I've been biking for most of my life for fun and recreation, mode of transportation, etc. However, I've always had a mountain bike. Just got my first road-ish type bike (it's a commuting bike with more of a road tire than off-road tire) for commuting to work. Though I enjoy biking for fun and exercise around town, on roads, and on paved trails. I never thought I'd get into bike clothing though, as I've always thought bike clothes were really tight and not necessary. That is, until a co-worker who bikes a lot strongly recommended padded shorts/pants and a breathable top (among other things). I have to say, I'm 100% glad I invested in it. TOTALLY worth the money, hands down!

This jersey doesn't fit skin tight, but isn't flopping around in the breeze either, which is EXACTLY what I wanted. It's a great fit to keep me cool, but isn't so tight I feel uncomfortable (physically and mentally). It's just long enough so it doesn't ride up too much and the shoulders and arms fit very well. I've only had it a short time and haven't washed it many times, so I can't comment on how it holds up in that regard.

For reference, I'm about 6'1", 165 lbs, with a body type on the slimmer side. A size LARGE fits me very well. I went for the screaming-yellow color for visibility on the road. It is bright, but I don't think it looks too out of place with other jerseys I've seen worn by other riders. Many riders I've seen wear bright colors like this bright yellow/green color. I'd rather be seen by drivers of cars than look out of place.

I'm thinking about getting a second one of these jerseys I like it so much.
