Our New Urban Jersey, which can serve through three seasons as a single garment, a light jacket, or a mid layer, normally $135.00, is available now for only $99.00. This is the non-hoodie variant of our famous Four Season Jersey, whose praises you can read by clicking here.
And our Merino V-Neck T-Shirt, which I wear on nearly every ride year-round, has been reduced from $75.00 to just $56.25.
These prices are good until the day after the Winter Solstice, December 22nd. And we ship all domestic orders via Priority Mail, so you'll receive them within three days anywhere in the USA.
Pure merino goodness, with wool imported by us directly from New Zealand.

And at Flying Pigeon LA, I ponder the souls, if any, of the those scofflaw motorists who blast their horns at drivers ahead of them when they happen to be letting pedestrians finish crossing, saying in effect, Kill 'Em Already; Can't You See I'm Waiting?
And right here at Bicycle Fixation I apologize for not posting much of our own content lately. The business and the household—which are one and the same—are suffering a cashflow crisis which has me scrambling for other sources of income, as the recession has still not lifted for the bike fashion business that subsidizes this website.
If you don't have a hankering for fine dressy woolen bike clothes, maybe you could help out by purchasing my collection of essays on cycling, urban development, transportation in general, and the difficulties of keeping civilization on an even keel. You will find a description of the book, and links to the various marketplaces from which it is available, by clicking on its title: Our Own Day Here.

While at Flying Pigeon LA I note that, despite the counterpoint of car addicts, The Beat Goes On, and that it's the famous "different drummer" setting the pace nowadays.

And we need them, too, as pointed out on Flying Pigeon LA, where I note that Shakespeare Nailed it when he said that "one can smile and smile and be a villain."
