Over the past year there have been several questions about University of Michigan cycling jerseys. The Michigan cycling team is taking orders now for jerseys, shorts, bibs, etc. Orders must be received by November 15. For info, go to the team's website: www.umich.edu/~cycling/
Is the cycling team as lousy as the football team? :-) (nm)RhodyRider

I guess two losses is lousy by Michigan standardsms

I am not a great football fan. But three years in Ann Arbor gave me some affinity for Michigan football. True Michigan football fans would consider two losses and a less-than-top-10 ranking to be lousy. Given the football record of my other alma mater (Duke), I'm satisfied with Michigan's record this year (so long as the team beats Ohio State). It all depends upon your perspective.
Well, my perspective happens to be as a U of Iowa alum...RhodyRider

...(class of 1987), so I feel confident in suggesting that the Wolverine gridders are fairly crappy this season!
:-))
(Let me gloat a little, Iowa hadn't beaten UM in the "big house" in 12 years.)
But I am totally with you, I truly hope UM beats holy hell out of OSU.

I do not know first hand (I am an alum who never has seen the kit other than in pics on the team site). However, the team site says that the shorts and bibs will be have yellow (maize?) lettering to match the jerseys as opposed to last year when the lettering on the shorts and bibs was white. I assume that otherwise, things will be the same.
Thanks. Glad to hear lettering will match.sidley

My Michigan bibs and shorts were the best gift I ever received. Nothing better than riding through Central Park and hearing the occasional "Go Blue" as you ride bye. I highly recommend getting a uniform.

BTW - I've got the same uniform depicted on the team website. However, the photos don't give the unis justice they are really nice. The backs have some more sponsor logos, another "M" and "The University of Michigan" written underneath.

I'm wondering if my wearing Michigan stuff will only incite the Ohio natives to increased levels of anti-cyclist behavior. The last thing I need is something to REALLY piss off some hill-jack, trailer trash Bucknut who already hates cyclists.

OTOH, the OSU f*ckeyes did beat us last year, for the first time in what, 12 years? Maybe they'll be nice to me on the road. Or not.

Ah, screw 'em. I gotta fly my colors. Let 'em do what they want. I'll just have to carry bigger rocks.
Will Ed Martin pay me $280,000 to wear one? **Niwot
