    one less as I’ve just sold my Rapha Country jersey

    So down to about 15 now…..

    which would be fine except cycling is now my No.3 sport…

    1 (one) yes that’s all and I ride to work (12 miles each way) every day, throughout the year plus I ride over the weekends. I use it for mtb’ing and road cycling. I’ve done 600k audaxes in it and some bigger rides. It has mold stains on it but I don’t care. It saves any tricky decisions on what to wear in the morning. Bit of lynx sorts the slipstream out plus my approach is good for the environment. I’ve had it since about March last year. It developed a hole in the rear pocket through which I lost a bluetooth headphone dongle so my mum sewed it back up.
    I might buy a new jersey soon however. I have my eyes on a couple. I’m worried however that this may open the floodgates to a new period of profligacy.

    Anyone else got a built in wardrobe where only cycling kit hangs? The joys of living alone! ๐Ÿ˜€

    We have a spare room that it’s difficult to open the door into for all the cycling kit in there. ๐Ÿ˜†

    2 short sleeve jerseys, 1 base layer long sleeve and one emergency raincoat type thing. Don’t really feel the need for more

    @ferrals don’t think I’d get them washed and dried fast enough with only 2!!

    Got 5 MTB and 1 road, all too big for me now so never get worn. Generally ride in base layer or technical t shirts now

    I wear one for a couple of days and then switch, I find jerseys dry so quick it’s not problem, bigger issue is only having two pairs of bib shorts, pulling on shorts with damp liners is not fun!

    Far too many….in fact I have no idea, a very large very full draw and now started transferring older stuff to my work locker / boot of car (just in case I need a change…on a wet commuting day with a lunch ride I can wear 3 in one day)

    Of more relevance for me might be how many jerseys do I have that are completely new and never actually worn out outside….I’m at 4….and a skinsuit.

    Hmmm so maybe I don’t have a problem after all judging by the amount some of you have

    Might have to play catch up mind you ๐Ÿ˜€

    Five identical hi-viz yellow ones for commuting. One Decathlon one from about 10 years ago biking in France, one ‘team’ jersey from a works do riding the inaugural Huka Challenge. The latter two serve all mtb purposes, plus ordinary T-shirts.

    I’ve been riding for 20+ years and seem to buy at least one jersey per year, often more like 4,5 or 6 jerseys per year, not including team kit etc. I have no idea how many I’ve got – they’re all in a big wooden box in the bedroom, the least used gravitate to the bottom.

    As a guide I have 4 helmets at the mo, 4 pairs of shoes plus one pair of winter boots, many waterproofs, 4 pairs of gloves.

    I have just had to buy new socks though, I had run out for some reason.

    Crashtestmonkey thought I had a few too many gilets and I have 4 .. feel better now still room for 3 more purchases of gilet’s looking at this thread!

    I have 4 pairs of arm warmers ๐Ÿ™‚ My name’s Munqe-chick and I have an addiction to lycra .. {runs off to buys some more}

    I tend to wear base layers and wind proofs so I was quite smug about this thread but a quick look in the Drawers of Eternal Crap revealed I actually have 7-8 , most of which I don’t wear! If these were ordinary t-shirts I would move them to bike cleaning rags quickly but I can’t bring myself to throw out a cycling jersey, just in case…..

    I have a chest of drawers just with kit in, plus 4 bin liners in the attic…

    I feel much better now lol. About 8 jerseys of which half still have the tags on! 6 pairs of shorts and I really only ever use 2 of them. I need to thin stuff out!

    . I need to thin stuff out!

    Why just take the tags off and wear stuff, it’s just clothes…

    I think in some ways my collection stems from going on bike holidays and having long weeekends away, you kind of need enoughkit for 4-5 days with no washing machine and if it rains… chuck in racing some shopshire DH in the wet where you could get through 4 sets of kit in a day it’s never really seemed to be an issue.

    5 jerseys. A couple I’ve had for 6 or 7 years are effectively retired though- they’ve taken on a smell that never quiet goes and only take 10 minutes effort to really start honking!

    Meant to get another one this year but couldn’t find one I liked!

    Not counting base layers because they get used for other stuff too.
