Clydesdales and Athenas Jersey Order Thread - Batch 2

This thread was for Round 2 of the Clyde/Athena jersey. It is now closed. The next order process will start when there is enough interest. Look for a sticky post if you want in.



For actual user sizing reviews from the round 1 order, please check out http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...post-your-pics . It has VERY valuable info and will most likely encourage you to order a size up.




The collar in greater detail:



Short Sleeve Jersey Prices:
XS - 2X - $61
3X - 8X - $71


Long Sleeve Jersey Prices:
XS - 2X - $74
3X - 8X - $84


Long Sleeve FLEECE MOCK TURTLENECK Jersey



Prices:
XS - 2X - $83
3X - 8X - $93


Please note the fleece mock turtleneck has no rear pockets.

This includes US shipping. Shipping to any other country will be the exact difference, initiated through USPS. Canada is + $9


Full, 3/4 and half zippers are available.

The manufacturer says this model short-sleeve jersey is their go-to and hands-down best seller. It is also what the 50+ forum orders and they've been quite happy. Also, women's cut is available! From the Champ-Sys website:

Quote:
We make one women's jersey cut. This cut features a slight hourglass shape, in that it is nipped slightly at the waist so that it has a more feminine curve. The women's jersey also does not have elastic at the waistband. However, some of our female customers order a men's club or race cut jersey, depending on their style preferences.

Please note:
The $10 difference in pricing for 3X and larger is the exact difference from the manufacturer.
This is a not-for-profit effort. My goal is to create it, produce it and facilitate it, but at the same time, not make money and NOT LOSE MONEY on the endeavor. Because of that, I have no room for error. I can't make refunds or changes to completed orders. I can't change sizes after I place the order. Also, I will not be held responsible for size deviations on the manufacturers part, quality issues, tastes, etc. I posted the size charts they gave me, but these I'm sure are coming from China and "should" match the charts. The bottom line is, while I've done everything possible to make sure we know everything possible before ordering, all sales are final.....period.

The company takes a about 6 weeks to produce the order. Prices reflect PayPal fees, postage from the company and postage to you, artwork plus a bit for tape and labels and such. Also, please look the above design over VERY carefully. Again, there can be no refunds!

I will start a spread sheet at the bottom of this post with the orders as I know of them, once I start accepting orders. This way, when you place your order, you can track it and make sure I have everything right.

The first step is to note here that you are ready to commit financially. Please don't post here that you are "thinking about it" or "interested", this post is for "I'm in - let me know when to send the money".

Once we have interest enough for 10 jerseys, I'll send you the PayPal info. In your PayPal payment or in a PM, please include:

Name:
BF Screen Name
Address:
City:
State:
Zip:
Qty:
Gender Style:
Sleeves LS/SS:
Size(s):
Zipper Choice: Full, 3/4 or 1/2 (7")


Here is the size chart from the manufacturer.

I want one. Does the lack of response on this thread mean that there will be no order?

Not at all. What the lack of response means is that the first batch is still in production and everyone who wanted one up until about 3 weeks ago got their order in. My guess is the next order will be around Jan/Feb, but that's just a guess. Keep checking in here.

PhotoJoe - I'm in! The colors match my bike perfectly and I really like the design. Count me in for an XL long sleeved zipup.

Tell me when/where to send the money.

ZmanT

edit - I see I missed the first order. I will check back again soon

I'm in for Batch 2. I hope we can wait to order until after we have Batch 1 in hand, so we can be more confident about sizing. I ordered a long sleeve the first time and would like a short sleeve this go round.

Round 2 will NOT be ready before round 1 is delivered. First, I don't think we'll have the 10 needed to do it that quickly, and two, even if we did, I would hold it until we got feedback from all the round one peeps. That input will be very helpful.

I swore I wasn't going to get into biking clothing. I am such a liar. I got some shorts when my wife and I went bike shopping and now you can count me in on the jersey. When you get ready for batch two let me know. I'm glad it will probably be after Christmas. (I read the thread on the first order so I think I can figure my size.)

I just started a Clydesdale/Athena cycling club in my town. I'll see if anybody wants one of these. We'll be doing an organized ride with a few hundred other people on Memorial Day weekend and it'd be cool to have "team" jerseys.

I would, but I can't swing it at the moment. Put me in for Batch 3.

Well, I've been thinking, if I order one long and one short that will make us at 10 won't it? Heck, it's only money and I don't want to spoil the kids by leaving it to them.

If the order hasn't gone in, please let me know. I'd love my first jersey to be a Clydesdale!

Sorry for the delay. I've been traveling a fair amount with the new job. I got confirmation that we in fact only need 10 jerseys, no matter what zipper, so we're good to go. I'll PM everyone next week with ordering instructions. Thanks for your patience.
