“IT IS FORBIDDEN TO FORBID!”
It’s hard to believe that this is the typical Austin “fall riding” wear. Short sleeve jersey and bibs. Maybe arm warmers. Out of all my road-cycling kits, for some reason I keep coming back to this combo: the Tenspeed Hero Stealth Club Jersey and the Team Dream ENDO Compression bibs.
Both fit exceptionally well and are classic additions to anyone’s collection. In fact, I’m a huge fan of everything Tenspeed Hero is doing but I had never owned one of their jerseys before. They’re made in Italy, from tech fabrics and the fit is pretty spot on. I haven’t owned a club-fit jersey (size large) in over a year, so I was surprised at how the chest in particular felt a little more roomy than my tradition size large race fit kits.
What can I say? I don’t have to do posts like this but I’ve been really digging this jersey!
One thing I’ve always respected about Rapha is scouting the perfect locations to photograph their seasonal lookbooks. This is deep winter. I.e. the reason I live in Texas. It takes a special kind of human to want to venture out in conditions like this, so if you’re going to do it, make sure you’ve got the right gear….

I usually don’t like posting renderings of kits, but these new offerings from Rock n Rollin are looking good. I love the “Live Fast Die Old” slogan. See the full offerings here. Some of which are a little weird, like the rainbow Eucalyptus…
I know it’s tough to decide which jersey or kit to buy with all the options I’ve been posting these past few weeks. What I will say though is yesterday, when Tenspeed Hero posted about this Stealth Club jersey, I went and immediately picked one up. And some new caps…
What can I say? Tenspeed Hero is killing it. Head on over now to check their stock.
Ornot is a small, new label based in San Francisco. Founded by the belief that you shouldn’t have to spend a lot of money, only to look like a rolling billboard. All of their garments are made in California and are minimally-branded.
Check out the full Ornot line here. I will say one thing: kudos to them for developing a women’s line at the same time as a men’s line and making them the same design!
Also, damn, I miss riding in California already!
You can never have too many jerseys. Trust me on that. Also, you can never have too many black jerseys, especially going into the winter months. Check out the newest team jerseys from Tokyo Fixed!
For Autumn / Winter 2013, Rapha revisits some of their classic cold weather gear. My favorites this season are the thermal bibs, the longsleeve brevet jersey and the extensive women’s line. See the full product like at Rapha and check out the lookbook here.
This week has been a tough one for jersey collectors. Especially with the cool autumn mornings being here, and the newest from House Industries. Every cyclist should have a wool jersey. I don’t care where you are but rest assured, showing up to a ride in this will get you some attention…

Seriously, killing it!
