration packs.

Sure, if you're racing... shoot the moon. Hopefully someone else will be fronting the bill for you, sooner than later.
