    what do you guys think/do you guys ride with jerseys and or kits? talking about on track bikes.

    would/do you guys wear them on short, long distance, just jerseys on top, cycling shorts under jeans, ect how do you guys do it?

    BUT my real question is, what do you wear? i really dont want to wear a team jersey unless i was on that team.... i dont want to wear champion jerseys like i see some roadies weearing polka dots or yellows as i pass them. help?

    i always wear a kit when riding, usually just plain one color assos, nalini, castelli, jerseys with black bibs etc. Do have some team jerseys though, don't wear them too much, just if a jersey comes out once i a while i like, i tend to buy it.

    i don't get the cycling shorts under jeans thing, guess it's a typical fixed gear ''it's not cool to look like a roady, omg people can see the shape of my pipi insecurity thing'' ?

    If you could help design it, that would be great, i dont have really great photoshop skills.

    So if any of you guys have a design in mind, send me a photoshop file or a JPG I can post them in some sort of voting thing, and we can all vote on what would be the best design.

    No no, it's totally cool to wear kit while grocery shopping, or to walk around anywhere looking like you have rickets because your look cleats slip on everything.

    How's THAT for sarcasm?

    bad, because i wear normal clothes when grocery shopping.

    i see too much kids wearing jeans when they go on a long ride and it's def not because they might go grocery shopping somewhere along the ride. Just because they think its not cool to wear a kit, typical fixie thing, whenever i ask, do you go to the gym wearing jeans and a flannel shirt aswell, they look at me like i'm crazy. the bib pretty much loses all purpose when under a pair of jeans. if you live a long way from a store and go there cycling ok, but i dont get this cycling clothes are not cool thing most fixie kids have.

    For commuting i also really dont get it, you can just bring a pair of boxers and a pair of paints in your bag and change in the restroom, why would you want to wear a sweaty bib under your jeans all day? seems silly to me.

    Just to add a quick question to this thread. I just got my first pair of cycling shorts (bib? it doesnt have the suspenders), and I've been told that it's really unsanitary to wear more than once. Completely understood.

    Is it ok to wear more than one ride in a day? say I go for an hour long ride. Take them off, do what I need to do there, and then put them back on for the ride back.
    Is that ok?

    sure, just make sure whenever you go home you wash them as quick as you can (goes for all cycling clothes) otherwise after some weeks they can stay smelly even after washing.
