Yesterday one of the local LBS's here in Austin, Bicycle Sport Shop,
had a New Year's morning ride. The ride started at 9:30, but if you
showed up at 9 you got free coffee and bagels. Never one to miss out
on free food, I left the house about 8:10 and rode the 9.2 miles down
to the shop at a leisurely pace, arriving at 8:47.
They opened the door a few minutes before 9 and there was a huge
assortment of still warm bagels - yum. Right behind the bagel table
though, I noticed a long sleeve wool jersey. I was surprised to see
that it was a Nike. I was also surprised to see that it was on the
clearance rack, being that winter has just started. They were marked
down to half off and I wanted to take it away right then but the store
was not open for business on the 1st.
So, I went back at lunch today tried it on. It was size XXL and fit
great; definitely American cut unlike my XXXL Woolistic jersey that is
a tad tight. I bought it for the half off price of $49.99. I asked
if they had any more and they called the North store and indicated
that they also had an XXL over there, so I drove the 10 miles across
town and bought that one too at the same price. This is even cheaper
than they are available for on FleaBay, they're going for $54.99 on
So does anyone have any experience with these jerseys? The label says
100% Merino Wool and washing instructions are similar to the Woolistic
jerseys. They seem really nice. I am looking forward to trying them
out on my next ride.
I ride my bike, to ride my bike.
