EZpins.com

Stumbled across this ... you pay $, send your jersey, they sew reinforced pin holes and send it back.

Ok... have fun with this one.

I like anyone who takes a chance on a new business idea. I wish them luck, but I don't really see myself using anything like that. All of our numbers are different sizes, I like to use 8 pins per number, etc....

Yea, our numbers are different sizes here too. Sometimes in the same field of the same race.

A better measure might be jerseys/season over seasons/jersey

Well my former team only did kit orders when their graphic artist felt like re-designing one, so in ~5 years we did 2 orders. They still haven't done one since 2009.

Sponsor changes drive kit changes here.

I like the idea of this but it isn't practical.

He races and now sponsors at Wells; so, I appreciate that (and he has beaten me by 1-2 places a couple of times -- he has a decent sprint). Personally, the service doesn't do it for me. But, he is giving it a go and I respect that. Perhaps the academic side of me -- that is, easy for me to say because I don't have anything "real" invested -- at the least, it is indeed awesome to actually follow through and do this as it generally takes lots of guts, and I hope he learns a lot from the experience. However, yes, Creaky, I'm there with you, I don't see sufficient value. Just based on meeting him and seeing his website, I think there are many positive experiences he could leverage toward another effort in the future.

ya know... if he's a racer and also good with a sewing machine, he might be able to make money doing lycra repair, replacing chamois, etc. Also, racing in the Texas heat, I'd love to have an extra pocket right behind my neck, to put ice in....
