Well that's a relief! At least I'm not the most behind.

You don't have back pockets in your jerseys? I've always thought that was the best part of bike clothes...so convenient!

They are indeed convenient, but unfortunately I'm too cheap to buy bike jerseys. I have only one, a Nashbar Colorblock that I think I paid $20 for. I do like the pockets on it.

The rest of my shirts are from AlertShirts. They're ANSI yellow, moisture wicking microfiber poly T shirts for $8, which is hard to argue with when you need a few to change into day after day, but they don't have pockets.

Also, this time of year is inconvenient; too cold for "just jersey" and not cold enough most mornings to add a jacket.

This morning was typical; at about 50*F I'm wearing long sleeve underarmor top with an alertshert over, and a reflective mesh vest over that. Bike shorts and tights on the bottom.

Once it gets well down into the 30's I'll add a jacket (mostly unzipped until it gets down to the 20's) and that'll give me a pocket. I wore a jacket yesterday (24*F on the ride) but I'm out of the habit of putting on my sound system and I forgot.

Come next summer I'll probably get another one or two cheap jerseys. Or maybe I can sacrifice one of the AlertShirts to make rear pockets for the others!
