    Cycling/Racing Caps

    Does anyone know of anyone producing cool racing/cycling caps, where I can get one (Besides eBay, of course)? Seems like a suprisingly difficult item to find.

    Thanks, yeah, I've spent time searching around with no great results, figured I'd ask here. I'm looking for a traditional racing cap either without logos or just something a little different.

    Your bike shop doesn't have any? You are talking about the little tight caps with the tiny brims right? I know Nashbar and Performance carry them. I have a couple, a ritchey, a USPS, and a Syncros, I like them for when its colder out under my helmet.

    I've got a Rivendell that I dig for it's style - kind of old school looking.

    In a past thread someone came up with his friend's site, http://gerikmade.circlethata.org/

    I think he's making solid color and/or custom caps....correct me...?

    My LBS has a bunch. I picked up a black Syncros one. My wife says I look like a dork when I wear it. Check with your LBSes as I'm sure they'll have some stashed away somewhere. If not then check the aforementioned Nashbar/Performance and Colorado Cyclist.

    Since I started poking around for these things, my girlfriend is now actually thinking of starting up a small business specializing in making these vintage-style caps... customizing them with different materials and/or screenprinting them with custom designs. What do you guys think? Any thoughts or ideas?

    I wear them off the bike just because I like them. Does that make me a bike dork, or just a dork?
