Any more info about the WW kit? I'm looking forward to ride with one of these!

I'm definitely in. But we need to do a bit more with the front, I think.

We could put the weenie on the front.... or would that be too goofy?

Image

Also, I'd play with the option of black crotch area on the shorts. In the US, we're a bit more modest about such things, I fear. Call us inhibited.

Finally, whichever manufacturer is chosen, the stuff needs to be light.

Dan

P.S. Another vote for "< 6.8". Very cool. The UCI will probably lower the limit as soon as the jerseys are ready, though :).

IMO keeping it plain and simple would be ideal...

White of course, with "weight weenies" in weightweenies font across the front and back in black, and again round the collar in black, with perhaps some of the site sponsers logo ie fairwheelbikes and starbike.

Here's my iteration on EuroTrash's design.

Image

I don't have PCM nor can I run the previewer on my linux system, so can't generate the fancy preview he was able to do. But at least I can use the template files.

I kind of like that version actually, especially the Ti, C, and Al touches on the pockets.

+1 It all looks very very nice. I'd buy a kit for myself for sure if it looked like that. I like Dan's version the best by far.

I really like that design too, but is the colour set in stone? Im not exactly a fan of the orange but I love the design :thumbup:

+1 with the inclusion of Ti, C and Al (not just because Im a science student)


PS
I know the orange is to match the logo, but I am not opposed to contrast and I dont think it would be a bad idea to have a little contrast. Or even black instead of the white... :noidea:

If the design is to be orange-based, the obvious examples are Euskatel and Rabobank (jerseys from PCM collection)

KTM:

Also, Ouch-Maxxis is a bit orangy:

But another option would be the carbon fiber motif.... sort of goofy at this point:

Very nice design! And the color is just right. Orange = positive.

Thanks for the positive feedback! I think the point about contrast was a good one, so I worked on that. Changing the sidepanels to white reduces the orange overload, as well. I played with different colors to complement the weenie, but nothing worked for me. I put the Gimp source here in case anyone else wants to play.

Image

changed: I made each "W" a double-W.

The change to the side panels works well, it accentuate the orange "W" on the front and back which is something I liked a lot in your original design, the weenie on the shorts (that sounds horrible) is also a nice touch.

Classy kit.

Yeah -- WRT the weenie. I tried filling it in down to the bottom of the jersey, but that had serious, errr... issues. Who came up with the "mascot", anyway? It's an ant, sure, but...
