I'm not too familiar with their pads but they appear to only have one option for a worthwhile looking pad, the other option looks like a piece of leather with no foam.

Here's a picture of my weenie (which I also have in EPS).

If this is okay, I still need a vector form of the weenies text. Anyone know what font that is? I could try to approximate it.

djconnel, great job!
Maybe you could make the weenie slightly asymmetric, like the original one? It might be just nitpicking, but... :)

What part do you want to be more asymmetrical? It already is.

Looked again, guess you are right, it's just not as visible as on this one.

I'll play a bit with the face shape....

The last issue to resolve is jersey sponsors. If Starbike sponsors the forum they should be on there: I emailed them already to see if they want to be. If anyone else wants to be there, let me know.

Yeah man! That looks great already! :thumbup:

I can see that i'm a bit late about fonts and vectors, but ok, you guys know what you're doing! Just count me in for a kit. If i can help with something just let me know.

About the shops, Starbike must be on the jersey as it's their forum. I think Fairwheelbikes may be on, but they have their own jerseys. So maybe they aren't that interested.

So far, it's just Starbike. I figure if anyone else wants to be on, they can let me know....

Thanks! I improved the short panel design (in place, view image then reload) from the previous solid orange. I also placed the Gimp source here if anyone else wants to play.
