    Just gotta love the pig-pen food falling out of mouth, brushin-up against dirty things hiding capacity of some prints! Animal print goes with everything right?

    Pedal Wench has it. Plain or print is too simplistic. Most of my jerseys are plain but my all-time fave jersey has a bold pattern, white on black. I can't stomach the busy little prints that look like they have bits of carrot in them. No pink here either.

    My favorite jerseys have a bold print but not like Sheila Moon. I love primal wears jerseys, I have four and they are all great looking plus bright. Well except the black dragonfly one but that is for mountain biking. And of course the Amici Veloci is still one of my favorites.

    Exactly how I feel also! And perfect examples in those two different jerseys.

    In the PedalWench survey - Jersey #1 over #2, hands down.

    Don't like the fussy prints. I like Hawaiian prints, or poster type prints. In my jersey collection, I don't have any solids, so I had to pick "prints" over "solid". Unfortunately there are so many types of "printed" that it gets confusing.

    See my avatar - I'm wearing my TdF sunflower jersey.

    I voted for solid, but would take something like Pedal Wench's #1 jersey in a heartbeat. I'd describe it as a print that reads as a solid.

    The wild, busy patterns are not for me. I'm quite big enough as it is now, darn it, I don't need my clothes making me look even bigger.

    ETA: While we're on the subject, I also dislike large company logos all over jerseys. I'm not a racer, I'm not sponsored, and I am most definately NOT a mobile billboard for any company. (humph!)

    Indeed, I want this jersey NOW However I just purchased new lenses for my glasses, and a new pair of Oakley prescription sunglasses so it will have to wait...

    Sorry Jeff for throwing off your survey! The first jersey I posted is a Primal Wear, and I'll wear almost anything they make. The second (which just turns my stomach) is Terry, and I would never, ever wear that. BUT, obviously, thousands of women do or they wouldn't make them. And judging by the split in the polls, half of us would too!

    I'm mostly a solids type of a girl both on and off the bike. I have a few jerseys or tanks that have a bit of a design, but none of them are particularly crazy. I do like the jersey that PedalWrench provided a picture of. That's pretty cool.

    I'm generally more interested in fit and visibility than the actual design. I really like the fit of Shebeest's Bellisima jersey and Terry's Eurohalter, so I more or less stick with them, assuming I like the design well enough. Shebeest used an animal print last year if I remember correctly that I passed on. I really liked the dragonfly that Primalwear used a couple year's back, but the tank fit me so poorly that I sent it back.

    My only pet peeve in women's clothing is all the black. I don't get why so many jerseys and jackets are in black. I want a jersey or top that people are going to see.
