Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I say pull the trigger on the jerseys. You'll never get everyone to agree on one thing. I mentioned it before - I am in for a Large jersey. Thanx!

Right now we don't even have the minimum for the jersey.

Surely there are other quality manufacturers with a lower minimum. I'll say it, I like Primal. A lot. Half of my collection is Primal. I say this not for the designs, which are hit or miss, but for the fit. They make race and club, have lower minimums, and make a quality product.

Wonder if I'm the only Primal fan in this thread?

If we do primal, I need to change my sizing. My two primal jerseys fit me like...


Honestly folks, capo is quality gear, it fits true to size and will last as long as you care for it. I have two pair of capo bibs that are fantastic, a short sleeve jersey that fits nice and snug the way a jersey should, and a long sleeve wool jersey that fits a little tighter than the short sleeve jersey, but perfect for keeping in heat on colder mornings. You're paying for quality kit here, not some cheap crap that will only last one season. Honestly, do you want a quality kit representing bike forums or not, this isn't rocket science.

Anyway, since it looks like this is dead in the water, thanks to Enjoi and David Broon for their work on trying to put this together. Too bad it couldn't come to fruition.

I have to second this. I've done a few kit orders, and Capo has been far and away the most helpful that I've ever worked with. The rep I've got hangs out in BF, and has really gone above and beyond to try and make this work. Not gonna lie, I'm kinda sad this isn't looking like it will work out, and I really want to thank Enjoi for putting so much time and effort into this.

Any way to jump start it? Maybe going forward to the ordering step would bring some doubters out of the woodwork.

I might get kallisto to do a one off just for me. Is it ok for me to use the design?

I will stay in if this remains alive

I'm afraid to say that I would not order just the jersey. I was looking for a kit with another set of bibs to rotate through.

It's classy, but I'm looking for a full kit.

Feel free. I can hand over any needed files, just let me know. Definitely too bad this might not work out but at least the design is always there in case it gets revived. Thank you as well David for facilitating pre-production.

I don't understand bailing out because this is taking a while to develop. WTF? It's not like it is costing anyone effort while waiting. What difference does it make how long it takes? When the time comes, there will be a trigger thread to let everyone know to order I guess. What could be easier?

We live in a society that runs on instant gratification.

Personally, I only have enough money for 1 kit and I can only order one for another week...

Once I go away to college, I won't have the funds for this kit. That's personally why I'd drop out if this doesn't take off by August 1st (I'll be out of town June 28th - July 14th).

That doesn't make any sense. You can spend the money on a kit now but not when you go to school? As in, you'll just be in the hole when you start school if you bought the kit? I'm confused.

Of course it makes no sense. Just walk away from the instant gratification people who attempt to use some f'ed up logic to justify their impatience.
