OT: Michigan Cycling Team Kit Order

Submitted by tdcarl on February 8th, 2017 at 6:55 PM

Hey all, there has been interest in these orders before, so the club has asked me let yall know that the most recent order is live. I am no longer part of the club since I graduated, but many friends are still part of the club so I can gladly pass along any questions to the appropriate party.

 

The Michigan Cycling team is a Club-sport who competes in the Midwest Collegiate Cycling Conference. Other teams in our conference include MSU, OSU, Notre Dame, Indiana, Wisconsin, Purdue, Illinois, Case Western, Louisville, Northwestern, Cincinatti, Marquette, Miami (NTM), and a bevy of other small schools. Our conference also features a few schools that consider cycling a varsity sport including Marian and Lindenwood.

The kit order is once again live and this year they're added a couple more options including a special edition "Great Lakes" jersey.

These are the same exact uniforms that the team will be racing in next spring. 

More information about the team can be found here :http://www.umcycling.org/

Prices do tend to run a bit high, but such is the nature of being a small fish in the big pond of paying university royalties and the like. Any proceeds go towards helping get team member's to races and most importantly nationals.

Below is copy and pasted the link and such to the order.

Shorts/long sleeve zip up jersey- about right.,  a little tight... so even jumping up a size is okay.

 

Short sleeve zip up jersey- tight. so even jumping up a size (OR 2) would be good.

 

Think cyclist, long and lean (especially upper torso)

 

If you are carring any weight around the middle... you might want to choose a darker color for the top and go up at least one size on the short-sleeve zip up jersey.

I wouldn't wear it running. Cyclists pretty much stay in the same position for the entire time, with minor movements every now and then, so the jerseys aren't meant to be jostling around constantly. The pockets in the back would be pointless since whatever's in there would probably bounce out, and it'd probably ride up pretty quickly, especially in the front where it's already short to begin with.

 

Edit to address your question about fit too:

They're "race cut" which means pretty much form fitting. I'm 6'0", 150 lbs (most of that weight is below the belt, because cyclist) and I have a medium which is just about right.

I have the Maize race jersey medium and the heavyweight long sleeve shirt medium.  

I'm 6'0" 175# (trying to get back to 168# after a bike accident and rehab from a complete AC separation), long torso, long arms, and the mediums fit me perfectly, but I like my cycling clothes to fit pretty tight (no wind flapping when I'm out with the crew).  

I really like the Maize as its pretty high visibility and I'm often riding on the hills on two lane roads.  These are very sharp, I get lots of positive comments from them.  High quality. 

I agree I would never wear them running as what I'm looking for in a running shirt is different, no elastic, no rubber seams, slightly looser fit, less zipper than you'd find on this shirt.  I think these would be uncomfortable for that purpose.  

Like them enough that I just ordered the Great Lakes jersey and arm warmers.  Have not tried the bibs or shorts as "full kit" is too flashy for me if I'm not on the "team," so cannot comment further.

He's just saying that if men's cycling was a varsity sport, it would require opening up a commensurate number of women's aid-in-kind.  If there's not a demand from one side, the other side loses an opportunity -- because people don't look at all the circumstances surrounding a situation, just quotas.

These all look seriously great. Probably won't be able to purchase before the store closes, but if I have cash... I would be paralyzed trying to decide which one to buy, honestly. All three of them are awesome.

Was really close to pulling the trigger last year. Which bibs do you think would go better with the Great Lakes jersey? I really don't need more kit, but this is hard to resist.

Also, would love to have a M cycling cap. Maybe next year!
