Ever since signing up for he race yesterday, it’s pretty much all I’ve been thinking about. I’ve got bike on the brain in a way I’ve never experienced before. I went to my cycling class yesterday (bike is still trapped in the shop till the insurance settlement comes through and I can free it so I’m stuck in indoor cycling classes) and dreamt of racing through the finish line during each pedal.
My brain has flitted off wondering if an XC bike is my best option for my Iceland trip too…might be a better idea to do some inland mountain bike touring versus trying to cram a perimeter tour in two weeks.
On top of all those gears spinning through my head, I’ve just spent the past hour trying to find the coolest (read: strangest) jerseys I can find so I have something sweet to wear for all of this. I know looking cool doesn’t matter a whole lot in this, but it’s fun to try and imagine myself decked out in something rad while I whiz around those tight curves.
If anyone knows of an awesome company making interesting cycling kits, please pass it along.
So far, here are a few contenders:
This one is crazy expensive, but I love the simplicity
Love the tongue-in-cheek of this and the nod to the power of self propulsion
Sadly, this is sold out.
It would look so rad with this Ritte racing frame:
This is amazing except for the price and the fact at they seem to only make women’s clothing in pink.
This is what I’m going to look like at mile 30 anyway.
This is a sweet jersey from Fyxo
Interesting kits from Primal Wear
I’d be a total poser in this because I don’t even like Pink Floyd thaaaaaat much, but crap, this is a sweet design!
Bob Bike Shop won’t let me take any images from the site, but there are tons of good jerseys on there.
Anyhow, I’ve got plenty of time to find the coolest kit out there!
