It's the new frontier in the makerspace.
hacking and modding…………clothes.
A new jacket with tech fabrics and active ventilation (zips that can open to allow moisture to escape) are over $200. shit works though. need that functionality.
A cheap ninjastyle cycling jacket that fits real well and looks fine is $30, available almost anywhere. It's not at all breathable tho, like wearing a sauna suit after a few minutes activity.
So I brought it to a home-business, an alteration service that added armpit zips and two additional mountaineer style vertical ventilation zips on the front, features that usually only appear together on jackets over $300.
Cost of alterations were 35 dollars, attention to detail was good.
Shit works really well.
Will post detailed photos if 10 people post verifiable pics of their bikes. Don't fucking dox yourself in any way, doesn't have to be the entire bike, strip any exif data from photos or w/e
Damn. Sounds cool.
I have a really shitty commuter bike I hate.
Sounds like your sadly ignoring one of the most important aspects of cycling, aesthetics. Pride in your ride means more time in the saddle©.
Post bike and I'll post mods.
Techwear is all about spending literal thousands of dollars on clothes you will only wear in the city where it will mostly be sunny and warm.
