    I like the subtle clydesdale alone. Gets the message across. As some have said... clydesdale don't always occur as a result of donuts, beer and sofa use...

    Just my .02 cents.

    I'm sure that getting consensus is like herding cats, but..
    I like the subtle "just a clydesdale" concept,
    preferably a high-vis shirt.

    Love the Clysdale pulling a cart of beer behind. Keep it up - I think I'm burning a bunch of calories just laughing in this thread!

    Will you guys please stop posting the horse butt. It burns my eyes

    How about Clydesdale across the shoulders in the back in a arch pattern with a realistic picture of the actual horse (no butt close ups). How about a sponser or two to help with the cost?

    I like the idea of a Clydesdale (horse) pulling the peloton. I like the image of a majestic Clydesdale all by itself on the jersey. I really DON'T like the sumo horse butt, anything with donuts, or spent beer cans, or dented sofas. I want to buy something that I'd feel proud to wear riding in a century, something that legitimizes the big guy rider, not perpetuates the stereotypes.

    Not that I don't have a sense of humor I know that I've got a Body by Ben & Jerry's (that I steadfastly maintain with fried shrimp and chicken fingers), but I don't want to be B & J's rolling billboard.

    I like several of the ideas so far, but just thought I would toss out an idea that just came to me.

    I like wearing yellow because of visibility, and one day I was harrassed on my driver and then cut off by another driver in one 20 mile ride. I don't remember if it made my final version, but in a draft of my letter to the editor, on bicyclists' rights to the road, I mentioned that my 3X yellow jersey should have made me as visible as a school bus.

    So, when an earlier post mentioned hi-viz... what about a school bus theme?

    Maybe the front of a bus in the front, and on the back... well, that would be the back of the bus... with the bus lettering somehow indicating Clydesdale. And maybe in one (or both) have a toonish clydesdale driving or looking out the window...

    OK, I hate it when my mind goes so many places at once...

    How about "Clydesdale Powered" in large letters on the front... A Slow Moving Vehicle symbol with a Clydesdale in the middle for the back, and a school bus on each of the side panels?

    Well, I have taken enough of your time for now... go ahead and read the next post.

    I'll wait until the 17th (Gives us a week) and then draft a few ideas.

    Then I'll post a poll and we'll see how the response is. I'll post on this thread or link to the post on this thread. So, keep a look out here.

    (Silverserpent said ealier that he had thought about doing this. If he (OR ANYONE) has advice on getting jerseys made, I'm all ears. I'm only doing this for the laughs. I'd gladly hand it off if somebody actually has an easy way to make this happen...)

    For the record I'm definitely a Clyde, 6'1" 254 as of this morning, but I ain't no slow moving vehicle. I typically complete 20+ rides on moderately hilly terrain at about 16-18 mph. I typically burn up the little guys with their spindly little quads on the hills. If it is cool, I'm in for under $60 and a club fit XXL.

    My cousin owns a silk screen machine - if we supply the jerseys he'd print them fairly cheaply plus we could keep the silk screen to order future ones. I almost think it would be better if we came up with a design that people were happy with, then printed to order. It may take a little longer to get them out but then no one's stuck with 100 shirts and out $xxx

    Perhaps another idea would be to try to go through an existing organization as a fund raiser - either BF or Times-Up where people would be interested in them beyond this thread.

    Ideas...ideas....

    I thought about the slow part after the fact.

    I have thought it would be interesting to have a jersey with a Slow Moving Vehicle symbol in general. It wasn't intended to label clydesdales as slow, even if some of us are.

    I do still like the text on the front and an image of a clydesdale on the back.

    Great thought, though.

    Ya know we're re-inventing the wheel. Team Clydesdale (USA) has one. Damned if I can actually find it, though.

    Found this as a sticker and t-shirt:

    You can use www.cafepress.com to create the jerseys in whatever quantity you want.

    I like the idea of the big man pulling a peloton

    I'm a Clyde and I'd definately be in.

    In an earlier thread I said I'd wait a week for ideas and post the poll on the 17th.

    In my mind, the first one I am designing (keep in mind I have almost no artistic ability -- I am an idea guy) is:
    a clydesdale on a bike pulling a Beer wagon (like the Bid Clydesdales) at a starting line* with a thoroughbred next to him with a bottle in his water cage.
    (Some tag about "the clydesdale may not win the race but he never looses the party.") -- It is still in the idea phase.

    * or maybe approaching the finish line with them neck and neck... (In respect to the guys who said, "I'm a clyde but I'm not slow...)

    (The funny thing is, I could see a whole line of shirts with this theme, like the Big Dog shirts... Cartoon horse wearing bicycle helmet saying, "Hi, I'm Mr Dale." On the back, "You can call me Clyde.")
    Inside me is a thin man dying to get out.
    (He is kept comfortable by some pie, a half case of Bud, two cheese-dogs and a big screen Sony.)
