Does 'Organic Athlete' fit the bill ?

Dave is the expert there......

raven i have slapped people for stating in much more vague term's i am a triathalete, i can't swim for start's! and such a twisted sport should not be mentioned on this sector of the forum again :wink:
and as i wish to be in the saddle for 4 hours plus when i wear them i'll give them a miss, my club short's are cheaper and sooooo comfy i'm not going to bother with them again because i may well be an off shape 8)

I've been looking to do a jersey that is generically "vegan" themed just to get the word out on our Boston fun rides. I find the Organic Athlete gear a bit over the top.

Anyone know if any of the online jersey shops are non-sweatshop and worth our patronage?

i knew suggesting the tri shorts might not be such a good idea :)

(i personally like that they're shorter and i do like them on short rides)

Eh? Over the top? What do you mean?

As for shorts, i always wear two pairs.. Base layer is a pair of Sugoi's, which i find to be the most comfy, then the 'splasy' outer layer. ;)

Best of both worlds!

And yes, tri is a dirty word.......

Short shorts ?

Whats that all about ? :shock:

Words not to be mentioned on the cycling forum.....

Tri
Triathlete
Swim
Run
Multisports
Short shorts
Sleeveless
umm, thats it ?

Although they can be mentioned in a derogatory way, as in "he had a sleeveless top on, and looked like a triathlete" :shock:

or

"He fell off on an easy corner, just like a triathlete"

:shock:

We don't really dislike them. We just think they are funny ! :lol:

errr, somehow I think I would be best to avoid this thread, but Dave, any word on the replacement of the OA shorts with the sewing problems? I'm not sure how much longer mine are gonna be rideable and I never heard anything back from them.
