Beautiful day, blew off work, first time out in my Lounge livery. Not one, but two flat tires. Go ahead and tell me it's some kind of coincidence.

I don't know. I sported mine for the first time this Saturday, and it was the first ride I've done in ages without a flat. I was on my lightest tires too. The force is strong with the lounge jersey.

I had a LeMond jersey that was cursed. I had so many bad things happen to me while wearing that jersey. It's crowning achievement was a 25mph side slide on the tarmac after hitting a particularly nasty set of RR tracks. I burned it after that.

terry, you can shrink it a few sizes and send it my way if you think its that much bad luck. I'll fall on that grenade for you.
That is a very kind offer, but I think that its material is one of those that will still be a club fit "L" when it's been sitting in a landfill for 11,391 years.

First time I rode mine was the first time I didn't get flats in a while. I don't think it's the jersey though, I was using a new tire.

That was the jersey's fault? :wink:

This is Coyote's big joke on us. He creates a plant that has homeopathic properties that purportedly enhance one's performance. But he packages it in a form that causes tires to deflate.

The Yin and the Yang, something goes up and something goes down.

My rear tire apparently flatted at home after my ride.

Whatever that means since I wasn't wearing the Lounge kit.

I've ridden 3 times with Teh Lounge Gersey since getting it...nada awful yet Grasshopper.


I'd suggest redoing your Stable with Feng Shui in mind.

Mine made me pedal faster and jump higher. I did my fastest "climbing loop" ever last night in my new Lounge Jersey. And the chicks dig it.
