Pinning Bib Numbers to Your Jersey
There’s gotta be a better way!
I normally hate pinning group ride numbers to my jersey because I don’t like to put holes in my ridiculously expensive jerseys plus they tend to leave rust because I sweat like a pig.
Since I’m teamless in Seattle, I’ve been wearing my wearing my Team Fatty jersey while cyclocross racing. I’ve not raced three times and my once pristine jersey not only has a bunch of holes, but now the holes are starting to tear.
After seeing the latest round of destruction, I started concocting alternate ways to affix the bib numbers. The best the interwebs came up with was to use spray adhesive to glue them on. Which seemed a little aggressive.
My current plan is to attach some more durable material to the jersey where the bib number will get pinned to. I started with the idea of sewing it, but I figured that would probably irritate my skin. Then I thought about some sort of iron on patch version, but figured the heat would melt the jersey. Now I’m thinking about testing out some fabric glues, but I’m not convinced that will hold.
