The Special Pink “WIN” Edition Fat Cyclist Jerseys Are Here!

07.15.2007 | 6:00 pm

A Note from Fatty: Before I get into my main post today, I wanted to talk about something you may have noticed. Last week I posted only two things (a cartoon my son created and a race report Kenny wrote), neither of which I wrote. That’s not exactly typical, since I usually write at least three times per week. So what’s up? Well, I sat down to write a few times, and just wasn’t able to. The fact is, I’ve been stressing out about Susan’s upcoming CT scan (This Friday), and being funny isn’t easy right now. The weird side effect of this is that I now have a good-sized backlog of things I want to write about. So I’m going to try to write at least a few times this week, and figure (most of) you will understand if I’m not on my best game.

The Pink Jerseys Are Here!
I got my pink special edition jersey Friday afternoon, and got word from Twin Six that all the t-shirts, socks (both pink and original) and jerseys have now been shipped. So you should be getting yours soon, if you haven’t got it already.  Here’s a shot Dug took from Saturday’s ride (more on that in my Tuesday post, which I shall write as I fly to Chicago tomorrow afternoon).

Admit it: I look sexy in pink.

OK, you don’t have to admit that I look sexy in pink. But you do have to admit that Mount Nebo makes a pretty sexy backdrop.

How About Something Just A Little Bit Sexier?
Knowing that the female contingent of the Fat Cyclist readership always enjoys a good photo of Kenny, and furthermore knowing that the male contingent of the Fat Cyclist readership always enjoys a good photo of any female at all, I enlisted Kenny and his wife Natalie as models for the “Fighting for Susan” jerseys — available for immediate shipment in both Hers and His sizing (socks and t-shirts are available now, too).

Knowing that my readership is about 80% male (a number in which I am confident in spite of the fact that I just made it up), let’s start with Natalie:

And now, from the back…

And now, just in case the ladies in the audience are starting to lose interest, here’s Kenny, working it like he’s expecting a tip.

And now, showing off his guns:

I love the “WIN” on the right arm — it’s a very helpful suggestion, and one which I used to good effect last Saturday (more on that – as I said earlier – tomorrow, but quite clearly I’m going to do some serious boasting).

And you know what’s awesome? Anyone who wears this jersey looks just as hot as Natalie and Kenny. It’s a scientific fact.

Oh, let’s have one more photo, shall we? Here’s Kenny and Natalie together, ably demonstrating that the Pink Jersey is suitable as an outfit for your wedding announcement photograph.


PS: Some of you have sent me pics of you wearing the Pink Lemonade Jersey this weekend. Here are a few:

Brent and Sandie at the Death Ride. Sandie says, “They were a huge hit and super comfortable all day long.” Awesome!

Dave, riding the trails of Washington and British Columbia, says, “I hope Susan appreciates that I am wearing pink for the first time since the 50’s.” Yeah, she does.

Keith’s giving the pink jersey a thumbs up.

One of the Twin Six guys racing “The Blue Mound.” Of the race, they said, “Felt like I paid $35 to sit in a clothes drier for 5.5 hours.”

There are more, but I’m notoriously bad at managing my email. This’ll have to do for now.

PPS: You know, I think I need to set up a Flickr group for Fat Cyclist readers showing off your jerseys. In fact, that idea could really work well with the cool new site design I’ve got in the works. More on that soon.

    I know the waiting on Friday to get here and get the CT scan results will be extremely hard! So here’s to sending you calm and patience for the upcoming week. Here’s to hearing some wonderful news based on the scan results!!!

    BTW – I love my pink lemonade jersey! I originally purchased a men’s size since I had some experience from my purchase of an ‘original’ Fat Cyclist jersey. But it was a little large so I’ve handed it over to my husband and ordered myself a women’s sized pink lemonade WIN jersey (and socks too!)! I’m looking forward to us going out on a ride in our matching jerseys!

    THINK POSITIVE!!!! I will be and I know that is true of all Team Fatty as well!

    Now we know why kenny is always smiling. Still, no way kenny gets a girl that hot without something nefarious going on. So what is it? A Svengali-like mind control? Indentured servitude? Russian mail order bride? :-)

    Best wishes on Friday. We’re praying for you, Susan.

  3. Comment by walter | 07.15.2007 | 7:18 pm

    The pink jerseys rock — maybe even cooler than the original orange-y one, if that’s possible. Mine made its maiden voyage this morning, so it’s funny that should be the topic of today’s post. It felt great to have you both “along” on my ride — I’m in the last big block of training for the Pan Mass Challenge (cancer fundraiser/charity ride) in a few weeks, so it all seems very, umm, synchronicitous.

    Best wishes on Friday. Keeping you in our thoughts…

    man she’s hot! and is it just me or are the 3 inches of your buddy’s legs just below his shorts absolutely fried?

  5. Comment by Born4Lycra | 07.15.2007 | 8:56 pm

    Natalie nice to meet you nothing devious here have already said hello to Lucky Kenny before. The shirts look great. Sue will be thinking about you and wishing you all the best all week. FC Regards the Saturday ride picture what is on the pavement in the background by your left elbow – it’s not dead goats is it?

  6. Comment by jill | 07.16.2007 | 12:02 am

    Has Kenny ever considered modeling for Bicycling magazine?


  7. Comment by ming | 07.16.2007 | 12:11 am

    i saw Brent and Sandie at the death ride (and said hi) but didnt have my jersey =( it was waiting for me when i came home to seattle today. i shot twin six an email, but to no avail, sandie said she called you, seems it pays to go to the source!

    im sad i didnt have it for the death ride, i look forward to enjoying it on many rides in the future.

  8. Comment by Big Mike In Oz | 07.16.2007 | 1:58 am

    I’m just wondering what the reaction is going to be like at my next club race when I start beating people in a pink FC jersey.

    In the first outing for my original FC jersey I won the club C grade criterium and then rode up a category and came 3rd. Nobody seemed bothered being beaten by a fat bald guy per se, but rather the fact that they were beaten by a fat bald guy who advertises that he’s fat (across the widest part of his wide load, no less).

  9. Comment by MAJ Mike | 07.16.2007 | 4:37 am

    I wore my original FC jersey on a morning ride to a friend’s house to watch the TdF Sunday, but alas the back was covered by my backpack with my change of clothes so as not to disgust his houseguests by my post-riding stench.

    I’m still awaiting the 2 Pinks I ordered, but I am sure they will arrive soon. Just ordered one last night as a gift for a newly diagnosed friend of my girlfriend that she runs with working with Team in Training. Hope to see them soon!

  10. Comment by Al Maviva | 07.16.2007 | 5:26 am

    Y’know, the Fat Cyclist jersey initially really kind of freaks out the roadies I ride with, but if you actually are fat you can pull it off. Skinny people… not so sure. There’s no rule that dictates failure or success. The one really worthwhile thing in Bicycling Mag (aka Overpriced Bike P*rn Status Symbols Monthly) is The Style Guy. He has a good sense of what works and what doesn’t. It isn’t about conformity, necessarily, but about your ability to pull off whatever you put on, so to speak. Part of it is about choosing your spots (Fat Mike – winning crits in a FC jersey – **Magnificent** style) and part of it is just being able to sport the look.

    F’rinstance, there are a couple hot messenger grrrrls in my town – real cuties if you’re into the Suicide Girl look, except with really, really toned legs. I have seen them in some insane stuff, including tiaras, with bright pink hair, ripped up Daisy Dukes and clamdiggers, wifebeater shirts… whatever. They make it work. Hell, they could wear Dutch wooden clogs, sundresses and old 70’s vintage Bell “peckerhead” bike helmets around town on their messenger rigs, and they’d look good. Then there’s this really starchy 40-something attorney in my building who rides a nice IRO fixie (a good cheap bike with fixie street cred), but then he’s got the messenger manpris and the Filenes Basement T-shirt, the messenger bag, the vintage(d?) cycling caps, the whole deal. Yeah, it’s all real trendy stuff, but he looks like @55 because he can’t pull it off. He *should* look good but doesn’t, because he has this clean-cut, Type A vibe that just shines through the phony grunge, even if he hasn’t shaved yet on a Monday morning… it just doesn’t work. It’s like that dude in the Earthtones, sporting a five o’clock shadow in the Subaru ad, where he’s bragging about how green Subaru is… give it up, bro. We *know* you get the full body wax, and the closest you get to the mountains is flying over the rockies on your way from LA to NYC for another modeling gig… As with everything else, distinctive style doesn’t work for everybody – your mileage may vary. Considerably.

    So do I manage to make the Fat Cyclist jersey work? Yeah, I think so. I ride with a lot of people who would really really abuse me if it wasn’t working. Lord knows my non-roadracing buddies give me enormous rations of crap about my club gear, they do about everything else, but they admire the FC jersey. And, surprisingly, even my velo club buddies, who, shocker, can be remarkably catty, say good things about it. So I must have the style to pull it off, is all I can think. Either that, or because I’m a goon they are afraid to insult me.

    As for how everybody else looks in theirs… I’ll only comment on Hot Natalie’s extreme-facial-haired husband. No matter what the dude is wearing, he looks like he should be in an ad for some soda that contains twice the caffeine, three times the guarana.

    Ps. These Twin Six jerseys are the nicest quality (non-wool) jerseys I have ever owned. They are amazingly nice. If I wasn’t wearing a club jersey 90% of the time, I’d buy an assortment of them.

  11. Comment by Bob | 07.16.2007 | 6:11 am

    I was all set to brag about wearing my Fat Cycling jersey in the STP, but now it turns out that the style is out of date. The pink jersey is all the rage. Heavy sigh.

    Good luck this Friday, Susan. We’re all pulling for you.

  12. Comment by FliesOnly | 07.16.2007 | 6:12 am

    Ok…it’s a given that any guy (including myself) would classify Natalie as a “babe” but Kenny?…WOW!…even I now find him attractive!

    I look forward (as does my wife) to the arrival of my pink jersey. If I do happen to receive the jersey today, I will wear it on tomorrows club ride.

  13. Comment by Natalie | 07.16.2007 | 6:38 am

    I would like to thank all of you whose comments have given me a huge boost of self esteem.

    Yes, my husband is super hot. One of the perks of a hubby with a biking addiction is his luxury body!


  14. Comment by Brentandsandie | 07.16.2007 | 7:03 am

    Hey, we are now international superstars! Thanks Fatty! Good luck on Friday we will be thinking of you both. Livestrong.

  15. Comment by matt | 07.16.2007 | 7:41 am

    Brilliant! I’d forgotten I’d ordered one of the jerseys,, lets hope the planes across the Atlantic fly quickly so I can wear it!

  16. Comment by Lisa B | 07.16.2007 | 8:14 am

    I got mine last Wednesday, then wore it proudly on Thursday to melt down two roadies training for the STP on the flats, then up and over Juanita Hill back home.

    Sadly, I have no pics. But I wore it again today, so I’ll watch for paparazzi.

  17. Comment by Mom | 07.16.2007 | 8:24 am

    Even though I quit biking after I did an expensive face plant (not as bad as his sister did), I will be wearing my Susan shirt as we climb a 14er (Colorado talk for mountains over 14,000 feet.) Will add that picture to whatever FC sets up. And, Susan, knowing that you read the comments too, know that we love you and smiled when hearing some good stuff about you.
    Keep it up son!

  18. Comment by Philly Jen | 07.16.2007 | 8:26 am

    Got my jersey on Friday, and it’s been up and down the newly repaved King Drive (West River) and the ever-gravel Forbidden Drive in Philly, out around Valley Forge National Historic Park, and various points between (including post-ride lunch out on the sidewalks of Main Street in Manayunk). I know it’s going to be a hit at my next club ride.

    Fatty, get that Flickr group up. I actually broke down and bought a new cell phone yesterday (my old one was cameraless) so that I can ask random cute guys with nice, toned, Lycra-clad azspritzens to take pictures of me in my pink jersey as I pedal around town. Yes, my life is a walking (or rolling) Shadow Scythe production. Say cheesplorp!

    Susan, I’m sending a bajillion-and-one good thoughts your way, and picturing you having an amazing time in Italy.

  19. Comment by eclecticdeb | 07.16.2007 | 8:51 am

    Got my Pink jersey on Friday, just in time for my 50-miler on Sat. I have to say — LOVE the women’s cut. Nice deep pockets, long enough in the back, an doesn’t ride up.

    Got more than a few comments, and even spoke to a few people about the blog (hopefully you’ll get a few new readers). Riding up Old La Honda, (a grinder for me) I got a few people say as they were passing me: “You won’t be able to wear that much longer”. Ha! One of my friends said I was “brave” for wearing it — considering that I am NOT a skinny cyclist. I told her that Susan (and my Mom) were the brave ones.

  20. Comment by KT | 07.16.2007 | 9:03 am

    I got mine on Friday, at work (I was smart enough to have it sent here instead of home), so I wore it on my bike commute home. It’s beautiful! Mom says I look good in pink (I’m the only girl in the family, with 3 brothers, so I’m the only chance for pink she’s got). Forgot to have her take a pic.

    Took a ride (ha!) up the Eola Hills on Saturday with My McDreamy; I’m not ashamed to say I spent more time walking than riding. It was steep and went on forever. I looked good doing it in the pink FC Win Susan jersey. I took a few pics with my camera phone at the top. I was a little delerious, so they came out weird. The descent was great, though! Whee!

    Saw lots of other people out there on the flats around Amity, but no one else had an FC jersey, pink or otherwise. I must be the only one here in Oregon so far, or at least the only one brave enough to wear it out in the rural Willamette Valley.

  21. Comment by Rick S. | 07.16.2007 | 9:12 am

    That’s me in the first pic looking at my arms wondering if they would look bigger in pink….
    After our ride, I came home to a package from TwinSix on the front door step.

  22. Comment by barry1021 | 07.16.2007 | 9:26 am

    Hope our pinkies come for pink day on the 20th, and will surely wear it at the Amherst MA Century in August. WIN on Friday! Think Italy!!

    As for Natalie–well that’s pretty embarrassing of you FC. For God’s sake, get her one that fits!! Cycling tops are supposed to be tight!!! Don’t make me beg.


  23. Comment by barry1021 | 07.16.2007 | 9:29 am

    Oh and geez, you look like a mutant from “The Fly II” with those shades on. After we heal Susan, we are all gonna pray for your eyes going back to 20-20 so you can lose those shades…..

  24. Comment by Clydesteve | 07.16.2007 | 10:37 am

    Susan – still in my prayers.

    KT – You are NOT the only cyclist in the Willamette Valley with an FC jersey! I am south of you, in Brownsville / Albany. But I usually try to do an a ride from Silver Falls Park back home to B’ville at least once a year, and I hope to do the Peach of a Century this year as well, so you might see me up in your neck of the woods. Orange FC jersey w/ pink FC/Susan socks – I should be easy to pick out from the crowd!


  25. Comment by miles archer | 07.16.2007 | 11:04 am

    No pictures, but I rode Sunday morning in the Pink Jersey from Walnut Creek CA to Livermore and back.

    It wasn’t really a Jersey until it smelled like one.

  26. Comment by Stephanie | 07.16.2007 | 11:31 am

    I’ve had my pink jersey for almost a week now, and i swear i’m faster when i wear it…

    I’ll keep praying for you Susan :)

  27. Comment by Bitter (formerly known as Lissee) | 07.16.2007 | 11:59 am

    I was going to write some snarky comment about the posing in the first picture, about how the pose was the guysf-macho-magazine-version of a girly-wagon-wheel-shot with heads together.

    But then I saw the sample engagement photo and all snarky thoughts flew out of my head. If I ever happen to get engaged, that’s definietly the shot I want, pink jerseys and all. I wonder if in twenty years I’ll still be able to get a pink jersey. I don’t think my future fiance would want to wear one of the extra pink jersey’s I got (since it would be a little loose in the bust and hips).

    I wonder what size he’ll be, maybe I should just buy one in all the men’s sizes then I’ll be prepared…

  28. Comment by rachael | 07.16.2007 | 11:59 am

    I just got my jersey and wore for my morning commute. Got two whistles and a ’sexyyyyyyy’ at Starbucks. Love love love…I’ll be buying a few more with the excuse that ‘I’m just helping Susan’.
    On the serious side.. its awesome that this little community can help you guys out.

    ps. please please please can we get a Fatty update/ perspective on the Tour? I’m missing the commentary.

  29. Comment by Chris_N | 07.16.2007 | 12:20 pm


    Got my jersey last week. Awesome. Will send some pics when I remember to bring my camera on our rides!


    I just took my new Ferrus 29 on it’s maiden voyage for a couple laps of Council Bluff Lake here in Missouri. All I can tell you is that I am now selling my 2007 Giant Trance 0 f/s bike.

  30. Comment by Al Maviva | 07.16.2007 | 12:45 pm

    Barry, you are going to look really good in that century ride sporting the pink jersey, and no shorts.

    I still recommend taping an old chamois to your butt, or at least an old copy of the NY Post, but if you still want to ride bareback… Well, I’m not going to say I’m behind you 100% of the way because that would be disgusting to even think about, but I will say that I still support your efforts to draw attention to Susan’s cause.

  31. Comment by VA Biker | 07.16.2007 | 12:53 pm

    So, Armstrong’s “back in” the Leadville 100. Was he ever really out?

    Dang, I was hoping the focus of the race was going to be FC and Susan’s double-teaming the race.

    Now it’s going to be a media frenzy with some attention-seekers coming out of the woodwork for their 15 seconds of attempted contact with LA.

    I hope all the regulars can stay safe and out of the way.

  32. Comment by dug | 07.16.2007 | 12:57 pm

    just to be clear, that “posed” picture at the top of the nebo loop–except elden, nobody even knew i was taking a picture, i wasn’t sure myself, since i was only a couple minutes clear of getting to the top. temperature topped out at 105 that day, and we had just gone about 60 miles and 7k of climbing, with 45 to go to get home.

    i’m just saying. not posed.

  33. Comment by kenny | 07.16.2007 | 12:59 pm

    Al, I couldn’t tell. Are you saying that I can pull off the pink? I gotta know. I was doing my best zoolander “Mangnum”.

    Chris, I was waiting for someone to comment on the Farris. I’ve only done one ride on it so far, but I have to say. I’m loving it. I cant wait to take it on an all day epic ride.

    Flys only, you’re creeping me out.

    Natalie, No.. you’re hot.

  34. Comment by Philly Jen | 07.16.2007 | 1:06 pm

    I miss Fatty’s TdF commentary too. But when the yellow jersey rests on the shoulders of a great Dane known as “The Chicken,” I think this is a job for Shadow Scythe.

    There’s been so much stuff falling down and exploding on the road this year, I think it’s right up our resident animator’s alley.

  35. Comment by mark | 07.16.2007 | 2:57 pm

    To those not following the tour–you are missing out. Lots of drama so far, and I think it will only get better. Chicken legs looked very strong yesterday–I can’t imagine climbing what he did at 20+mph. Wow. We’ll see how (if) the other contenders respond tomorrow.

    Kenny, I noticed the ferrous as well. How does the ride compare to the rig? Does it have cable stops to run gears, or is it clean and SS ready?

    I got my pink jersey last week. Wore it Wednesday night for a solo MTB ride and then again on Saturday for a 80 mile road ride. Either it really does make me invisible to wind and dogs or else we had a rare calm day and that pesky dog on the route was asleep for the first time ever.

    We’re praying for you, Susan. We expect to hear good news on Friday.

  36. Comment by LanterneRouge | 07.16.2007 | 3:17 pm

    KT, did you stop by the miniature donkey farm? From what I understand there is nothing half-@55ed about it.

  37. Comment by Kathy | 07.16.2007 | 3:17 pm

    I wore my pink jersey Saturday and as two bikers went by me on the road going the opposite direction, I was getting some serious looks of envy. OK, maybe it’s because I had a tailwind while they had a headwind, but I prefer to think it was my awesome jersey.

    Will wear the pink with pride on my ride this Friday. Hoping Susan gets a clean bill of health and Fatty gets a nice tail wind.

    P.S. Kenny’s arms are so huge they don’t even fit in the picture! (similar in size to Fatty’s shades.)

  38. Comment by Bitter (formerly known as Lissee) | 07.16.2007 | 4:24 pm

    Kenny, the zoolander pose totally works! Maybe you could be a male model or something, just watch out for freak-gasoline-fight-accidents.

  39. Comment by barry1021 | 07.16.2007 | 4:37 pm

    Well Al, I would dare say if I DID choose to semi Lady Godiva-it at the upcoming century, the combination of the killer pink top and my ripped torso (think Kenny, with bigger muscles and a lot more definition-my six pack carries a four pack of Guinness) would keep everyone, especially the females, fixated above the waist. As for the NY Post suggestion, being its an Amherst MA ride and yours truly is a rare three decade attendee (1969-80, with seven years off for not so good behavior) of UMass, my chamois du jour would certainly be the Massachusetts Daily Collegian. Go Minutemen!

    Still no jersies, if they don’t arrive tomorrow, I may deviate from my normal stoic and manly self and have a good whine…..


  40. Comment by Al Maviva | 07.16.2007 | 5:40 pm

    Kenny, the jury is still out. Could you post some videos of yourself crashing, preferably going flat out lunchbox? Then we’ll be able to tell whether you can pull off the Ex-Treeem Sports / Soda With Punctuation Marks in the Title look in that pink jersey. Alternately, you could submit video of yourself in the pink jersey, BASE jumping on an old Redline BMX bike, and landing hard in some Cat IV rapids. Outside magazine this month claims that parachuting isn’t tough any longer, so even if you haven’t done BASE jumping or any parachuting at all, it shouldn’t be hard.*

    As for you, Barry, I’m sure if your jerseys don’t arrive tomorrow, you will deviate from your norm. In fact, I suspect you deviate from a lot of norms on a pretty regular basis. Not that there’s anything wrong with that…

    *I’m guessing the good people at Outside have probably never jumped into piney woods at night carrying a heavy backpack and a rifle… I found that kind of tough. Maybe not as tough as spilling a double mocha soy decaf on the front seat of the Subaru on the way to Sundance, but still pretty remarkable.

  41. Comment by kenny | 07.16.2007 | 6:39 pm

    Mark, The ferrous comes either frame only or built up with gears and an x9 sram grupo. The complete bike is in stock. I’ve heard the wait is long for the frame only. I’ve been torn whether or not to keep my geared mountain bike. The season is more than half over and I’ve only been on it twice. It was too nice of a bike to sit around a collect dust so I sold it and bought the ferrous. It’s a steel bike, with an eccentric BB and a replaceable derailleur hanger. For me it’s the perfect bike. The steel frame will be more comfortable in endurance races and if I do get the hankering for gears again, I can throw on some shifters and a cassette. I’ve been on two rides so far. Today, I climbed for about an hour and a half and descended for 30 minutes straight down some pretty techy single track. I really didn’t notice the added weight on the climb, but the descent was noticeably smoother and quieter than my aluminum bikes. I’m definitely selling the rig. This bike rocks.

  42. Comment by Col | 07.16.2007 | 8:03 pm

    First of all , I’m really impressed that Fatty has a Mom who even face planted at all. Then Al, where did the idea that Barry would even go “bottomless” at all? I must be missing a lot. Good wished to the FC family!

  43. Comment by Col | 07.16.2007 | 8:05 pm

    Please excuse the misspellings and so forth. I had a real good time eating and drinking before all this.

  44. Comment by Al Maviva | 07.17.2007 | 4:20 am

    Well, Col, you have to know Barry. When he says he’s going for a ride “wearing a pink jersey,” you simply have to assume that the topics he doesn’t speak to (helmet, shorts, shoes, sunblock, chamois cream) simply aren’t included on the packing list.

  45. Comment by Eric | 07.17.2007 | 5:46 am

    Clydesteve, KT: There’s getting to be quite a mid-Willamette Valley contingent. I live in Portland, and a biking buddy of mine is in Silverton. Fatty was gracious enough to send the orange FC jerseys to us airmail to get them here in advance of the Silverton Road race in May. We both wore them proudly, placing well in the middle to end of the pack. Fat in body? No. Fat in spirit? Clearly and proud of it.

    As for FC encounters, my buddy lives right at the base of the Silver Falls loop and rides it regularly, so there’s a distinct possibility that you’ll see him. And maybe we’ll see you on the Peach of a Century.

  46. Comment by KT | 07.17.2007 | 8:26 am

    Lanterne– yes, we stopped at the miniature donkey farm. That’s where I took my bad pictures. I did get a chuckle about that, though. Mini donks! Cute!

    Clydesteve and Eric: Yay Oregon folks! I’m in Tigard, commuting around this area, and riding the Vineride in August. No Peach for me, though, I’ve got a different event that weekend. I’ve never done a century, this was supposed to be the year for it but my knees are rebeling against me. Gr. Maybe the Portland Century?

    As I suffered up the Eola hill, all I could think was that if Susan can fight off cancer, I can make it up one measly hill. Go, Susan! Win! ITALY!!!!

  47. Comment by Argentius | 07.17.2007 | 6:19 pm

    I ended up at STP instead of a cool NRC race last weekend, since I am slow these days. I saw 2 jerseys on the ride, one with the socks! Both were the original version, of course — I don’t think any of the pink ones had made Seattle by Saturday — but it was cool.

    It was also neat to do 200 miles at a quick cruise, without it being a race.

    My previous long ride was 130 miles…

    Mark, I will second Kenny’s comments on the Ferrous. It’s smooth as buttah. I got the complete bike (frame was sold out) and have to say that I’m actually pretty impressed w/ the Sram X9 stuff. I will be converting it to single speed shortly, though, if I can get my Kona sold.

    my pink jersey’s inaugural ride was last night, it was great. Though I wish it had an invisible, unfeelable, super-tough mosquito barrier–then I could say it was perfect.
    Super mad props on the design–my companion/fellow spin teach said she wasn’t tired of seeing it in front of her. The color is perfect for standing out against the country roads in summer. Yay!

    The Pink Jersey is gorgeous – still trying to convince my wife that I’d look good in the pink socks though.

    I christened the shirt yesterday riding up the Cormet de Roselend (stage 8 of Tour de France).

    My best thoughts to Susan and you

    I saw the picture of Brent and Sandie, and it really scared me. They say that everyone has a twin somewhere. Sandie is my twin, this is confirmed by my co-workers and parents! I’m glad that my look alike also likes to ride and drink beer!
