Oh man! If they had an Athena version I'd be...spending money I really shouldn't. I guess it's better that they don't.

I like this a lot, but I wish it came in smaller sizes. I'm just around 200 (technically a clyde) but I only require a large jersey. Also, a general gripe, why the heck are new jersey's $75?! It's a dryfit with a zipper, it should cost $20.

2XL minimum size, excellent.

As for the price, that's the going rate for non-sale custom jerseys. Like it or leave it.

Excellent indeed; but won't the "little people" feel discriminated against?

Not a bad looking jersey. It reminds me of when we did a C/A forum jersey. We did 3 rounds of orders, however, stopped when Champion Systems made 3x their largest offering.

Bummer, I would buy short and long sleeved jerseys.

Apparently Aero Tech does customs, have you looked at asking them?

I haven't. The interest fizzled and I let it drop.

Thank you. It was a labor of love, for a lot of people. I was amazed at how well it was designed "by committee". The only things I would have changed would be smaller badges on the arms and pure red. Right now, it's a touch too orange. But yah, it was well received.

Design by committee can be hit and miss but in this case may have been helped by actually having to wear the design.

There are currently 432 members in the Clydesdale and Athenas group on Strava. I wonder how many here. I wonder how many are actually active. I still think there is a market; the thing is to reach it.

It's one of my favs, it always gets noticed (or maybe it's just how awesome I look in it?). Mine needs a little bit of touch up (maybe a red sharpie) from my wreck last year, didn't tear the jersey, but I hit hard enough to knock the color off.

I ordered by clyde jersey from Aero. I like the design, I love the black red and white committee design. If you do decide to do another, count me in.

I'd be happy to work out shipping to the UK as long as you're ok paying whatever the actual difference is.

Let's move this conversation here:

I shouldn't have hijacked Jarrett's thread! Sorry, bud.
