i believe a logo that is made from the same material as the felt lettering. it's not sewn on but held on with some heat activated adhesive. like the puffy-lettered t-shirts people wore in the 70s...

Next track day: I get Fridays/Saturdays off. I'd love to head down as soon as possible.
Alleycat: Oh man ... that's tempting. Too bad I'd get pwned but it sounds like a blast.
Jerseys: I'm in for at least one. Let's try not to make them tacky.

You know the non smoking sings you see with a red circle with a line through it; most shops have this in the front window with old taz replacing the smoke. You may have a hard time finding someone to do it. I think I have a sewing needle and thread around ,I may need some Indian ink though.
LOL. All in good fun mate.

I'll do some digging on a patch think that would be the coolest? on your bag somewhere. not much of a jersey guy a t would be great. My 2 cents.

My patch idea, a logo in the background maybe a fixed wheel or bike. Lettering would be something like?

Update from Mike @ Forest City:

Let's look at this Wes - the first Sat in July is July 1st Canada Day. My wife would kill me if I took off to the track for the day.
How about 8th or 15th?
Let me know and I'll check with the track Bossman to see if I can have the track 10-2pm on those dates.

Here's the deal, to save me hours of e-mailing, YOU have to provide me with a class. I need at least 4 and a max of 8 but I'll take your 9 group.
If too many of you back out (to take us below 4) I'll have to cancel it.

Ok, the ball's in your court.

--------------------------------------

What do y'all think? If operator can't make it until August, I ain't waiting. Sorry dude.

I'm not sure it would shrink that much. We shall see though. Maybe I'll just get one and give it to someone else if it doesn't fit.

Well, you have boobs and most of use are pretty scrawny, so I'd say it's a safe bet that your jersey will fit someone else if it just refuses to fit you.

Edit: wait, I had that wrong in my head. girl + boobs = scrawny no-chest guys ... or something. *sighs, gives up*

Haha. No sweat. So what is the colour scheme going to be and what is going to be written on it?

I vote red/white/black and "Toronto Fixed".

why? we're from toronto not fort collins colorado. besides, we can get it made with whatever we want on it. imagine rolling out on a sunday morning group ride in matching wool club jerseys...the style mongers will swoon!

true that.
I guess shelling out a bit more for custom would be def. worth it. especially w/ the super coolness factor!

Btw,
I have a HUGE favour to ask of BF members. I've convinced my friend into trying out fixed. But he’s short on money and he’s leaving for Brazil at the end of the month. I have everything he needs except for a fixed wheelset.
So I was wondering if it is possible to rent a fixed wheelset from anyone here for about two weeks?
Anything will do.
Thanks!
