Cycle fashion is looking elf-y

Elf Cycling Jersey from ProBikeKit

So here’s the new Muddymoles ride shirt, just in time for Christmas.

I’m joking!! Of course it’s not, although the real thing is now in production with Endura. It’s a retro effort which aims to be recognisable out on the trails rather than quirky due to the colour and prominent display of our name, so I hope those who have one on order will remember they are now ambassadors for us all!

I’ve also seen a preview of the new top from SussexMTB too which looks like it will be really nice, based on a red/black/white colour scheme, so keep your eyes peeled around the Surrey Hills for one of those. Possibly nicer looking than our effort but we’ll see!

The truth is it’s quite a complex process getting custom clothing made – quite apart from the organisation of people’s requirements (thanks muchly Dave!) for which the term herding cats was invented – there’s the issue of making sure what looks OK on a computer screen actually translates into something wearable in the real world. Some would say D’Andy’s wardrobe is testament to this difficulty.

So, in a few weeks we can unveil our new-for-2012 look. In the meantime, if you would like to buy the elf in your life a new outfit, take yourself along to PBK (ProBikeKit) for a minxy Elf Cycling jersey. Go on, you know you want to…


About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    Matt, that is just so you!
    You’ve gotta get one of those …for your road rides 🙂

  2. StevenD says:

    Do you need manboobs to wear this ? Clearly not my size. 😆 Matt, can you repost the cyclepassion calender ? it gave a certain je ne sais quoi to the homepage. 😉

  3. John R says:

    Looks like one for Mrs 661, who I seem to remember already has a “Lil Elf” hat to got with it.

  4. Dandy says:

    Appalled at the slight cast on my wardrobe, Matt. My plaid shorts drew some almost approving comments yesterday; e.g. “They don’t look as bad as they sounded” and “They should match the new Moles shirt quite well”.

    Admittedly that last comment might result in several cancelled orders to Endura 🙁
