I haven't been checking the forums often and I am still not getting email notifications of responses for whatever reason. :/
As for the kit. From a won't match your bike standpoint, the green I think stands out a lot more than the orange we last used. The jersey design was great and most importantly original
. Since Liggero was able to link to to a kit that looks very similar I think we need more work on the design if it is going to change. The 'W' shape on the jersey really tied everything together. Right now the sharp angles and diagonal lines really are not bringing anything but distractions.
The things I like about Prendrefue's design are the 'lighten up' text, the periodic table of element squares for the frame materials, and the weenie out of the pocket. Personally I really liked our original weenie out of your butt design since it would be a great conversation piece for those riding behind you. Also looking back I like the design using orange instead of green (and usually I am a big fan of green.) The shorts design from the original could use some work and prendrefue's idea with some more work could be the ticket.
So the key points would be:
-The orange color really need to stay.
-Weight Weenies is not the same without the weenie.
-Overall design of the jersey needs to tie everything together. Random lines to make it look 'modern' and similar to some of the pro kits distracts the eye.
-The shorts need to tie in with the jersey, our current shorts just barely get by on that count. So a redesign of those could be in order.
If I were you, I would ask Prendrefeu to do a decent design. If you charge 5€ extra per kit, considering a decent kit will sell 5-10 times more than this one, you can pay the designer and you'll get a decent design. And yes, it will cost you about 5€ per person; what a wrong idea I just had, right? Shame on me...
Now I'm not trying to light the fire again but I am putting in as much if not more work into this than someone who designed the kit. I am not asking for any compensation for this so why should another member of the weight weenies community? DJ did not ask for any compensation last time, nor did I. I don't care if you are or are not a graphic designer, I think it is extremely selfish of you to try to profit on a community project. Provide your services if you desire, or mock up some proofs and then, maybe then could we as a community decide to pay you for your services or not. It is not my decision to make everyone pay an extra 5€.

If you are interested in a Weight Weenies kit I no longer know what you should do.
