I saw it in the rental store, does that count? was tempted to pick it up, probably will eventually, just wasn't in the mood for a cycling movie this week.

Hi Queenie :wave ,
Since I'm fat I don't like them either. Where do you get non-elastic bottom jerseys?

PS: If you arrange some ADV jerseys for us I'm totally in. :deal

I'm curious about this too/? The place I'm looking at has essentially 2 choices in fit = pro & club fits. The club fit says it fits non pro cyclists so I'm going with that.

I assume they have some form of elastic around the bottom because I've never seen a bicycle specific jersey that doesn't....

How would it not flap around in the wind, or chafe (hang down) at your thighs? I'm hoping they allow us to choose different "cuts" though, and like I said, let me get the design/prices/etc together first, then I'll post a new thread to get a list of buyers together. It looks like they may run into the 100 dollar range, but they look like a good quality jersey.

Here's their sizing charts-

Like I said, CLUB FIT looks to make the most sense.

Hiya Doc :wave

I wear this one, I have two of these...they're incredibly comfortable and they don't ride up. :thumb I not shaped the same as you fellas so I can't say if it would ride up on you. :dunno

With the 26t, I'm running a 34t inner. Works better than the 39t. :nod IF yer planning on running D/A, the smallest rings yer gonna get are 48t outers and 38t inners.

XTR cranks (M95X series) have an adaptor that you can run 110mm BCD rings, or you can get a compact crank from someone. Ritchey is still makin one that works with Octalink. Others are out for ISIS.

I'm workin this weekend... What's happening? :ear

Great story. I remember when he broke all the records in that crazy position.

How did his bike not break?

They ALL have to be the same fit?

Well ... I can always tailor them, I am starting to look like "the machinist"

Good luck building it up in your fantastic garage.

Hey everybody, Shuffler lives on Gay St.

Where's your french bulldog?

How much do you want for your RVT?

Flaco

Don't hate the player. Hate the game. I sold the RVT, dumbass.

Shimano 'cross brakes....a friend has a few sets from last year that he needs to unload. I had Paul brakes on my other bike...they were nice. I figure I'll try Shimano just because I can get them cheap.

Is there a cantilever brake cable stop at the left seatstay?

I'm not a framebuilder and can't comment on pinched chainstays...maybe Flake-O can because he's such an authority on everything.

Yeah, that's a canti cable stop back there...pretty cool little feature!

Might want to stay out of the bike shop for a while though, those things have a tendency to follow you home and make you consider weird things like selling motorcycles. :lol3

In other news: always wear your helmet. Face plant on the trails last night by me. :bluduh

My charmingly handsome face is going to have a bit of a rugged air about it for a few weeks, I'd guess. :lol3
