I thought I'd put the stupid computer to good use for a change and organise a group buy from Oregon Cyclewear.
At this stage it will be for 14+ of the long sleeve jerseys to get the super discount. Otherwise it isn't worth the hassle. If it's a success, I'll do another one for short sleeves in September.
Feel free to nominate the styles that are available from August 1 as it's only 2 weeks away.
Payment will be in advance to the order being placed by bank deposit. Details will be issued after numbers are confirmed and a postage quote is obtained, although it is on their website being US$15 + $5 for each additional, which is US$80. About US$6 / jersey.
Pick up is available from Coorparoo after hours, or Northgate from 6.30am - 3pm weekdays.
Register your interest here or by PM or email. I'll update progress as it becomes likely that it'll go ahead.
I'll take two, so we need another twelve. Or more.

They look pretty cool.
I'd like a black and white one with "Fossil Fuelled" in Campy script.
Can I order one like that or do they all have to be the same?
The price appears to be US$56 plus postage for one. That's not bad

Long Sleeve Wholesale
Purchase any 14 or more
You can mix colors/sizes/styles to reach the wholesale price as long as the name stays the same or no name added.
So no text then. Cheers Munga, well spotted.
(AT) Mt Gower. I sent you a PM.

keep it open for another fortnight. spam the heck out of it and i reckon you'll get there
Just got tipped off about this from the marketplace, I'll put down for 1 if this is still going, and if you'll post to Vic. I'll check back in a couple days, else PM me if still going ahead!
I'm interested, but I'm about to head overseas until the end of August, so you might be waiting for a while before I finalise payment.
Interested in getting 2x Style #6 "Hawthorn" (Red with black and white) to match the two short-sleeve jerseys I bought a couple of years ago.
I'd buy a couple- but I'd like one to be short sleeve. I have one short sleeve already and it is excellent in all the ways that others have commented. Surely he'd give the 14+ price as long as they are all jerseys. Seemed very reasonable when I dealt direct
Be a bit more positive. I've emailed Chad asking if we can have some short and some long in the order, and if we can have some with lettering (though the guys without graphics shouldn't need to share that part of the cost). There were more potential buyers listed above - celeste boy, schurms, mountgower 2, max wanting 6, & me wanting a second one.
Work this out geographically for lowest post cost. I can do Perth and Melbourne, and there needs to be a postal charge for people in different cities. if you want it all sent to Melb then I take Perth and send one parcel each to the most central in the other cities with buyers, we might still make this happen. Just another suggestion if you want. Logistics......
I've just got the reply from Chad:
"Yes you can mix short and long and styles if you like. You can also have
some blank and some with names, as long as the name is the same that will be
on some of the jerseys.

I'm prepared to be as helpful as possible to make this happen, as I posted a few hours back.
3 to go!
Sizes run a little smaller than usual apparently, so please double check the size chart.
Max, are you in for any?
hartleymartin, would you like to finalise your order before you leave?
notwal would like "Fossil Fuelled" in black Athletic Script 1.5inches (the largest allowed for the number of characters). Anyone else who would like the SAME lettering, please make a note on your order to Mount Gower. Only one lettering style per order. notwal gets in first.
Mount Gower, I assume people are also ordering via PM, so can you post when you have enough numbers to proceed?

Add your postal address if required. Postage rates to be determined for best economy according to dimensions.
LONG OR SHORT SLEEVE:
"FOSSIL FUELLED" LETTERING: Yes / No
ADDITIONAL LOCAL POSTAGE OR PICKUP: Postage / Pickup
People, I believe I made my position regarding this matter perfectly clear in the 9th post above.
Regarding the idea of posting these things all over the place, my position on that was made clear in the original post.
It's obvious that I have been talking to myself from the start. I wish you all well with your purchases, which I, apparently not obviously enough, will NOT BE MAKING FOR YOU.
