50 forum jersey update

I'm back from the Seattle to Portland ride.
While I was in hotel rooms before and after I worked on teh jersey, using feedback I got here.
I changed the color. Many weren't in love with yellow, and really, I'm not either.
I added some small details to make it look more finished.
The weird small logo on the front is required by the jersey maker, but I'll see it it can be moved up a hair (It's where it is because that's where it shows on their template)

So, here is my plan:
IF you want this for sure, and are willing to pay about $50-60 for it, say so on this thread. If we get 12 I'll post details on payment, and when I get the money I'll order.
I'm not making money on this. Actually, I'm taking a small risk in that I need to put up 1/2 the money on my card before the order for them to create the design and proof it.

Please the the other thread on jerseys for size and style info. Short sleeves, sleeveless, long sleeves are available. Womens, mens club and mens racing cuts available.

Red Rider and I will want one sleeveless each, medium mens race cut and small womens. Why don't you use Paypal for downpayment on the orders. I can send you a paypal when you tell me how much I owe you. Don't forget to estimate shipping charges. Thanks for taking this on. I know it is not easy.

Yeah, maybe duct tape and magic marker?

I kinda liked the yellow design, too. It matches the stripe down my back.

As I understand it, they all have to be the same everything. But you will look so fine in red.

Golly Gee, Digital Gee, I had just figured each rider would personalize their jersey with their own artistic and regional pie stains. It would become a mark of pride and commitment. More stains would indicate higher status riders, clean jerseys would show you to be a mere newbee.

And yet you ask for stain resistant? Hello?

Red is THE color in these parts ... it being Wisconsin Badger country. But I hate wearing red, in fact, I don't own a single red article of clothing, not even a t-shirt. Can't remember ever owning one. But that isn't to rain on anyone else's parade. I'm not lobbying for a color change, just asking if there was an option. So if you are counting, Curtis, for the time being, don't count me in. However I think you did a very good job on the design.

Now as to why I ride a red bike ... well, it was a very good deal. I'd love to paint it blue.
