2013 FatCyclist Gear: Available for Pre-Order Now

07.9.2012 | 8:10 am

My annual meeting with the guys at Twin Six was heating up. “We need an awesome idea for the 2013 FatCyclist jersey design,” I said, between bites of ice cream. “Something that looks awesome and modern, yet resonates with the Friends of Fatty.”

I ate a spoonful of vanilla ice cream. Delicious.

“How about something with flames?” I suggested.

The dead silence on the other end of the phone told me everything I needed to know. I ate a spoonful of chocolate ice cream, and wondered which I preferred: vanilla or chocolate?

“You know, we could put a horn on the horse and call it a unicorn, then say the jersey has magical slimming properties.”

The Twin Six guys chuckled, politely.

I had another bite of vanilla. Just to see whether it was better than chocolate. But honestly, there was no way to tell. They’re both perfect.

“Maybe this year we should have the jersey feature a big picture of me on the front,” I said. “After all, I’m quite famous and award-winning, not to mention handsome.”

No,” replied Brent and Ryan, emphatically.

I had a bite of strawberry ice cream, thinking about the strange fact that in a carton of Neapolitan ice cream, it’s always the strawberry ice cream that gets eaten last.

“All the more for those of us who like every flavor,” I thought to myself.

And that’s when it hit me.

“Guys,” I said. “I’ve got it.”


“The 2013 jersey,” I said, impressively, with dramatic pauses placed appropriately, “will bring back pink, and it shall be known, far and wide, as the Neapolitan.”

2013 FatCyclist Jersey (Men’s Version and Women’s Version)

OK, actually I just made that whole story up. I didn’t notice the Neapolitan connection ’til someone mentioned it in Friday’s blog post. But it’s a good one, so I’m going to do my best to adopt it as my own.

But whether or not you’re a fan of Neapolitan ice cream, you’ve got to admit that the new 2013 Fat Cyclist jersey looks pretty darned cool (like ice cream is cool, get it? Ha). Here’s the front:


Seriously, the reason I brought back pink for the jerseys is that I’m planning on making the fight against cancer a massive focus in my life in this upcoming year, in particular with a couple of big book projects: Fight Like Susan (the book about Susan’s fight with cancer), and The Caretaker’s Companion (the  writing and fundraising projects.

When you buy any of the FatCyclist gear here, you’re helping me out with those projects. So thank you. In advance

Anyway, check out the back of this year’s jersey:


And here are the details:

  • 100% Soft Polyester Microfiber
  • White full zipper
  • Three deep back pockets
  • Made in the U.S.A.
  • Inside collar reads “FIGHT LIKE SUSAN”

So, you want to get one, don’t you? Wonderful. Here’s where to order:

2013 Bibshorts (Men’s Version and Women’s Version)

As a rule I am opposed to telling stories without heavily embellishing them (i.e., without lying). In this one instance, however, I’ll make an exception: For the past three years or so, the only bibshorts I have worn are ones I’ve gotten from Twin Six. I wear them, without difficulty or discomfort for 100-mile road bike rides pretty much every week.

I wear these shorts for the Leadville 100. And the Rockwell Relay. And for everything else.

Furthermore, I wear these shorts without ever using any kind of chamois cream. And I’m not doing it to make a point, I’m just doing it because these shorts are plenty comfortable as-is.

In other words, these are really good bib shorts, for a really good price. Here’s the design for 2013:


Just in case you can’t tell, the “WIN” logo goes right above your butt.

You want more details? Of course you do:

  • 8 Panel Construction
  • 8 oz Micro Denier Knit Poly/Lycra
  • Twin Six Silicon Grippers
  • Super-soft, completely seamless and fully perforated gender-specific chamois

Here are the ordering links:

2013 Fat Cyclist / Specialized Hydroflo Bottle

I have a little bit of an obsession about water bottles (I have, ever since the blog was young). Now, it’s not like I want ridiculous, impossible things from my bottles. I just want the following:

  • No taste, plastic or otherwise
  • An easy-to-use valve
  • A non-leaky valve
  • An easy-to-squeeze bottle
  • Fast, easy flow

For the past few years, bottle makers have been steadily making improvements on what, ’til this point, has been a sadly-neglected part of the cyclist’s universe.

Finally, I think a perfect water bottle exists. Really: perfect.

It’s the Specialized Purist Hydroflo. It doesn’t have a plastic taste, nor does it hold on to the taste of whatever you most recently put in it. The valve flows fast, doesn’t dribble, and locks shut just by being pushed down.

And the plastic is so flexible you can squeeze fluid out of it faster and easier than ever before. Really, you will find that drinking while riding is much faster and easier than ever before with these bottles.

After Specialized sent me one to try out, I went and bought a dozen more. They’re seriously that good.

So, obviously, this is the bottle I’m putting the FatCyclist logo on this year:


Oh, and I did a little show-and-tell video talking a little bit more about why.

Normally, $12 might seem like a lotta money for a bottle, but this is actually a killer deal on Hydroflo bottles — they retail elsewhere for $15. So maybe you should click here to get one.

Or a dozen.

2013 Fat Cyclist Cycling Cap

Hey, go back and watch that video of me talking about bottles again (or for the first time, if you skipped it earlier). Notice the helmet tan pattern on my head.

That looks pretty darned dorky, doesn’t it?

Well, just because I look like a dope doesn’t mean you have to. No indeed. Instead, use my dorkiness as a cautionary tale and start wearing a nice wicking cycling cap under your helmet.

And if you’re not bald, wear one just because it looks cool.

Here’s what it looks like from the front, left side, and right side:


And here are the details:

  • Sublimated microfiber
  • One size fits most
  • Made in California

Click here to order the Fat Cyclist Cycling Cap.

2013 Fat Cyclist Socks

You know, if you buy the right kind of socks, those can be the only kind of socks you wear. Specifically, if you get black 5″-cuff merino performance wool socks, you never have to wear any other kind of socks.

By which I mean to say that in addition to cycling, you can wear these socks to work, to fancy dress-up dinners, even — if you have the boldness to do so — with sandals.

Hey, why not?


That’s what I do, and I’m obviously very very fashionable.

2013 FatCyclist Cold and Windy Weather Gear: Long-Sleeve Jersey (Men’s and Women’s), Windshell Jacket, and Windshell Vest

I am entirely unwilling to be cold when riding. I simply will not put up with it. Nor should you. And while you are not putting up with being cold while riding, you really ought to set yourself up with something that looks good.

I believe I can help you. In quite a few ways.

First, if the day’s cold enough that you’re going to want long sleeves for your whole ride, the Fat Cyclist Long-Sleeve Jersey is going to be your best friend, ever. Except me, I mean. I’m your real best friend.

Check it out, for crying out loud:


It sports the same general awesome design as the short sleeve jersey, but with a thicker, fleecier fabric (which is still nice and breathable). Like it’s short-sleeved sibling, this long-sleeve jersey has a full zipper, three deep pockets, and is made in the U.S. Nice!

The long-sleeve jersey is available in both a men’s cut and a women’s cut.

If wind is your problem, you need to look into the windshell jacket and windshell vest. Here’s the vest:


And here’s the jacket:


What I love about these is that they roll up into practically nothing, so they fit easily into a jersey pocket. This comes in really handy if you want to take them off partway through a ride, or to put them on partway through a ride, for that matter.


If you’ve got questions, ask in the comments section, and I’ll do my best to answer. Better yet, I’ll do my best to get the Twin Six guys to hang out on my site today to answer questions, too, because they’re generally a lot more knowledgeable and helpful than I am.

I’ll get started with a few questions I expect you to have:

Q. When will I get my order?
A. In September.

Q. When do I have to order by?
A. July 17.

Q. I live outside the U.S. Can I still order?
A. Yes, but shipping’s going to be kinda expensive.

Q. What’s going to be behind the center pocket?
A. You’ll have to wait and see.

Q. Why no t-shirt?
A. We’re still thinking about what would make for a sufficiently awesome t-shirt.

Thanks tons for ordering your FatCyclist gear. I look forward to hearing tales of your uncontrollable urge to buy and consume mass quantities of Neapolitan ice cream while suited up.

    now I’m a little disappointed that the stripe doesn’t continue on the shorts :-P

  2. Comment by davidh-marin, ca | 07.9.2012 | 8:28 am

    I’m with Carlos. Where’s my ’stripe’? Also just a thought, shouldn’t the logo over the butt of the bibs say ….wait for it…… wind?????

  3. Comment by davidh-marin, ca | 07.9.2012 | 8:31 am

    Next year, at band camp, scratch that, at Davis….ice cream!!!!

  4. Comment by mykill | 07.9.2012 | 8:47 am

    Done, see you good people in the Big Pink Pieleton at Davis next year.

  5. Comment by ScottR | 07.9.2012 | 9:08 am

    Like the designs, wonder if I have to cash to get this year’s gear.

  6. Comment by Rich | 07.9.2012 | 9:09 am

    Long time listener, first-time caller.
    Will our cards be billed @ time of order, or time of shipping?

  7. Comment by NYCCarlos | 07.9.2012 | 9:20 am

    @Rich, billed now I believe.

  8. Comment by Heidi | 07.9.2012 | 9:29 am

    I don’t see a link for the show and tell video – wanna check out your dorky helmet tan line pattern…

  9. Comment by Justin L | 07.9.2012 | 9:42 am

    Not a pink guy, next year i vote for the flames idea. I love their hell cat jersey

  10. Comment by AKChick55 | 07.9.2012 | 9:42 am

    I can’t seem to find it, but what is the order by cutoff date? It will make the difference between getting two items and getting three or four depending on when it is. :)

    July 17. – FC

    Also, can we use our 100MoN TwinSix coupon for our order?

    Yes. – FC

    Have to endorse the women’s bib shorts – I still use chamois cream but have to say they are the most comfortable short I own and the only bibshort. Yes, they are a MAJOR pain to get in and out of when going to the bathroom on a 100 mile ride with all your nutrition in the back pockets, but they are my favorites. The chamois is JUST right. Not too thick and not too thin. They are a bit on the thin side for temps under 70 (which we’ve had way too many of this year – guess we aren’t getting summer this year either). My TwinSix jerseys and bibshorts are my favorites. Hands down.

  11. Comment by AKChick55 | 07.9.2012 | 9:45 am

    Oops, never mind, just clicked on an item and my question was answered on the preorder 7/9 through 7/17. So scratch that question. Wish it could be a longer time period!

  12. Comment by Lori P. | 07.9.2012 | 9:48 am

    Yes!! Next year at Davis-Icecream Pie for everyone!

  13. Comment by Lisa in Athens | 07.9.2012 | 9:51 am

    Must. Have. Socks.
    If nothing else, the socks.

  14. Comment by Sylvia | 07.9.2012 | 10:39 am

    Hi Fatty,
    About the locking and unlocking of the bottle while riding thing. I’ve been ‘trained’ to *always* leave the bottle unlocked while I’m riding so that if I drop the bottle no one dies. Now, I can’t remember ever dropping a bottle. I hate drafting and riding in groups and avoid it unless I’m *really* tired, but leaving the bottle unlocked while riding seems like a good idea.

    With this kind of bottle, though, you can leave it locked ’til you use it, and unlocking it is as easy as can be. No chance of accidentally spilling / leaking onto your bike. – FC

  15. Comment by Sylvia | 07.9.2012 | 10:40 am

    Oh, wow, that’s a nice looking jersey.

    Thank you!

  16. Comment by Kelly | 07.9.2012 | 10:48 am

    I understand you’re going careful with the bottles this year – I ordered one anyway – but, they’re a little plain . . . I love the version from two years ago – those are my favorites – I use them every day.

    Actually, the reason for the simple design is that the bottles are a rounded triangle instead of a circle. We can screen only onto one of the faces of that triangle. – FC

  17. Comment by Ian | 07.9.2012 | 11:10 am

    It all looks great, but I’m really wishing for a T-shirt. The tech-Ts from TwinSix are some of my favorite shirts in my wardrobe. And having one in the same design as the jersey would be just fabulous!

  18. Comment by Teri | 07.9.2012 | 11:16 am

    I, too, love my women’s bib shorts, but refuse to wear any brand that hasn’t made a design modification to allow for ease of use in the “green room”. No more ripping a sweaty jersey over my head in a panic, trying to get everything pulled off and pulled down before it’s too late.

    That said….please make a women’s bib short that has a buckle or something that’ll allow for ease of use without having to remove my jersey! I’d gladly buy them.


    p.s…the Hincapie bib for women is a splendid design.

  19. Comment by Paula | 07.9.2012 | 11:19 am

    Will there be any non-bib shorts for the women this year? I bought the whole kit for myself last year and do love the bibshorts for comfort, but they are a pain for women using the loo on a long ride:)

    I was going to buy the jersey and shorts for a friend who’s sister is battling breast cancer, but I don’t think she will wear the bibs.

  20. Comment by Clydesteve | 07.9.2012 | 11:29 am

    A full-zip jersey is a great companion for bib shorts, as far as the “green room” issues.

    You can remove you fully loaded jersey and hang it up without dumping the contents in, er, the place where you are going to dump, um, your contents.

  21. Comment by Paula | 07.9.2012 | 11:34 am

    Lol, ok I guess I’ll take the chance. We ride in south florida so it gets muggy and sticky and peeling of the sweaty jersey and then putting it back on is not appealing, but hopefully she will come around.

    For future reference, do you T6 shorts have the same chamois and material as the Fat Cyclist bibs? The material is very soft and the chamois very comfortable!!

    Yes, the FatCyclist bibs have a different design than other T6 bibs, but the construction is identical.

    I don’t have any plans for Tri gear. But you know, maybe a limited run would make sense. I cannot believe I just said that. – FC

    Any chance you guys are going to make any triathlon gear?

  22. Comment by Paula | 07.9.2012 | 11:40 am

    Fyi, this might have been a scheme by “fatty” but it appears there is a glitch in your shopping cart. It is automatically adding 2 items to my cart each time I select something…:)

    If it’s 2 for the price of one, then don’t fix it!

  23. Comment by Matt | 07.9.2012 | 11:45 am

    Can someone who’s previously ordered Twin Six stuff advise on sizing? Their website makes this sound in-between race and club cut. I’m 6′2″ and weigh 175 with 32 waist and 33 inseam. Long and lean and like my stuff race-tight. Thanks!

  24. Comment by blair | 07.9.2012 | 11:48 am

    now i really need ice cream

    (or my own blog)

    Or you could start a blog about ice cream. I’d read that. – FC

  25. Comment by Tes | 07.9.2012 | 11:49 am

    Must. Have. Tshirt…

  26. Comment by Pat Schleck (the cyclist formerly known as MattC) | 07.9.2012 | 12:29 pm

    @ Matt-11:45, I’m 6′0, 155lbs, roughly same (or slightly smaller) waist/inseam…I wear the large…(normally in US cut I’d be a med, but the T6 gear is sized more like the Euro…the very first Team Fatty year I ordered a Med, and to say it was skin tight was an understatement)…I’d think you might be an XL…if nothing else for the waist-length…but that’s just my opinion.

    And Fatty, isn’t this a bit early this year? (Or maybe my sole remaining brain cell just THINKS it’s early)…seems like we used to order around late Aug/early Sept… and have late Nov deliv…you’re KILLING me! Wasn’t quite ready for another expense just yet (still paying off Davis!) And I can’t just opt for the jersey…must try the new bottles (DARN YOU!)

  27. Comment by Erik S | 07.9.2012 | 12:31 pm

    Ouch… Just ouch. Pink? why’d it have to be pink? Having to buy the full kit for the wife. I was hoping to be able to get away with just getting her bibs to match the amazing T6 jersey she got last year.

  28. Comment by centurion | 07.9.2012 | 12:35 pm

    Shoulda went with flames.

    There’s always next year. Except it’s 2012, so maybe there’s not. – FC

  29. Comment by T6 Megan | 07.9.2012 | 12:46 pm

    @Matt Are you looking for bibs or jersey or both?
    Our jerseys are between a Euro and American fit and Club cut. Most people will go a size up from what they usually order. If you like a tighter jersey, go with what you would traditionally order.
    Bibs are true to size. Sounds like a Large bib would work best with your height and your other measurements.

    If you have any questions, you can always email service@twinsix.com.

  30. Comment by Pat Schleck (the cyclist formerly known as MattC) | 07.9.2012 | 12:56 pm

    Oh, and Fatty…something occured to me this weekend (during a ride of course)..this relates to your post a while ago when you were talking about the Hammer’s obsession w/ Strava and her QOM tally (and when Dug shouted out something like “clear the trail, it’s a Strava ride!”).

    My thought is this: they’re ALL Strava rides!

    I’ve noticed that ever since I got a Garmin (early this year) and started doing the uploads, I’ve found that Strava gives me wings! Just knowing that my climb times will be available for all to see lets me push a little bit harder a little bit longer.


  31. Comment by Pat Schleck (the cyclist formerly known as MattC) | 07.9.2012 | 12:59 pm

    @Matt, on the jersey size…just checked w/ my big bro, he’s very close to your size and he wears a LG (also likes it to fit snug)..just fyi.

  32. Comment by Angie G | 07.9.2012 | 12:59 pm

    The design is awesome!! In fact I’d say its “Fattylicious!!!”

    @Akchick55 and @Teri- I totally agree there aren’t any bib shorts more comfortable than the Twin 6 women’s shorts. They are amazingly comfortable. It warms my heart to know that men have the same amount of undressing we do.:-)

  33. Comment by GregC | 07.9.2012 | 1:10 pm

    You and I are very similar in height and weight- I very much like the fit of the large bibs and jersey from last years edition- a European cut fits snug (but not tight). My recommendation anyway

  34. Comment by Matt | 07.9.2012 | 1:22 pm

    Thanks @GregC and @Pat Schleck!

  35. Comment by south | 07.9.2012 | 1:49 pm

    No jersey for me this year, sorry. Just not a pink guy.

  36. Comment by dug | 07.9.2012 | 1:53 pm

    i say more pink. the pinker the better.

  37. Comment by TimD | 07.9.2012 | 1:54 pm

    Any UK based Fatties want to look at doing a joint order to help reduce some of the shipping and import costs?

  38. Comment by Eric L | 07.9.2012 | 2:10 pm

    Hurray PINK! I concur on your kind words about T-6 bib shorts. Super comfy in the saddle all day.

    You see Chris Horner yesterday? Now that’s bad helmet tan-lines. Fatty, you got nothing to worry about in comparison.

  39. Comment by NYCCarlos | 07.9.2012 | 2:19 pm

    @Matt – I’m a Medium in both bibs and jersey at 6′1″ 169lbs.

  40. Comment by NYCCarlos | 07.9.2012 | 2:21 pm

    Scratch that. I’m a Medium in Bibs, Jacket, Wind vest. Large in Jersey.

  41. Comment by Jon S | 07.9.2012 | 2:24 pm

    Anyone interested in swapping this years mens in a XL for last years in a Large? I tried last years on and realized it would take an act of God to get me into it, so its been worn once for a total of ten feet.

  42. Comment by Jeremy | 07.9.2012 | 2:33 pm

    Someday, I might try the T-6 bibs again, but I did get everything else but the windshell jacket. The design is fantastic. I love the positioning of the horse on the jersey pocket.

    As far as favorite gear goes, I love the T-6 vests with the pockets in the back. My other vests were quickly retired after the 2010 kit had the vest. I can stash the things I only rarely need in the jersey and the food and such in the vest for those sometimes brisk Northwest rides. I don’t fumble around trying to figure out if I have a Honey Stinger or my sophisticated Jersey Bin with cash and debit card.

    Speaking of cool rides, the T-6 long-sleeve jersey is simply the best long-sleeve jersey I have ever owned.

  43. Comment by Barb | 07.9.2012 | 2:52 pm

    Drat, was hoping for another hoodie to replace my lost one from 2010 :(

  44. Comment by AlaskaClydesdale | 07.9.2012 | 3:40 pm

    @Angie – actually, you can just pull up one leg if you’re not, well – having to sit down for something.

    I love the striping – I’m gonna look hot in that outfit this winter!

  45. Comment by NW Biker | 07.9.2012 | 3:52 pm

    Love the new designs, but now I’m just depressed. First of all (and maybe most importantly), I’m allergic to dairy products and now I want ice cream. Second, I’d pay good money for cycling gear that wasn’t designed for stick figures. What can I say–the name of this blog fits me better than our own well known and much beloved Fatty.

    Socks and a bottle for me. Nothing else would fit. Damn it all anyway.

  46. Comment by Cat_Rancher | 07.9.2012 | 4:10 pm

    Actually, do you think they might ship one with little pink “horn” stickers? Our school mascot really and truly is the Unicorn ( really ), and it would be sooooo awesome to have a Fat Unicorn jersey….. :)

  47. Comment by Ben | 07.9.2012 | 4:29 pm

    Hey Fatty! I left the same question on the sneak preview post but didn’t hear back. I have been clicking refresh on that page for days and have not seen a response. I love the hat but the one size fits most doesn’t usually work out for my huge melon! Any idea on a comparable fitted hat size? I wear a 7 5/8 and I think in that crazy metric system it’s like 60 cm. thanks!!!

  48. Comment by jonboy | 07.9.2012 | 4:53 pm

    I was hoping to get a fatty kit this year. But I just don’t do pink. Here is another vote for flames and no pink for next year. The word win and or the horse on the back pocket in pink would be ok.

  49. Comment by KSport in Bklyn | 07.9.2012 | 7:53 pm

    Vertical stripes: good for fatties. Happy accident, clever plan?

    Honey, where’s the Amex card?…

    You mean my Amex card?

    Your, ours, isn’t it all the same?….


    Why do you need the card anyway?

    Fatty’s having a sale, I want to get the kids some jerseys…

    Fatty has kids jerseys?

    No, I was going to get XL …

    They’re 8 and 11!

    I know but they’ll grow into them …


    I’ll take good care of them …


    Honey, what’s the password for the kids college fund?


  51. Comment by Augustus | 07.10.2012 | 6:04 am

    As a “pink” guy, I am glad to see the return of the pink. As we have no Livestrong events near here, I am looking forward to being “in the pink” for next year’s Tour de Cure. We had the second largest event this year and are shooting for #1 next year. We also raised $1 Million this year! I got a lot of positive comments about the “traditional’ jersey, more so when I related the “Fatty Story”. One of the riders, to whom I spoke, was an oncology nurse! She was really impressed! Keep the pink coming. As a side note, I really get a lot of positive feedback on my “Fight Like Susan” shirt. Perhaps a jersey should be in our future. Thanks, Fatty, and keep fighting.

  54. Comment by Eric Finn | 07.10.2012 | 7:02 am

    Here’s another vote for flames for next year as I’m also not a pink guy. I’ll have to pass for this year.

  55. Comment by Paula | 07.10.2012 | 7:47 am

    REAL MEN WEAR PINK! besides don’t forget the meaning behind the pink, that is what this is all about anyway! I personally loved the orange last year since it’s my favorite color and I don’t like pink, but.. when I think of all of the people I know who have had breast cancer (including my mom 2x) or are fighting it now (sister in law), wearing pink is not a problem. If nothing else it gets people to inquire about the jersey and the purpose of the Fat Cyclist Blog! (besides amusement that is:)!

    Exactly. – FC

  56. Comment by Bill H-D | 07.10.2012 | 8:45 am

    For me it is not so much ice cream, but these little delicious things that my grandma used to have in that little jar on the coffee table:


    Remember those?


  57. Comment by Steven | 07.10.2012 | 8:49 am

    Was really hoping for some orange this year, pink would clash something awful. Next year…

    Interesting how quite a few people are assuming there’ll be a new kit next year. That’s not a safe assumption. – FC

  58. Comment by Lori P. | 07.10.2012 | 9:48 am

    At the recent Livestrong Davis event, I can’t tell you how many times people came up to me and commented on the Team Fatty kit. Each time I stopped, it started a conversation! At my last stop, an older couple came up to me and the woman said, “Yep, those are my favorites…of all the jerseys and stuff I’ve seen I like those the best”. The husband then asked me about Team Fatty and what it all meant (really you SHOULD get cards printed to hand out!) so we chatted probably about 15-20 minutes about your blog and everything. The designs are always so cool,and are a great way to get people talking! I can’t wait to go out with the new version-I missed out on the last time pink was featured and have been kicking myself ever since.
    For the pink-phobic guys out there-would pink flames be better next time?

    Got my order done. Love the pink! I love my FatCyclist gear – no matter what color it is. I always see a few fellow fatties on my rides which makes me smile.

    Can hardly wait to get it!

    I’ll be honest, I’m pretty tired of the ‘pink’ theme. I hate cancer. I’ve lost family and friends to it. I donate and support. I just don’t want anymore pink. I’m probably going to pass this time around. Or, maybe a water bottle. I’m loving mine from the 100MON sign-up.

    Not everyone likes everything. And that’s cool. But I’ll tell you, I think this design looks awesome, whether you assign meaning to the color pink or not. – FC

    “Interesting how quite a few people are assuming there’ll be a new kit next year. That’s not a safe assumption. – FC”

    This is a reference to the 2012 Mayan end-of-the-world thing, right? Not that 5 sets of Fatty kit aren’t enough to cover most weeks of riding.

    No new kit next year would be worse than Mayan 2012. It would be catastrophic. I mean, what is next? No 100MoN. No more pie? Who knows where that butterfly flap (or not in this case) would lead us down the road?

    Love it! Ordered a jersey, l/s jersey, and bib shorts. Gotta snatch up the pink while it’s here.

    As a female, I love the bib shorts!!! Hands down, the best cycling shorts I own!

    I am the lucky owner of a FIRST “Fight like Susan” jersey. I get people asking about it all the time. At the Tour de Riverton last week I was chatting with a couple behind me about it and pulled down the center pocket to show them Susan’s list. “Why isn’t Italy crossed off?” the wife asked, then 1/4 of a second later the realization hit. She put her hand over her mouth and started to cry. We rode on in silence for a minute or so.

    Sorry for all the caps, I get fired up sometimes.

    I’m pretty bummed about the lack of junk stripe. Still getting a grip of stuff, though…

    Men who wear pink are sexy.

    I wish I had known that when I was young.

    Any quotes from Dr Lammler?

    I have the 2010 jersey, that design remains my favourite.

    I would love to own a jersey, but there is too much black. From a thermal gain in the Arizona sun it’s too black. From a lack of visibility it’s too black. Could you do something in a light high visibility color some day? Something like a Liquigas green, maybe. Thank you. Carry on.

    I love the black and orange, it is my favorite jersey. But I am also a girl, so I love the pink! I guess it is a win/win :) Although, I like this one so much I think I am changing my bar tape to pink and my water bottle cages to pink so it all matches. If you can’t be fast, you may as well look cute, right?

    Order a jersey/bibs/bottles for me and a jersey for my son. Can’t wait til September!

  73. Comment by Andrew | 07.11.2012 | 2:45 pm

    I don’t really have the budget this year anyway, so the pink makes it a little easier to avoid reckless spending. I guess I’m just not a Neapolitan ice cream sort of guy. :)

    hmm… I’m a relatively new reader here – about 1-1.5 years now. With all this talk of the old kits, is there a page one could visit to see all the past designs, or should I search fatcyclist.com later when I have more time?

    No complaints from me if that is the solution… I’ll likely get caught up in several posts I haven’t yet read anyway.

    Nope, there’s no online FC jersey design museum. But I like the idea. – FC

    I love this jersey! My grandmother, mother and mother-in-law all had breast cancer. What would make the kit even better are options such as a sleeveless jersey and shorts w/o bibs! Thanks for the future consideration!

    Any feedback on choosing windshell vs l/s jersey? I have the Version 6 long sleeve and use it spring/fall. I now own a Showers Pass softshell trainer jacket that only gets occasional use as I’m mostly a fair weather, casual rider. I can afford 1 extra item this year, but unsure what to buy. 2Xl jersey so thinking 3XL if I order the windshell. Help/suggestions?

  77. Comment by Steve | 07.12.2012 | 4:25 pm

    Boy it sure is interesting how polarizing the color pink can be. I just ordered a vest and 2 bottles. I don’t really “need” another jersey, but I was planning on getting a vest this fall, and this way I can fly the colors on every ride.

  78. Comment by Susan | 07.16.2012 | 11:51 pm

    Tshirt – please??? It’s the only thing that fits me & that I would need to wear. I love my WIN tshirt but it’s wearing out! Thanks!

    It’s 7/24. Have I missed the opportunity to order? Any chance of getting my order in still? Please inform. Thanks, Steve

    Will these be avail on TwinSix later on or was it preorder only and done? Im sad that I missed the pre-order. Would love to get one still.
