    so; which club has the best jersey? i certainly don't know nearly as much as many on the forum here, but i do like the dunshaughlin one. there seems to have been a welcome change towards simpler designs in the last few years, or is that just me?

    I’ve always liked the St Tiernans jersey. Tallaght Wheelers I quite like too. And the Marble City Wheelers because it’s black and amber! Reservoir Cogs too.

    This thread is useless without pics.

    And you can't beat the Orwell Wheelers eight-pack 💪

    Biased of course but I do think the Irish Road Club made a great job of the last revamp.

    The Joe Daly kit is really simple but looks great on, to my eye.

    I think a big mistake clubs make is going for the "budget" cut so you end up with ill-fitting saggy, baggy kit regardless of the wearer. It's well worth going for the modern, race fit style, - full zip, with the slick aerobanding around the leg grippers on the shorts and the waist and arms/cuffs and collar on the jerseys.

    What I think was the first Reservoir Cogs jersey when it was more like the Reservoir Dogs artwork. I think they've changed it since though?

    My club offers both in the club shop, so it's up to the riders.

    De Ronde van Cork have a nice distinctive one.

    oh no, that's ugly. i can count six, possibly seven usher logos on it. that's why i liked the dunshaughlin one, it's a nice classic simple design.
    it's like this, but without the rainbow stripes.

    Jerseys without a sponsor > jerseys with a sponsor.
    Original design > rip of a retro or pro kit.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,046 ✭✭✭ daragh_


    Everyone is going to say their Club jersey, which is fair enough (but wrong).

    The STCC Jersey is the classiest jersey out there and I'm not biased in anyway*. It also makes you** go faster as pictures from the weekend testify.

    *not an actual fact

    **apart from me

    Other than that I've always liked this one

    i like ours (probably the only one that does !)555830.jpg


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,046 ✭✭✭ daragh_


    I can tell you what the ugliest jersey out there is but I don't want to upset anyone.

    Everyone's gonna pick their own club!
    In fairness Sundrive has famously had the best kit in the country for years - other clubs have moved their kit closer to their design over the last few years (the retro, simple look).

    Otherwise I like the 905 kit and the Dan Morrissey kit, I like that they're colourful.

    Another thing going for the Tiernan's jersey is you get to see it in the Veulta, similarish to the Burgos colours.

    I like the revamped Bray Wheelers one, mostly as the older Bray Wheelers one was pretty bad!

    Bray have to win best improved kit!

    The UCD kit is lovely too.

    As it's getting a mention and I do like the current iteration. Also there is a story behind the colours - Blue for the sky and sea, purple for the heather (and the now missing Yellow for the gorse). Not sure how to embed it.

    Have Dublin wheelers changed theirs recently?

    I thought I saw some in a mint green type type with italicized writing over the weekend and it was nice.


    I'm in agreement with wishbone ash otherwise. The de ronde jersey is lovely

    No you're ugly


  • Registered Users Posts: 22 ✭✭✭ Strobing


    I'm hesitant to buy my own club jersey considering you're basically a billboard, nevermind that it's not the nicest looking club jersey out there. Most of them I've seen are a bit ugly tbh


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,506 ✭✭✭ billyhead


    Swords CC. Close the thread:)

    Could have been Ashbourne Wheelers?

    As a neutral Johnny no-mates club, I'd give Sundrive my vote. Although it does look very similar to the one the chap wears on the Strava log-in screen...any idea what jersey this is?

    Saw a fella up my way last week in kit that was like the offspring of the Wanti and Androni jerseys. Mainly white with blue shoulders and a tonne of different logo's.

    No idea what club it was but it looked great.

    🚴‍♂️

    Brixton cycles, my old local club, rode with them for 5 years while I lived in London. I still ride around sligo in the kit. I know the guy in the strava pic, but rarely rode with him as I mostly rode on the track, he’s a cycle courier that rides with the club mostly on the road.

    The kit is actually shop kit, so anyone can buy it, but the associated club also wear it. It was redesigned earlier this year so it’s slightly different, but still the nicest club kit: https://www.brixtoncycles.co.uk/product/3884/milltag-brixton-cycles-classic-jersey-recycled-fabric-m/

    Yup, think so. Especially given the part of the world I was in

    Sundrive have had one of the best jerseys for many years, and I agree with the love for St Tiernans too. Unfortunately it seems easier to identify the more garish and uglified club jerseys than the cool ones-- there should be a National committee set up to ensure compliance with some minimum standard of velo-coolness before these are let loose on the roads!


  • Registered Users Posts: 287 ✭✭ JimmiesRustled


    I always thought the Powerhouse sport jerseys looked well, especially from 2019. Although I was only ever used to seeing them from behind on race day :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,815 ✭✭✭ doozerie


    I haven't seen it in the flesh, but I like the look of the new Ballymena kit.

    Not a member, but St Teirnan's by a distance for me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,267 ✭✭✭ jamesd


    Portumna CC, designed by local school.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,046 ✭✭✭ daragh_


    Cycling Ireland used to have a page with Club Jerseys - vanished now.

    Would be cool to have some sort of online archive of current and old jerseys. Might throw one up on Flickr or someplace similar.

    I liked the SDCC one, Carlow newest one is nice as well. I like the STCC kit and I know I appear biased but I hated their old one, it was awful. I do dislike Lucan and Longford for the simple fact that they have the same colours, same initials and I simply dislike Hi Vis yellow unless it intentionally garish. Orwell appears to be influenced by the HIghroad HTC kit which I like but it doesn't work great with the green, but green is a hard colour to pull off in a kit unless it is a large block colour I think. I also like the sundrive kit, tempted to join them just for the kit.
