It's out of control. I have, at this moment, 14 cycling jersey's with 2 more on order. Some of them have been washed more than 50 times, crashed in several times, and still look brand new. What are these things made of? I have more cycling jersey's than I do work shirts (which isn't a bad thing). But still, why so many?
2 of them are from Racer's Cycle Service (gotta support the local shop. Which is why I still need to get my hands on a Revolution jersey for the days that I am in SLC.)
2 Fat Cyclist jersey's- one pink, one orange
5 DNA jersey's- the core team
2- Omniture jersey's (it's where I spend most of my time, why not think about work while cycling too?)
1 sleeveless- which I never wear cuz I lack the girth in my arms.
4 misc jersey's
These jerseys have been through a lot. Hours of suffering during races, epic rides with friends, early mornings spent in spin class, late night rides, one attack by a mountain goat, countless trips to gas stations for the post ride meal (hot dog & 44oz drink). But they all share one thing in common. they stink. One ride can ruin a jersey forever. They seem to retain that stench no matter what kind of laundry soap I use. Has anyone else noticed this? Can't they figure out a way to make a jersey that doesn't retain the nasty smell?
