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

Primal is making the official RAGBRAI jerseys/bibs/short this year (maybe they have in the past, too, IDK). How is their quality and comfort for the price (bibs $70, jerseys $60)? My preferred bibs are the Pearl Izumi Attack series. How do they compare?

Can't speak to their bibs but I have several of their jerseys and love them. In my opinion they have good quality and consistent sizing. And I've never paid full price for one as they always have sales and if you get on their mailing list, they send discounts every so often.

My former team used them, they sucked. The jerseys were way too hot, the zippers broke, they had hanging threads everywhere. The shorts were OK, except they cut the sizes wrong and everyone who ordered XS got childrens size shorts.
