2008 BikeForums Northern California Jersey Type Thing Interest/Discussion Thread.

There's been some hubbub (bub) about a new jersey for this year, and there was demand for a thread, so here it is.

Who wants one? Who wants to organize it? Who wants to design it? Who wants a beer?

Discuss.

I would buy one, but I'd like to see some colors other than black and yellow. Maybe we can get some kind of graphic on the back showing the ocean with giant mountains in the back, or some other kind of landscape.

Watch out for the pesky penguin ... he may show up on the jersey.

I really like the last one, and just wish I'd ordered the vest and long sleeve versions when I could.

I'm sure that, if people wanted, the old design could be carried over in different colors.

If that could be made to seamlessly wrap around, it'd be pretty cool.

Of course, Mount Fuji would have to be replaced with something a bit more regionally appropriate.

I, like every one else, love this piece. But, it's for Northern CALIFORNIA, not Northern Japan...

I'd go for a jersey. I'm pretty sure none of you guys want black and red. So you guys pick.

You seem to ignore the huge asian influence and minority in the bay area. An asian-esque wave would be very appropriate for the jersey.

My only thing is I wish we could find a site that'll do the design on a MTB jersey aswell. Road jerseys are not my cup of tea.

I second Curtis on keeping the design Northern California-esque. If we go asian we risk alienating others. Pun intended.

I want more colors, too. Asian-esque is cool, as long as we can tie it our fair region.

Where does one get the template for designing a jersey? I might have a go at it, if I knew how those things work.

We'd alienate others with a asian style wave? That's the most moronic statement I've ever heard.

I'm going to try and design it.

Hopefully someone is willing to front the jersey thing, if not I'd be willing to do the ordering. But I hope, for my laziness sake someone else is willing to do it.
