SOB! Just looked at the tracking and mine is sitting at the local fedex facility. It was there this morning and I went right by it. I could have picked it up while running my errands. Oh well, Monday it is.

My jersey will be delivered today according to FedEx. But I am in NYC so I have to wait until Friday to see it...

:( and I'm from nj and don't have any email for the tracking number.



Might be a jersey thing!


lol maybe because I ordered it the last minute the store was about to close. 11/1 is my delivery date.

I received mine today, but didn't have a real chance to try them on just yet as I'm flooded with deadlines at the moment. On initial glance a really quick wear, I'm quite happy! On the slim-race cut the arms are longer than other kits I've had. They remind me of the recent Sky/Adidas(?) kit, as seen on the Froomester:

To the friends in Ireland - I'll re-package your items and send them towards you, coordination via PM to follow this evening.

Geek note:
One anchor-point on the vector graphic for a leg was deleted (somewhere in the transfer, maybe?), but it isn't really an egregious issue, just small graphic quibble. I'll guess that the anchor-point was deleted because the same anchor shows up fine in everywhere else on the kit. Other than that, I'm very happy that they managed to line up panels very well, stitch quality is great, colors vivid.

Additional note:
There is a potential that the store gets re-opened for a while on a rolling production schedule. This means that once per month there is a deadline to get orders in by, they are produced, and so forth. If there is interest in having this an actual thing, please let me know and I can inquire about re-opening it.

I also anticipate that there might be some swapping-trading of sizes in case someone finds something that doesn't fit. ;)

I never owned Jakroo myself but I saw some guys who did and the fit indeed seems to have longer arms which is kinda the trend right now.
Post pics asap as Im curious to see how it came out! :beerchug:

Got mine! :thumbup: :thumbup:

Sorry, no pictures. I ordered 2 bibs (SM) & 2 jerseys (XS) & 1 vest (XS). My thoughts:

Bib's (SM)- Bib's are great! only issue is the extention of material at the bottom is a little too loose around my thigh. When I lift my leg up (ie. to pedal), the bottom (back of my thigh) material dosen't touch my leg, but the rest is PERFECT. (my fault, I just have SUPER skinny legs...can't win them all) (an XS would have been too short)

Jersey (XS)- the Jersey is a bit tight (and I like tight), but the sleaves are great because they are long, but they are not tight around my skinny arms, but good enough (I think my arms are as big as a 3 year olds :) ...again, my fault, not Jakroo

Vest (XS)- PERFECT fit

The quality is great. :thumbup:
If I could order now, I would only change the jersey to a SM and not an XS, but the XS will still work fine, just a bit tight. (again, I like jerseys tight, but this may actually restrict my chest when breathing...and I'm really skinny...5'11 and 125lbs, but that's my fault, not Jakroo)

I only mention this, so that others can get an idea, so if we have another order it might help someone.

Thank you prend, for all your work on this. Great job and I think everyone will be happy with the quality and design. I know I am.

:beerchug: :thumbup: :D

P.S. If anyone bought a SMALL SLIM CUT JERSEY, and it doesn't fit them, let me know. I will buy it. :D

Prend. , thanks again.
