I cut the sleeves off an old Answer jersey of mine and it has a basketball jersey look to it now. I'm going to wear a compression shirt I have underneath. Yes like Stewart was doing at A1 and other races. I've been wearing compression shirts at work recently and love how they feel so I decided to try it while riding. Going to club moto tomorrow in Livermore CA. I'll let ya know what I think.

I've been wearing a compression shirt with a jersey over it for my last couple of races. It is a lot more comfortable than a jersey in my opinion. I started doing it because I have a set of race gear and a set of practice gear. Well the practice jersey ripped to shreds when I tangled with a tree and I don't want to wear the race jersey in practice. I have a wife in nursing school and can't afford the Seven gear or I would go that route. For now, this is actually doing quite well.

I run the virus stuff and couldnt be happier. I run it no matter how hot or cold it is and it feels so much better than just having a jersey on. Plus it stops the dreaded nipple chaffing, no more duct tape! lol

They did it a few years ago. 08-09 maybe. I had a set (different design) and liked it. Could see the sport migrating towards this. Just check out the evolution of jerseys, the late 90's and early 2000's look like flying squirrels compared to '13-'14.

Only problem with compression shirts is they must use some chinese dude with a pencil neck in the sweatshop to size them. They choke me when I wear them.

Wow I honestly thought I was gonna get hated on. Ya I love how they feel even on hot days,theyre uv protectant as well. If I can figure out how to post pictures I will. I really am digging the basketball look to my jersey. I need to sew the edges where I cut it cus its a little jagged but ya I'm pumped. I think the axo gear above looks cool,baggy gear gets in the way I like to be free to move.

I wear compression underwear. Tried the thong (true story) but my ball sack kept falling out the side.
Plus farting was like trying to whistle with your finger over your mouth.

to me, compression is what you wear under your jersey, not as a jersey.
