MPLS Musette Jersey
Designed by a local Tuesday night tuff guy rider, and author of the MPLS mussete, this jersey gets some looks. A cool design, colors that pop, and a donkey on one shoulder, not sure how you can go wrong here. It’s limited edition – the first run will be only 30 jerseys, so don't think about it too long.

What can I say about this one. One of my personal favorites. I sent the request for a jersey design to Aaron (Mpls Musette) after I realized I just loved the colors and logo of his blog. I told him he had 45 min to send me something back. I got an email 43 minutes later with one word in the title "Bam!" and that pretty much says it all. Its funny how sometimes less time is an advantage when designing something. I have spent 43 hours on other designs that never made it to the sewing table.
He gets a percentage of every sale for his design, we get to support a local guy, and you get to ride around town representing the 612 and looking pretty damn cool. That is what I call a win/win/win.
Sizing: DL Short Sleeve Jerseys are designed for cyclists looking for a more pro or race fit jersey. They are designed to be snug, but never tight. They will not cut off your circulation, but if you are looking for something baggy, this is probably not the right jersey (or order 2 sizes too big).
Fabrics: It comes in either white or black base fabric.
The white fabric is the ultimate lightweight material, white to reflect the sun, supple, durable (mountain biker test group selected it for its non snagging properties), and breathable. White is so Pro, keep it clean and ride clean. If you crash give it to your kid brother and get a new one.
The Black fabric is the Rouleur, a bit thicker than the white with a touch less stretch and a cool crown pattern. It is obviously black and will attract the sun as well as the opposite sex, but fashion hurts so shut up and stop bitching. Remember black is thinning.
Sleeves: the sleeves are long on the short sleeve jersey, they are designed to cover 75% of your biceps. We did this on purpose; we love the feel and the look.
Some people have requested shorter sleeves for skin tanning reasons. We named our hats after a skin cancer survivor, our goal is not more sun exposure but a bad ass looking jersey. Our corporate stance is that looking cool on a bike is way more important than increasing the risk of skin cancer.
