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

Custom Jerseys

So for the MS 150 ride in April I am team captain for a small team and we are interested in ordering some custom jerseys. It looks like the cheapest place to get good looking jerseys from with a small order is to get it from Champion Systems (http://www.champ-sys.com/). I've heard their jerseys are ok. Is there anyone else I should be looking at? How long do I need to give them? They say 8 weeks.

woodinville guy, their quality is OK for their pricepoint. The zippers are smooth, the fabric withstands a good number of washings, the color doesn't fade quickly, and the rear pockets are sufficiently deep. The amount of "lead time" they suggest is very optimistic. My club has a three-color design and it took them 15-16 weeks to complete the first jersey/jacket/vest order. Allow more time to avoid disappointment. You'll be pleased with the result.

If you wish for a slightly nicer product, aim a little higher on the target. Good luck and best wishes for you and your team at the MS 150 ride!

If I aim higher what is the next step up? The Sugoi or Garneau stuff or Hincape and voler? Are their lead times any better? I guess I need to order at the first of the year.

Sugoi, Garneau, and Pearl Izumi is definitely an upgrade. Voler is decent. You could go wild and seek premium gear like Assos, Castelli, Descente, or De Marchi.
You would have to determine their minimum order quantity for custom gear...which might make the initial price of admission pretty steep. Certainly top-notch team kit.
