Whats the difference?

I can see jerseys have an ass crack covering back with a few pockets, but is there any other benefit?

its usually like a dri fit technology so the shirt stays dry plus they are light and they let air flow through just get DRI-FIT shirts they work the same they just aint skin tight! XD

You look the part and look like you belong :p

Personally I do not have the cash to spend on overpriced jerseys when a $10 synthetic shirt from Target does the same thing. Save your money for parts...

the new champion synthetic tshirts from target are the best riding shirts ive tried.. i wear it over my hincapie and fox jerseys. its much softer and less sweaty than other dry syn shirts. it also doesnt get that hideous stench that some do.

a nice fitted jersey makes more sense on a road bike when you're really flying and your clothes flap in the wind.

Surprisingly, you can buy cycling jerseys a size or two too big, if you want. Then you get pockets, zippers, a bum flap, and it still aint skin tight.

Link?

The typical cycling Jerseys fit me too tight. I don't have the cyclist thin upper body shape and if I get a larger size its usually too long.

Jerseys make you feel like you have sponsors.

But you don't. You aren't good enough.

I am hopefully going to enter a race in the early fall. If I do, I will wear my cheap Target "Champion" athletic shirt and with a marker write "insert sponsor name here on it" and then go race. I am also going to be wishful that I place at least second to last to the last place finisher with the "sponsor" shirt. :D
