Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Would you sponsor me?

I'd sponsor me. HARD.
this is me after sunday's north fork century on Eastern long island in new York.
The jersey is a custom one I made for the law firm I work for.

Mt. Borah. I think it fits fine. It might look bad in the pic because it had moved up a few inches.

If I ran a custom jersey company whose slogan was, "Our jerseys will make you look like poo poo.", then, yes, I'd sponsor you.

I think it's more that it looks really loose in the sleeves. Wear a tighter jersey. Show off those scrawny cyclist arms.

right sleeve is a little flappy, but the jersey looks good to me. And no, I wouldn't sponsor you.

LOL at both comments.

The design is nice but I agree with the others, the sleeves are too loose.

I Have a nicer tan showing that I was outside riding in the sun more often!

I need sponsors to get a new bike since I want one with no real reason behind it.

I need sponsors too

You thinking about suing some of these guys for the Personal Injuries they've directed your way or do the P.I.s have to be purely accidental?

Carbon Felt bike>>>gazing out into the horizon pose>>>jersey>>>arm definition

To be fair though, better fitting sleeves could help show off the arm definition more. Well, if it's there in the first place, which I'm not sure about.

Just so there's no confusion, I wasnt posing! One of the people I rode with took that. I thought it was kind of funny since it looks like a pose. Before any more BFers get their lycra panties in a bunch, Nothing about this post is taking myself seriously. I'm not actually soliciting sponsorship. Unless somebody wants to sponsor some hairy cat5 for no reason,.

And yes the jerseys arms are a little wide. The rest fits fine. Note that I cannot specify sleeve diameter when I order jerseys. If anyones at fault, it's me for having scrawny arms. I only have one jersey that fits me really right - it's by a company called Sportful, which i cant find anywhere really.

AND, carbon felts FTMFW.
