The whole pocket sat too high on my back, although I am pretty tall so it's normally a problem, it just felt even more so with that jersey. So I guess I mean that the bottom of the pockets are also too high.

Just a suggestion, Endo customs from LA? I just got some of Tracko's kit (Owner of Golden Saddle Cyclery) and its the best kit I have had.

I would go for a better design, black and white, no colors, so fits any bike. more like an assos style design. this one is just so so...

I like the current design. I'm also a big fan of orange, not to mention it's the logo of the site.

Orange is great! Black and white = boring. Not as boring as all black, but still...

sorry for the disappearance, i stopped getting email notifications of responses!

Good to see some actual interest going, nearly 50 votes on the poll is a good sign!

like i said earlier, if you are suggesting changes to the design you better step up and actually design something. If you wanted all black that was basically indistinguishable from every other black kit buy assos. From my standpoint, the design will stay as it is.

The pockets sit really high on the back with Champion System. I'm not that tall of a guy and they are significantly higher that all my other jerseys. However I do like the feel of the jersey and shorts as a whole from Champion System.

Looks like the option will be between LG and CS. Since our last kit was through LG maybe this one will as well. The only changes would be a slightly more durable jersey fabric and different shorts.

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

I didn't say black, I said black and white. I´m a graphic designer, and making a nice kit takes a nice set of hours behind the computer. If you pay me for those or you you offer a couple kits in advance I will happily do it. Otherwise I won't. hehe...

Well then it is settled! Kit stays as it is. This is a community project, no one is trying to profit from any part of it.

Maybe set a deadline for the poll so we can start the ordering process?

I voted for Champ Sys. I'm certainly interested in a kit, or atleast a jersey.

It's no profit, but if i were you, i would hire a decent graphic designer (not me, someone else), and share the cost of that designer between the people interested. Then you will have a good design with good materials, right now you have a boring design, problem is that most people won't say it, even if they think it, cause it's politically incorrect. But I really don't care and this design is UGLY as hell...
Happy Trails !!!
