Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Check it.


I just need two more jerseys to make the minimum. Forums don't fail me now! Come on!

I actually don't hate that. And considering how I normally feel about jerseys, that says quite a bit. A solid design that isn't excessively busy, and a small company with a big attitude. Good things.

That's what I was thinking. My wife probably wouldn't like that jersey.

I think it's one of the dumbest concepts I've seen in a very long time.

Whoever came up with this idea must not realize that cyclists often wear jerseys from pro teams to which they don't belong, and if they don't want to do that, an not "look like a fred," then there's always Primal and other companies that make jerseys with a lot more style.

Or do what I do and get a plain $16 jersey from Performance.

Each to his own but couldn't you have come up with a better example than Primal Wear? I would wear the orange and white design for sure.

The entire concept was born of Primal Wear envy.

Then why don't you get a Primal Wear jersey? Same price, way cooler.

Or why doesn't this company make jerseys that have the same edge as Primal Wear. At a slightly lower price.

The jersey I rock is the shop that helps foots the bill for my racing. I guess you could say that I'm "unattached" to paying entry fees.

Huh? You buy it because you want it or you don't. If I had money for a kit I would buy it, but since I don't I'm relegated to Performance brand $20 jerseys. I think you're assuming everyone thinks that the Primal Wear kits are cooler?

That jersey ain't bad at all, but I think the Poseur jersey I got still tops it, and I could race it too as I'm almost certain there is no sanctioned Poseur team

yeh Primal Wear is way too bizzy, bad lines. I'd sooner wear the album cover and if I did it'd look better than the jersey (cept my exposed bits)

You totally missed the point. This is a jersey for a racer who is not on a team (an "unattached rider"). You can't wear pro-team jerseys (or any team jersey if you don't belong to the team) to a race.

This is not a jersey for a guy who is just riding for fun.

That said, I'm an unattached racer and I don't have much interest in the jersey, but to each his own.

Then wear a Budwiser jersey. Or a Jellybelly jersey. Or a plain international orange jersey from Performance.

c'mon, mr. c. maybe people don't want to advertise for budweiser or jelly belly or whoever, and maybe they also want something a little more interesting than a solid color. or maybe they just like the unattached jersey?

jelly belly if you don't want to wear a pro-tour jersey? Isn't that even worse?

The kit is a joke... like those ****ty primal wear ones that noone buys. But this joke was made by someone who actually understands cycling and is therefore amusing.

The thing about these jerseys is that they're actually very unattractive.

I was going to accuse MrCjolsen of not having a sense of humor, but then he brings up Primal Wear and I realize he's just being ironic. We all know that nothing says "Max speed; 16mph" or "Do not follow: Makes frequent stops" like a Pink Floyd jersey. Well played, sir!

(+1 on Twin Six, however.)

Anyhoo, I'm biased because I like Carlos, but even if I didn't I'd still think these are handsome, understated kits and a fun concept. (Can I assume USADA has not yet banned "fun" from the peloton?) And I'll also note that he's not a "company." He's a "guy wanting to share a witty idea."

I may also be biased because he's using my site, Chicago Bike Racing, to help spread the word. Dig today's interview.
