Most bike jerseys serve as a means of wicking moisture away from your body, keeping you cooler. There is a balance between comfort and wicking. My jerseys are not tight, but provide good skin contact to keep the wind evaporating that sweat.

Bike Nashbar also has jerseys, but not as many as they used to.

Nike is getting out of the cycling gear business ... our LBS had all of their Nike stuff on sale for 50% off ... I bought all of my winter bike clothes that way.

Might want to look around.







I'd rather be sitting on my bike thinking about God than sitting in church thinking about my bike ...

I just checked. Look on Landsend.com under men's active wear. Then check to droplist for activity. They have a limited amount of cycle wear.

As for bicycle jerseys I found out there is no vanity sizing. They run small so be sure to check a size chart. Performance has some good priced jerseys. Twin Six has larger sizes. I got a good woman's jersey from Land's end for 25 dollars. It's nice.

Thanks ... I just couldn't see spending a lot of money and at $20 plus shipping I could not pass it up. Even though I was not able to get my pick, I still thought it was worth a chance.

I'll have to keep my eye open for what you did on yours ..... I did not think of that. I'm sure toward the end of outdoor riding season I might find a lot more of these in my area.

I know what you mean about the skinny guys and some of us on the plush side;-) LOL

Itís up to you on how snug it fits. But there are two jersey cuts: race and club. The race cut is for those skinny dudes with no fat on their bodies. The club cut is a little fuller and made for the average person. I think (and I could be wrong) that most jerseys sold at website are the club cut unless otherwise noted. This applies to road jerseys. The mountain bike jerseys are much looser. But if you wear a mountain bike jersey on your road bike, you will be laughed at. It just isnít done! We roadies are such snobs.

My advice on the jersey is to get cheap, bright ones! They must be bright so people (drivers) can see you. You spend the money on the best shorts you can afford. One of my favorite jerseys was only $20! I had to dig through a box of jerseys in bike shop, in the middle on nowhere, while I was on a ride. The shop was getting rid of lots of jerseys but it was worth the dig.

You did the right thing in getting a cheap jersey.

Do not look where you fell, but where you slipped.

How tight, snug, loose fitting should cycle jerseys be?

I ordered one last night on longscycle as a grab bag for $20.oo regular $135.00. I ordered an XL like my regular t-shirts.

Depending on the responses to this will determine if I did the right thing. It was a 1 day deal and I could not pass it up. LOL
