2014 41 Jersey – Intent to buy

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

2014 41 Jersey – Intent to buy

Please only vote on a design if you intend to buy the jersey. Thanks!

I allowed multiple selections for the poll. If you like more than one design vote away but, again, only if you intend to buy the jersey!

Here are the designs:

DESIGN 1



DESIGN 2 (same as "DESIGN 1" but with "ROAD FORUM" on left chest)



DESIGN 3



DESIGN 4 (same as "DESIGN 3" but with "ROAD FORUM" on left chest)



DESIGN 5 (the zebra)



DESIGN 6



The main point of this thread is to get a tally of buyers. I need to make sure we can fulfill the minimum (15) before putting any effort into proceeding. Even though the minimum is 15 I will only proceed if we get at least 20 people interested in a jersey. The extra number will account for people who don’t follow through with the final order, potentially sticking me with a bill.

Here are the basics of what you need to know:

Production and distribution: Primal Wear Cycling Apparel

Product: Jersey only (sport cut, fit is in between a slim race and looser club cut)

Cost: $70-75

Shipping: $10

Logistics: Once the design is fully approved, Primal will open a "Team Store" and provide me with a link. I will share that link to you guys, you guys create an account and place your order, pay in full + shipping. After 2 week of the Team Store opening, the Team Store will close and no more orders can be processed. The jersey goes into production and gets shipped.

Timeline: Last year we started the process around July 4th and shipments went out ~ September 20th. I am hoping for a faster turn around time with the design being so similar to last seasons.

It is important that I get an accurate estimate of people genuinely interested in buying a jersey because if we don't make the minimum by the time the store closes I will have to pay out-of-pocket for the remaining product to meet that minimum. Last year we hit 25 jerseys, let's try and top that!

If there is anything I am missing, feel free to ask questions.

I picked 1, 3, and 5. I like the use of the "41" rather than the "Road forums" If i had to narrow it down more it would go 1, then 5, then 3. I like the use of the white/black contrast on #1 , and as gnarly as #3 looks, I love the shoulders.

Same here but 3 is growing on me. I would like to see HTFU more visible but that's not a deal breaker

Way better results than the first time around. Not quite hitting those minimums yet!

Performance/Champion Systems doesn't have minimums. We could get both of the top voted designs. You may want to check into it.

I've heard terrible things about Champ Sys. There are a few other with no minimums but I think the per unit price is higher. I will do some research.
