Busted!: Being An Idiot
When a jersey looks this cool I see nothing wrong with pairing it with jeans.
You watch it will be all the rage. Bike jerseys worn with jeans. Just like the late 80s fad of "bike shorts" as fashion....Yikes! More camel toes than you could shake a stick at.
Another great thing about the Argyle jersey is the placement of the horizontal stripe. Right at nipple level. NO one wants to see dude nipples through a jersey. Way to go guys!
I did wear my new Twin-Six jersey during my hour spin tonight. Did an hour of what I call my Alpe D'Huez TT work out (Also known as the Alpe D'Moldy Basement work out). Start spinning easy for 10 minutes, then every 10 minutes you drop a gear, increasing tension. Usualy go from about 100 RPM to about 70 as it goes on. Finished with 10 minutes easy spinning. Listened to a new mix I got in the hopper. Hope to post tomorrow.
I noticed recently that I find myself wearing my Bikeman.com, Salsa and now my T6 duds even when I'm just training. I have some other gear, but always come back to the race and sponsor wear even when holed up in my stank basement.
I think this is the reason: When I'm out on the trail or road I love looking down and seeing my team kit. It motivates me to push a little harder knowing others have put some faith in me. I also like the idea of people seeing the kit and getting the names of stuff I dig out there.
When I'm on the trainer I like looking down, seeing the jersey or shorts, or spying my Salsa on the other side of the room. Next thing you know there's some giddy up in the legs. It also helps that the Bikeman and Twin-Six stuff is pretty freaking boss, and for me if I can't BE fast, I minds well LOOK fast. HA!
Of course it also helps to train in the race stuff so you know how certain items fit durng the long haul. What chaps your ass or rubs your pits. Don't want to find out 6 hours into a race that those new team shorts you got rub your "boys" like a cheese grater do you?
That's it. Gotta get some ZZZZZZZZZs.
