retro jersey w/ white sleeves?

Ok, I want one, and I guess I'm willing to go to ChampSys and whatnot to get these produced. Anyone else want them?

(Also, to the designer of this jersey, can you pm me the design so I can post it here? Thanks )

That would be me. Here's the links to the full sized jpegs on my website:

White:
http://www.rubberbug.com/bf/Retro_jersey_VerA05_lg.jpg

Blue:
http://www.rubberbug.com/bf/Retro_jersey_VerB05_lg.jpg

They might need some work before manufacturing, so let me know so I can help. My only request is that any changes go through me.

Someone in another thread indicated that the wraparound of the logo is a problem because it might not line up in all of the sizes. Check with the manufacturer before ordering, do not drive under the influence, your mileage may vary, etc, etc...

One more thing... it's kind of funny to see the different jersey threads with everyone plugging their favorites. I do like mine, but there were some other great ones as well. All I ask is that, when the dust settles, if someone actually does make one of my designs, let me know so I can get one.

That makes three of us...oh, four since we're counting tinrobot.

I really, really like this one though, even if the BIKEFORUMS part is so blatantly advertised, so I'd go the distance to have it made. Anyone else? Anyone?

(I still think Bikeforums and SoCal should be switched, but like people said on the other retro jersey thread both having BF logo or SoCal in prominence have points for and against them. I'm of the "travel a lot and want people to know I'm from SoCal" and "don't want uberforumgeekness advertised" camps, lol. I leave the final decision to tinrobot though.)

If the design can work with the panels vs stripe, I'd probably be in for one of those. I likey.

Even without the branding, it has a cool retro-look.

If you get one, that makes 6! You can cover up the socal part with tape or something.

I only wear long sleeves. Yep, even in summer. The closest I own to a road bike (without a gas tank too) is a cyclocross bike. So I'm not likely to wear a short sleeve jersey.

Bet they can get you a long sleeve version, especially if production goes to ChampSys.

Why don't BFers ever get clothes done by Voler? I think they're much better than ChampSys.

Typically, it's been a matter of cost, convenience, and minimum orders.

Yeah, I guess Voler is a bit expensive.

On another note, I completely missed out on other jersey designs. Can't find them anywhere now. Has this design been finalized or is the poll still open? I would love to look at the other designs.

Imagine a watermelon being dropped from a two story building and there you have the current state of the Bike Forum jersey poll.

Voler has a per-color charge also, because of the printing process. A screen is made for each color. Champion use dye sublimination, so they do not need to make seperate passes for each color.

I think this one was my second favorite after the blue-sleeve version, so include me in if there's a 3x or 4x option. And yes, I'll wear this with black shorts.

I really like the jersey, but would replace bikeforums with California/ Los Angeles/ etc...
Seems like the whole BF jersey isn't such a welcomed idea.

They do custom jerseys but there's a 100 piece minimum order @ $39.50/pc for short sleeve and $43/pc for long sleeve...hmmm...

Now how to get 100 people to order this jersey...
