Thanks!... Orange it is. For example, which of the following would be preferred?
  • Castelli-Squadra
  • Louis Garneau

I'll need a high-res "Weight Weenies" and text and mascot.... I assume we don't want the pixellated one. Or I suppose it wouldn't be too hard to draw the guy.

Also, I think we all agree Starbike should be there for hosting the forum. Fairwheelbikes? Anyone else?

Good luck with the mascot image djconnel, I think this will stump you in this awesome quest.
I wanted to make a cool looking kit a while back but as I researched the mascot image(of an ant?) I discovered that this image may be property of the creators of Sesame Street, specifically "The Twittlebug" characters. If not them, I think the image was made by someone who intended the bug image for personal use, to be used freely as long as money was not going to be made and as long as the creator was credited... blah, blah, blah...
I suggest you draw the ant head slightly different to avoid complications. Maybe the site admins would clear this up?

If you can pull this kit off I would definitely wear it with pride as I get dropped by the bunch.

well that is most unfortunate, but I feel like it was used at least once before on a weight weenie t-shirt

The Twiddlebugs are famous, according to the Muppet Wiki, for coming up with overly complex solutions to simple problems.

Ok...i'm glad we're becoming one! hehe

About the clothes, i think if we choose Castelli or Louis Garneau, we will have very good equipment. I don't have anything of them so i would choose either. I think they both will be ok.

We might ask to Florian for a high res 'weightweenies' text. If Florian doesn't have any, i can ask my father, with Florian's permission, to make a high res text.

As for the ant, well...or we make it at low res as is. It would be perfect if we could get it in high res also but let's not do it if there's some copyright on it :noidea: Drawing with a slight difference is an option. I can ask my father for this also. Let me know.

And i also would choose a full zipper in race fit as in hot days i like to open the jersey. :wink:

it'll be full zip and race cut, don't worry. Looks like it'll be from Castelli-Squadra as well. Probably start a thread about the order once djconnel gets a mockup of the design on their template. Since we are not sure what we are doing about the twiddlebug i figure it's best to wait.

Maybe we just stick with the twiddlebug and figure we're under the Henson (RIP) radar.

DJ, any estimate on how much this might cost for the kit? And I assuming the order will be placed in the US and shipped out from there?

Since I am working with djconnel on this i will interject. The kit will cost roughly 140US$ shipped (based on 50 sets) with a couple of extra options for additional clothing. I feel that this is a competitive price and the final price is to be determined after we collect all the numbers. The more we get the less it'll cost. The most it can cost is 152US$ shipped per person.

Thank you Szczuldo.

I tried looking through the thread, has there been any mention of what kind of padding the bibs might have? Is that something that we can pick individually? Or do we have to decide as a group?
