    Lounge Jersey Curse takes a new twist!?

    I'll preface this by saying I've worn my full Vegas kit and Gulf jersey on a couple dozen rides over the last year. I've had absolutely no bad luck with them. Today, I decided to wear my brand new seafoam lounge jersey on a 55 mile ride. Strangely enough, it wasn't myself with the bad luck; my wife flatted...her tubular...on a deer tick sized piece of glass.

    It seems that the lounge curse is only applicable to the seafoam jersey/kit, and that the curse is transferrable to whomever the jersey wearer is riding with.

    if YOU caused your wife's problems, you MIGHT want to keep that to yourself.....just saying
    Of course I'm sure...that doesn't mean I'm right.....

    Thankfully, a can of PitStop sealed the puncture.

    She knows about the lounge curse. Even though I didn't run over the glass (that one's on her) she still asked me directly "Why the hell would you being bad luck like that on a ride? And why did you pass it off to me?"

    I tend to flat once every 3,000 miles or so. What kind of freaky, voodoo wares are you selling around here? ;)

    My lovely wife is sooooooo thrilled to hear this! The good news for her is that she got a Seafoam kit too, so this way we'll both be marooned.

    I'm still in trouble!

    I cannot decide whether the seafoam green Lounge kit is cursed or a suit of armor that protects us. I never have had a flat or other mechanical while wearing the seafoam kit But, I was wearing it when I was almost hit by an 18-wheeler and crashed while riding with Ridgetop in May. On the one hand, I did crash and was pretty banged up (cracked ribs, roadrash, I still have lingering pain in my right hand). On the other hand, I lived to tell the story. So, I cannot decide if the kit cursed me back in May or if it saved me like a lycra St. Christopher's medal.

    Thank you, MarkS! I've need a quote in my signature for some time now. I just found it!

    Why? Are you planning on taking a three hour tour on the S.S. Minnow?

    I have no issue with your using my quote. In fact, I'm kind of flattered.

    i really hope she takes to it as she needs a hobby to get her outside and excersizing and having fun together but I will still have to do some longer/faster rides on my own!

    All appears not so lost. A dose of Stan's seems to have sealed the puncture more permanently than the PitStop did. I may not be caned after all.

    I went on a cycling/camping trip and flatted in the first 10 miles with a brand new bulletproof tire from a glass shard. It was your jersey's fault. Please send me a tube to replace the one you ruined.
