Help me select a new commuting jersey - must be bright & look cool :-)

Postby MichaelB » Fri Oct 19, 2018 10:41 am

A while ago (Oct 2016), I got to test some jerseys from Monton Sports , and one of the jerseys that I use for commuting (Flourescent Cheetah) has, after much wearing & washing finally starting to need replacement.

I've had trouble finding something that I'm ;
1- happy with from a styling point of view (don't like plain Hubbard options),
2 - features (prefer full zip and the wider armband elastic) and full zip,
3 - in my size (sometimes, the stock of my size isn't available or they just don't suit - e.g. the Solo range only go up to XL ?)
4 - are a sensible price. I'll pay up to $100, but not the $180 + MAAP, Blacksheep etc silly price land.

Three of the designs that I like are

Love to hear some other suggestions

What about a slightly different jersey from Foska?

https://www.foska.com/cycling-jerseys/road/mens-road/

I ride in the Baked Bean one and I am sure I get wider passes! Ha ha

I had this one to...kind of appropriate for commuting! https://www.foska.com/test-dummy-road-c ... ersey.html

8) have to order a couple of them. Baked beans looks very good, they need a vegemite.

how about?

you can find that jersey and other less outrageous but equally colourful at
https://racmmer-cycling.aliexpress.com/store/1052221

It is less than $20 shipped, It does not feel like a $20 jersey, sure it is not the same quality as the $100+ name jerseys I own, but comparable or better than most of the sub $100 jerseys in my wardrobe including my BNA Monton.

Size wise at 184cm 80kg 98cm chest 80cm waist and preferring race fit I went M, bad move fits across my chest but short, I really could do with a L (an XL would probably be too loose for my taste).

After 65kms today including 16km TT and a few showers

@nickobec - I'll certainly have a look. Like the pink flamingo's, but not enough to buy & wear one !! Sleeves look good and match the style I'm after.

re the Foska jerseys - I like a lot of them and they are good designs, but not in my taste to wear. Thanks for the suggestions though !!

Like this:

They are nice, but not bright enough for early morning visibility. Remember consuming a few of those, with Lagavulin being a favourite !

The Bruichladdich is a bright blue and noticeable and they have an Arran jersey which has orange writing.

I'm from Melbourne so no issue with black here 8)

Rarely ride in the heat of the day aka full sun ie peak UV time, most my rides are over by 9:30am, so no. So no, to this or any other jersey.

Thanks for some great suggestions.

Cycology have released their 'Miles are my Meditation' in Red, which looks good.

This one made me laugh...

If this Racmmer one had slightly different colours ..

Then there is this one that I'll probably get

I saw some Monton jerseys on Sportspursuit if you want the same look - pricing was under $100 from memory.

Don’t like a site that I have to sign up to to see their gear - hence don’t do Sports Pusuit (prices are same direct from Monton anyway).

Saw the PF sale, but nothing in my size for what I like :-(

Most of the stuff on sale is XXS or XS.

Just a tad too small for me. Like waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too small. :|

Ah, I think you misunderstood....it's not for Tradies, it's to make Tradies think that the rider they are passing is actually one of them, so they don't close pass you :-)

"Stay safer on your commute by mimicking the clothing of choice for Tradies.... the world's most rampant perpetrators of close passes! All-Italian fabrics, a relaxed fit jersey and the World Class Grand Tour chamois bely this kits working class roots"
