Whether you're trying to get into a more aerodynamic postition in the drops, stretch those tight hamstrings in a Yoga for Cyclists class, or be prepared for some ad-hoc course changes mid-route, it's good to stay FLEXIBLE. Let Gumby show you the way and serve as a reminder to others in your pack in the one of the funnest new designs from Retro.
Want to make instant friends on a new group ride or bicycle charity event? Roll up in one of these and nostalgia and fond childhood memories will draw even the most hardened roadie out of his anti-social shell. Since their debut in 1955, Gumby and his sidelick Pokey have been entertaining the young and young-at-heart with their mischievious antics and good-natured havoc-wreaking that caused others to get bent out of shape. Created by "Davey and Goliath" clay modeler Art Clokey, Gumby is a well-known example of early stop motion clay animation--years before "Wallace and Gromit" debuted in the U.K.--and remains an influential cultural icon. Here's your chance to bring him along on your rides! (No sidecart or basket required.)
Retro Jerseys feature:
Beautifully sublimated graphics.
Premium quality Euro-mesh fabric for moisture-wicking performance.
Full length hidden zipper.
3 rear pockets for your riding essentials.
All the Retro, None of the Grouch
I can't tell you how pleased we are to have all your iconic favorites back in stock. With a new manufacturer for 2011, these Retro Image Apparel jerseys offer an improved fit, brighter sublimated graphics and a softer, rapid-wicking fabric.
As soon as the boxes landed in our (outstretched) arms, BicyclingHub.com staff tried on some new Retro Image Apparel jerseys vs. the old ones for comparison. Immediately noticeable was the difference in the quality of the fabric itself: possessing a softly brushed interior with an almost silky feel directly against the skin, this new Euro fabric also provides slightly more stretch than previous years and lays flatter against the torso, eliminating the awkward "bunching" effect in the stomach region.
Retro Image Apparel's new fabric also promises to be far more breathable, rapidly wicking away sweat from the body and transferring it to the surface for quick evaporation. Mesh sides with pinhole air vents pair fashion with function, and s mall details such as the double-stitching and lined backing on the zippers were also improved--and much appreciated.
