I like to ride bicycles a lot. Especially road bikes. One of the things that I’ve done over the years is get my own custom jerseys made. This ends up being a case of thinking up something fun, and then asking friends if they’re interested in them too; because the more you buy, the lower the cost.

Not as many folks in the US seem to know about the German company Owayo. I don’t know why, because they are awesome and the quality is much better, price is lower, and no minimum problem compared to every mainstream US maker I’ve found.

This started the trend of usually having sleeveless women’s, short sleeve men’s, and a pull-over kid’s version too:
