Thoughts?



I've had a look, it appears to be about $56 per jersey, then I'd have to add in a pre-paid post bag (I think they're around $8 anywhere in oz) for us Raturday guys it would be pick up on a ride.

So let's say about $64 per jersey, we could decide on colours (just follow the link) as I'd suggested earlier, either BNA Retro Riders or Retro Riders on the front with 'Steel is Real on the back (colour font is only for highlighting purposes), probably better to advertise them on the Retro page in the serious bicycling section of this forum, I'd think advertise for a closing date 3 months away, if it happens shortly then jerseys would be very close for xmas delivery.


Ok, munga was going to discuss this with me on Saturday, we've got another suggestion, have a chew, think it over & fire in your thoughts.

Mission Brown thanks. :)
Thought from your redbubble you've got a design background.
I can whack up a design as well - would also like to request that under no circumstances should comic sans appear on any part of said jerseys....

nice job.

i reckon the sleeves needs the colours of a nation...at least a cycling country, french, italian, belgian, uzbekistan or plainly black/white??

different font on the steel is real...

maybe BNE going down on the side of the jersey or Brisbane or one side BNE, other side AUS

Stay tuned.
On another note, the new 46/16 gearing on the purple meanie will be just about right for Raturday.

Working off Munga's model and Vaeske's suggestions - something like this? It needs a simple bicycle vector on the back and RHS chest - haven't found one I'm happy with yet.

On your design munga-- not sure about the bike, don't know why but it just doesn't really grab me, it may just be my taste


Dan-- Putting Brisbane on the side means that only local riders will buy it, thus reducing the amount on the order, the more you order the cheaper they get, I'd like to see the Retro Riders BIG on the front, so my idea would be like Dan's with Retro Riders on the front, maybe BNA where Brisbane is & I reckon that would look OK (now if I just had computer skills to do a dummy on the forum).

just ride down man!

okay, I like mungas front with "Retro Riders", maybe do Steel is Real on both sides of the waist. country colours on the sleeves and maybe BNA/BNE/AUS (can change this per city as well)

thoughts?

Plenty of street parking in Browning St. That's where I met the guys last week.

Diggerdan, if we're starting at 7am then I'll come down South Pine Road onto South Pine Road (yep I ride all 3 'section' of South Pine Road daily), then down past the Evo Park shops around 6 to 6.15am, half an hour earlier if we're going at 6.30, you can meet me around there somewhere if you want to ride in, I'll be on the Vertex (shouldn't be hard to spot as it's the only one of it's type I've ever seen).

That way we can ride home & it'll save my legs from Vaeske. :lol:

I'd say yes, however I need to be back at EP for 10am, so it'll be a car run in for me. This week only o_O
