What is your favorite jersey you wear now and why.

Well, mine is a Fastrack jersey which is the elite local shop.

The only thing that makes it good is that everyone waves to you.

If you wear anything else, besides Eschelon's (local team), then you get nothing.

That's a sad reason, but true.

I'm ready for the jersey I'm making. I'll love it for lots of reasons.

Nike cycling jersery - solid orange-red color - boring. I normally don't care for Nike stuff, but this thing has big pockets, a zipper that doesn't catch on the material, and I don't remember what they call the fabric, but it's the lightest, most comfy, best wicking stuff I've tried.

I have only one jersey with a full length zipper. Riding through the sweatbox of a Memphis summer - it is my favorite. Beyond that no favorites, just one that I hate because the back pockets are too small to be of much use.

Warm when its cold, cool when its hot. Full zip, huge pockets. I also have Mapei Belgian champion's jersey in same fabric.
That would be funny if it came with a beer belly. nmKristin

If something makes you curious, it does not "beg the question".

"To beg the question" is a specific term used in rhetorical debate. It means you have asked a question you logicvally have no right to expect an answer to- you are "begging" for something you did no earn. The clasic example would be asking somebody "Do you still beat your wife?" when in fact you have no evidence that the person EVER did so.

The fact that its become a common (mis)usage makes it all the more annoying, as its a sign people don't pay much attention to logical rhetoric any more- as if politcs today didn't already show that to be so. It does not make it an accepted usage.

I had no idea how to use that word. Meaning I'm not smart.

I just tried to think of a word that seemed perhaps correct, I was wrong.

Sorry. On the bright side, people did understand the real question.

My favorite is a Jelly Belly team jersey. It fits me perfect, is very comfortable and has bright colors. Louis Garneau jerseys are also very comfortable, and I've got several of their "flag" jerseys I like a lot. Voler jerseys also get high marks, and I've got several of their "map" jerseys of various countries.

My high-vis orange jersey from Pace, available here.

I like to wear it off the beaten path where I really, really want to be seen, Tioga pass, Mt. Hamilton, Lake Berryessa area, etc. In Yosemite I had two people compliment me on it (one ranger, one motorist) saying they could see me for miles, and around Berryessa I had a Cali "redneck" say the same thing.

I don't wear it around town as much. ARPs like to tease me about it.

I always get great workouts in it. You can't leave the house in full zebra stripes and not ride like a madman.

Dude, when's the jersey gonna be ready??? Can't wait to see it!!!! Good luck! Was fun doing a communal design, group effort kinda thang...

Once the order is in then it takes 8 weeks, but....

I'm having a slight problem.

They need camera ready art for the cross with the chain ring.

Any thoughts on where we can get that. I just wanted a slightly better than simple cross with the chainring, but have no idea where to get the images.

I think they could work it up as long as I gave it to them. Meaning, they need some picture of a cross to use and some image of a chain ring.

I would have thought a standard design program they had might have that kind of stuff, but they wanted me to give them something if I had it or it may cost money.

In any case, I'm going to do it, just need to find the images or art.

I can't believe you people think this is a good idea. Why don't you just put run me off the road on the back of a jersey? You can puncuate it with PRO LIFE. Yeah nothing like bringing political or religous beliefs into your sport. Why not a jersey with an elephant on it or a donkey or a buddah or a swastica or satanic cross? What would you say to somebody that had a satanic cross on a jersey? That's it, I'm gonna make a jersey with a satanic cross on it, anybody want one. I not going to apologize for these remarks. I find it offensive that you are allowed to continue to bring this subject up in this forum. I think the jersey is a bad idea. I just hope that people don't start associating cyclists with christians. Maybe instead of spending a lot of money on some lame jersey you should donate the money to educating at risk kids or something. If anybody cares to explain to me why this is a good idea you can reach me at Please do not reply here this site is for cycling and the religion of cycling.

It's all about the Pearl Izumi Ben & Jerry's jersey. I've met more people and started more conversations over that jersey. And it was worth it for the look on her mom's face when the little girl in the middle of Bethesda, MD, yelled "Look! Cows!"

Must wear the matching socks, of course...

The Haul'n Ass Race Team. The jersies aren't fancy but I love the team and the guys I ride with are just a great bunch of guys and they are talented riders to boot.

The pictures are available at Email the webmaster to purchase jersies and shorts.

Couple of my favorities

1st Very-y-y cheap ($9)jersey from ALDI (but very convinient in hot (up to 40°C) weather despite short zip and single pocket due to CoollMax and mesh back

2nd Not so cheap but Goretex Pro with CoolPower - very aero (20% Lycra) and cool looking, but unusable above 25°C, as CoolPower is not so cool in hot.

Is it possible to include several pictures directly into message? It seems that I have seen such messages before, but I don't know how to do it.
