    Normally - just a regular cycling jersey and Fox Incline gloves (no pads).
  • 03-22-2009
    GTR-33
    Pearl Izumi or Mt Borah.

    Always full finger, always closeout.
    Last jersey I bought was at the grocery store, cheap. Before that, almost back in the 90's.
    Won one 2 winters back, leader's yellow in local series.

    Pearl Izumi gloves, usually just use a capilene, smartwool, or icebreaker T for a jersey.

    661 Comp gloves

    For jerseys, I prefer a loose fit trail jerseys or high performance T-shirts. Tight fitting cycling jerseys highlight my beer belly, hate that.

    Shorts - baggie trail shorts, tights are not for me.

    Swobo jerseys, Fox full finger gloves.

    Size 12 Fox full finger gloves, and wool jerseys whenever possible. I am running on two Ibex jerseys that I acquired through the PT clinic I work for. Love the fit, feel, and wools great ability to regulate body heat and keep the moisture off of my skin. Wool isn't cheap, but will last and doesn't retain the 'stank' most of the 'performance fabrics' do. Only gripe I have is when I store stuff in the back pockets the back of the jersey hangs low.

    Cheers,
    BFE

    I have really come to like wool jerseys such as swobo. They can be warm, can be cool and dont hold stink. Gloves at present are some fingerless fox gel numbers

    Surprisingly, Novara brand gloves from REI. I have big hands and they carry XXL's that are not too fat & sloppy. I get the least blisters and the fingers are actually long enough...great stretchy softshell fabric on the backs.

    This was after using Fox, Specialized, Pearl, and Performance stuff...I have 2 Novara pairs and may buy a new set for this season.

    Troy Lee Design XC or Fox Incline or Fox Sidewinder gloves, Castelli long sleeved jersey or when the temp gets up a Twin 6 Waltworks jersey.
    And when I wear a jacket it's a Gore Bike Wear Phantom jacket.

    Mostly Nike dry fit shirts. I think the tight cycling jerseys make you look like a bloody fruit loop. Pearl Izumi gloves

    Primal jersey and 661 Raji gloves. Best gloves EVER (and I ride rigid:D) and the jersey switches between two primals and some under armor shirts. Primals are awesome cause you can unzip them and let all the ladies see the chest hair............ :p
  • 03-22-2009

    I like ones with a long zipper so I can have more chest hair hanging out, especially if I do a roadie ride on my fixed gear.

    Jersey....usually long-sleeve wicking all year round. They absorb and disperse moisture/sweat, protect from sun (REI brand are SPF 50 iirc), help protect against poison oak, ticks, mosquitoes, tree branches and abrasions if/when I crash. Short sleeve version of same shirt if it is warm, but not too sunny where I will be riding that day.

    Deerskin. They are a lot faster than me, so I thought I could get some mojo.

    I also got tired of ripping/tearing "biking" gloves within a month or so. $20, last me about two years in all conditions.

    jeez, what a bunch of mountain bikers... :p ;)

    I usually wear my team/club kits either current or past, depending on the situation - bib shorts and SS jersey. Pockets are useful for carrying stuff, and I don't care for packs or bags. Gloves of choice for summer are Descente DNA XC. I've got 3 or 4 pairs I got cheaply.

    Nice USMC Jersey. I wear one of the Army Primal Wear Jersey's on occasion. It doesn't match my favorite set of bibs - then again, no jersey I own does. I have the black one too - but most people mistake it for a "Live Strong" jersey. I get "Lance" cheers when I wear that one. ;)

    I've often looked at the 661 Raji gloves - but I find the Inclines on clearance. They last a good long time for me.

    Mechanix gloves seem to be more durable and less expensive than cycling gloves.

    Wool tops.

    I wear the mechanix type gloves because I have a hard time finding cycling gloves that are big enough. For warm weather I cut the fingers off bike gloves with blown fingertips. I have a pair of Endura Dexter Windproof Gloves that are roomy and warm without too much bulk for cold weather riding, really like them. I have a pair of Endura MT 500 overboots as well that are sweet. Those Highlanders must be big.

    Schwag xxl jerseys with roomy neck and arm openings, long zippers always a treat.

    I wear old-skool leather-palm, crochet-backed fingerless gloves most of the time. They keep the hands grippy on the bars, protect palms in a fall, and I can get the camera out and shoot fast and easy, often while riding. Distinctive tan lines/dots. Chicks dig them.

    When it's warm, I don't really wear jerseys. Just shirts. Usually of wicking fabric. I don't ride any better in an official bike jersey, and the pockets in the back are useless under my backpack.

    Cooler or cold weather I sport wool, usually a jersey, because I got some on sale cheap.

    Whatever fits and doesn't stink :D

    I have been favoring my 3/4 sleeve Nema jerseys lately. I don't race so comfort is where it is at. For shorts, whatever baggies that fit, I do like my Fox Epic's.

    Baggies are torture. A slow, abrasive torture that tries to grab the back of the saddle.

    Tshirts are torture. A wet, soggy, water-boarding type of torture that follows you.

    I think the only redeeming quality of baggies is that they can endure through crashes.

    That and not looking weird.

    But I willing to look weird in order to escape torture.

    I'm pretty monogomous to Specialized gloves. I had some problems with numb hands and these helped a lot. Wider handlebars helped more but ... I still like my Specialized for anything saddles and gloves.

    Iron Maiden, full surface print.
    Royal shorts which are way impractical, no pocket even for a car key.
    Close-out Fox gloves again. I get holes in the findertips anyway.

    Borrowed bike for a National SS champs, for the heck of it.

    Wool
    Kucharik wool jerseys and summer motorcycle gloves on closeout. You can't get the wool jerseys cheap but as stated above they are cool in summer, worm in winter and dont stink; other types of jerseys suck in comparison and wool jerseys last long enough to make them worth the price to me. I live close enough to stop by the factory and pick up closeouts for a little cheaper.

    Jerseys: An old Prana ( I wish they still made them- ;-( ), Boure, an an assortment of ancient rag tag cheapo polypropylene thermal tops.

    Gloves: I just purchased a pair of mesh full fingered work gloves from Home Depot for $22.00. They were probably made in the same factory as the cycling specific types costing twice as much... Other than the logo, they are indistinguishable from most of the brands sold in a bike store.

    More and more, I'm getting burned out on the high price premium for outdoor recreation gear. The "Pataguci" effect has gotten way out of hand in the outdoor recreation retail industry. Unless there is a specific design or feature set in a piece of outdoor rec. gear that can't be replicated otherwise, I find myself more and more inclined to find a cheaper alternative- such as said gloves from the Home Despot.:eekster:
