Last time I was able to stuff 2 sets of kit (or maybe it was 2 jerseys and 1 bib) into a flatrate envelop which costs ~16$ international and $5 for US. So the shipping costs do not really make it a deal breaker. 40$ for 3 kits would be a deal breaker to me and I hope USPS hasn't increased their prices that much.

With regards to a poll, I want to make the few changes i highlighted in an earlier post and have that in there as well. I'm a bit busy but hope to get that done either late today or tomorrow then we can compare what design is most liked. Once I get that in order I'll put a poll up. Hopefully the whole thing is not split evenly because then we will have issues.

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

It was a lot worse before I put a gap under it.

Please do not put the WW mascot on the jersey. Maybe a very small rendition on the side it's bad enough you have the word weenie emblazoned every where on the kit. :lol:

About the shipping, I think it doesn't matter in the end; all of them could be shipped together to one of the continents and then a person could send them domestically.

I think a poll on the designs would be a great idea.

re: manufacturer, I just happened to look at velominati today and they have a long post about their new kit; http://www.velominati.com/kit/velominat ... lf-hazard/

It seems like there's lots of possible vendors, but for anyone who wants more, the velominati guys seem excited about Kallisto in Poland (http://www.kallistosport.com/index-3.html)

Kallisto is the way to go; polish quality and price. And I go to Warsaw very very often.
Happy Trails !!!

I have organized a couple of Team Kit orders and can recommend Santini. Decent prices, an online design tool up to 24 print areas, great customer service and a good range of shipping options. http://www.santinisms.it/en_team_up.aspx

Seems like this is going to be nice. Eurperg's kit looked best I would say.

Is there a plan for when it will be ordered?

I can facilitate an order through Vie13- no minimums and re-orders at any time once the graphics are in. Solid products, good fits, and excellent chamois. My team and former teams have used Castelli, Starlight, Vie13, Santini, Capo, Sportful, and a few others and the Vie13 kits are still my favorite by far.

I have a Champion System race cut jersey, and I feel that the rear pockets sit way too high and it's difficult to get things out while riding (hell, even when I am stopped). I voted for LG because I have had great experience with them. I also like Verge as I have had several team kits by them and the fit and finish were great.
