YOUR JERSEY SUCKS.    YOUR BIKE SUCKS.    YOU SUCK.  


But ima change all that. Okay, at least the jersey part. You're on your own for the rest of it.   


If you want to be a rolling billboard for some product or look like a lost pro rider that got fat during winter, there are plenty of jerseys out there. If you are 5'10" and weigh 120 pounds, every handmade Italian jersey will fit you just fine. If you ride your bike to have a good time and you're not built like a male supermodel then you might not be happy with your options. That's where I found myself several years ago, so I decided to do something about it. I had been doing graphic design professionally for more than a decade, so I started designing kits for local clubs and handling the orders with custom manufacturers. Then I started designing my own kits. With PedalTrash Designs, I'm finally able to offer gear to all the people that have asked me about them in the past, and I'm super-stoked to be working with a US company to have all my cycling apparel made right here in the states.


I'm designing and selling the kind of jerseys that I want to wear - jerseys that look great, fit great, and don't require a sponsorship to afford. They might not be for everyone, but that's fine by me. 


These designs are for all of us that have more fun, drink more beer, laugh louder, get lost, get found, and don't take this riding thing so seriously. All of us pedal trash.


So Who the Hell am I, Anyway?


They call me Ultraclyde.  Yeah, okay, they don't really call me that.  My name's David.  I started mountain biking over 15 years ago and road biking not long after that.  Cycling is probably the only thing I'll ever really enjoy that's also good for me.   Now I ride tarmac, singletrack, gravel, commute...whatever I can find because I just like being on a bike.  I'll never be the fastest guy, but I just might be having the most fun.  


 Now, go ride your DAMN BIKE.
