how others store their cycling jerseys/bibs/knickers/etc.?

Postby blandv » Fri Jun 14, 2013 21:18 pm

Just curious how others store their cycling jerseys/bibs/knickers/etc.?

Meaning do you hang them? Put them in a drawer? Zip lock bag, etc.

Thanks

The ready use stuff lives in a box in the office (where I spend most of my time), and things for other seasons find their way to the wardrobe. It's always washed promptly because I work from home and am therefore household Laundry Monitor, so prioritise it over other, less important items of clothing.

If that refers to your bib shorts, that's a pretty good way to encourage the development of saddle sores!

Really...this is a real question...really!

It is clothing, just store it how ever you like.

This^

Winter stuff is in storage under the bed in a plastic crate.

Current stuff is organised neatly in a heap in an open crate in the spare room.

Thanks all. I was trying to determine wether or not to put them all in a plastic bin or each matching kit in a plastic baggy. They are currently hanging which is taking up much needed space.
