FOGBee Jerseys

I have two Large Garneau jerseys that no longer fit me. I bought them when I started riding with the FOGBees and surprise, surprise I have lost weight. They are large size mens jerseys and are both in excellent condition. I hate to just have them hanging in the closet so if anyone is interested in them let me know. I am asking $25 a piece and can send pictures if you send me an email. Woody, I still have two ALE FOGBee jerseys and bibs to wear.

If any of you have been thinking of buying a Road iD I have a coupon code that will give you a discount. You must use if before 3/31/18 and this discount code can be used up to 5 times.

I had a request to post the link for the stickers some of the Fogbees had made in the past. The link below is the company website with the Fogbee & TN flag on the label, just an example of what you can choose.

You can be as creative as you want in creating the look you desire. Play with different fonts, colors, etc.
