Blue jersey plus Knicks for me and socks. I would have be fine with the black jersey if that ended up being the only option however.

Not interested here as my current BNA kit is still going strong.

Is just socks an option? If so count me in for a few pairs

Keep voting, we need numbers to keep the price down and I will be monitoring the tally.

With socks there is a minimum order (48 pairs) so would have to bundle it up.

Definitely a black kit for me. The one problem with losing weight means my current BNA kit no longer fits :-(

You should have put in your survey an option to click:
"Interested, but I'm female"!

Christopher has already stated that women's sizes are available:

Don't worry, I asked the question too :-)

I voted blue jersey and knicks, but I would prefer long sleeves.

I still have a 'Ye Olde" BNA jersey which I really like but I've always wanted a BNA T-shirt for my casual commutes on the MTB. Must be cheaper than cycling gear and can be worn off the bike - just thinking out loud here.

I have polo shirts made up for me and they are more semi casual rather than sporting or casual wear. Nice but not special.

For T-Shirts I would get attractive themes but was always concerned about the quality, cheap ones are popular but quickly disappointing.

I've voted for a black jersey. Given finances at the time this actually happens, knicks and socks would be a distinct possibility

I would be interested in a longsleeve jersey, but visibility really needs to increase dramatically for winter/night use. I won't ride with anything less than full fluoro or white on top if I'm playing in the traffic and it's dark. It's only a 5% improvement but every little bit counts.

Fluro wont happen.

I do get it and that's fine - and personally was generally wearing the blue jersey on the road however hi-vis safety gear is not the direction.
However for both the corsa and strada cycling jerseys we upgraded to 3M reflective striping on the seams (forms a H pattern) so some consideration has been given to this.

It's quite a tension, tbh. I think the kit looks great, hard to imagine a better design, but it's not a racing kit opportunity for me, so it needs to be seen at night on the road. I've got a Trek MTB kit that is all black and that certainly won't get a run during the commutes :shock:

I'd take the blue jersey or kit probably. My old jersey ended up ripped in an accident. Need a new one in small size. Any jersey larger than that is far too loose.

Still the same brand I take it?

I would go with Tineli - I was very happy with the service and everyone would agree, that while they weren't as cheap as some others, the quality was there and longevity (except of course though who have torn or ripped).

If you are club racing, you kind-of need to wear the club kit although it may not be enforced. (guess who designed the waratah logo / flower! - I provided feedback on the current jerseys though the design came from the supplier).

Unfortunately being female and quite well endowed most cycling kit is waaaaayyy to small :( . Trying to find something (not in pink) that is a generous sizing is my life's work - still haven't managed yet but am still trying. :)

The mens and women's sizes available suit a broad range so suit BNA members who go across the entire spectrum.
Kids 76 cm - XS 88cm - XXXL - 116cm chest.
They jerseys are however the race / slim fit so not as generous as their regular jersey.

I know that there are a few women's specific brands about which I assume cater to women even better.
This UK brand is not race specific though have more tailored cycle wear: www.velovixen.com

No exact dates, I am aiming to get a good order volume to help get the prices down - which of course is passed on to members.

This is still alive - we have ca. 70 items (counting knicks and jerseys - but not socks). We need to get this over 100 to get better pricing which in turn is passed on to all.

To provide ball park estimate - it is ca. $200 for the kit and everyone I know who was in the previous round will vouche for it - I am still wearing the kit which is over 18 months old now. I got both the blue (strada) and black (corsa) top and riding on the road for higher visibility, favour the strada.
