    Would you be able to share a link to the seller?

    I have a Pearl Izumi factory store near by, and there are 25% coupons in the local free papers from time to time, but custom jerseys ... for $20 ... that appeals a lot.

    Thanks

    I can try to look up the vendor with the custom jerseys. It was a year and a half ago or so, and these vendor listing keep popping up and disappearing. something like this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2014...ceBeautifyAB=0 beware chinese sizing is small like italian sizing, but they do offer dimensions of each size which worked for me. I feel the bottom elastic is typically a bit tighter than it should be, but features nonslip grip fwiw.

    this is the exact kit I just received yesterday. rode with the bib shorts, and they are the best feeling beest fitting shorts I've ever had. a little better cut than the last few from China which were darned good. The jersey is meh, I will likely not use it. But I mean $20 shorts

    Thanks, that's really helpful. I'll hold off until the new year, but there are some great looking designs for no money at all. So much feedback on there too.

    I'd heard that Specialized were trying to get this stopped for their branded stuff, but I did see some other brands that look interesting to get ''clones'' of. Once this catches on more, this will surely be terrible for Voler and all these others trying to sell essentially something not much better, but wanting 5 to 10 times the price. The Rapha-philes will still want their stuff

    Thank you

    What slightly worries me, is the computer version of the shirt vs what looks like the actual shirt. Pretty appalling .
