This only makes sense if the companies are happy to pay a part of the order, otherwise I can't see a point of being "more pro" by having a random name on my kit. And personally I like the current design, and in contrast i find the Fairwheel one not to my taste.

That's the point, the sponsors are to get some economical support for improving the thing. Otherwise, there's no pint, obviously. I suggest to wait for prendrefeu design or any other alternative design. There's nothing to loose.

So here's just one concept - the week turned ended more busy than I would have liked for work, so I only managed to get in a few hours on this and decided to slightly adopt a concept I had on file. Newer ideas take a bit more time to generate properly, I have a few other ideas that can be drawn up... I can sketch up another concept over the next few days from my hotel room as I'll be traveling if there is a call for it.

Three things:
1. I looked at pricing for Louis Garneau, and I also looked at prices for Champion-Systems... for the price, why aren't we going with Capo?
Their prices are competitive, the quality very high, and minimums are 25 which I think can happen, no?
Anyway, since I had Capo templates on hand, I used those. Use your imagination to switch the mfg logo! Regardless of which vendor we end up with, I can adjust the design.

2. Colors... easily switchable to another swatch pattern.

3. Text. I had to re-do the WW logo. That took a bit of time to get proper, but there it is. I chose to use the common materials as elements instead of sponsors... a bit of tongue in cheek, a bit geeky, but true to our knowledge that Steel, Alumin(i)um, Titanium and Carbon all have their qualities. I included the Ant as a mascot, keeping the little guy in his original, blocky-form. Text on inside of collar is "HOW MUCH DOES IT WEIGH?" and the text on the back panel of the shorts reads "Lighten up." I thought it would be good to have something a little fun on that back panel, since that's what the rider behind you will be staring at when you pull.

Option 1 - Blue and Green are actually flourescent! (Think Italian)

Option 2 - another colour scheme (a classic colour scheme actually....)

Here's my original art:

I really like the "lighten up!" I think that belongs. I also like the diagonal stripes on the shorts. The weenie coming out of the pocket is also cute. The text inside the collar is excellent. My short design is relatively dull. I tried to play with the "WW" motif on the jersey colors. I think that worked out okay. I note you added iron to the material mix. That's interesting... steel is real? I think Rob English has shown you can very much be a weight weenie with Fe. Neither of us is doing much with the sleeves. The trend in pro jerseys has been simplicity, but sometimes a bit of accent can add a lot.

BTW, here's an EPS of the weenie I drew (vector form).

Yes, I would take one of each color for Prend's design.....like black as the main color with accents of third color. Awesome!

I thought the original design wasn't bad, but Prend's new ones are really nice. The blue, black & green is especially good IMHO. The bug coming out of the pocket instead of the butt seam on the bibs is a big improvement. I wasn't planning on getting a kit, but if it's Capo and the new design, then I'm in.

Oh God, no Capo! Every Capo jersey I've owned has ripped at the jersey pockets' stitching in less than a year.

Thanks! :beerchug:

@mdeth: That seems to have been the same complaint with Louis Garneau.
Champ-Sys is the other options people are looking at. I just can't see the pricing being dramatically better than other places.

Ted (xnavalav8r) mentioned a direct contact with Verge Sport. That's another option, maybe a happy medium if the price is right? Their minimum is only 6, which is pretty good and puts less pressure on the order.
