Thinking Hunt3r's credo of "Ride to Eat" + "Eat to Ride" along the side under arm panels would be a nice touch.

I would def buy a Fat Mantis jersey in Finnish.

ok that is awesome, would definitely buy a jersey with that on (possibly with pies on the rear pockets as well)

flapjackin (gbx), Friday, 25 June 2010 00:30 (nine years ago) link

it is finnish for "when come back bring pie" btw, or at least according to google translator

need tuomas to check my finnish

flapjackin (gbx), Sunday, 27 June 2010 01:39 (nine years ago) link

coming together, we're using the mexico jersey as a prototype, deeper chevron on the front, club crest replacing the mexico one. Back will have a larger mantis, pies on the pockets, QTPi(e) logos up the sides. Q. is working on the crest right now, I hope to be able to post that up in a week or so. Might be a fairly slowish process.

Did you check the spelling on the Finnish?

Does anyone have an idea for a typeface for the motto?

Do we want anything on the sleeves?

Also, pls pls pls check the finnish is correct, with an actual finnish person (suggest Charlie Wegelius, who may want to buy a jersey), thx.

side panel (underarm to waist) suggestion (cost permitting):

(L) EAT TO RIDE
(R) RIDE TO EAT

I know it's not original (poached from Hunt3r's bros) but could anything say it better than that?

Essentially any shade you want as they do it by sublimation printing. I like the green from the current maillot vert, too much to have Euskatel orange side panels and chevron? (NB should not be trusted on colours)

I like the idea of a sans serif typeface like the bernard one.

sounds similar to schleck's motto painted on his specialised "I don't dream my life I live my dreams"

should poll best and ugliest TdF strips. Footon Servetoo ftw ugliest.

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Monday, 12 July 2010 19:25 (nine years ago) link

lighter blue (violet ?)instead of navy works best with lime green colorways (according to industry reports!), also reminds me of my vintage adidas oregons trainers.

Cofidis have a good kit. Columbia's is awful. Garmin doesn't do it for me either, Radioshack is a bit robotic. I like Astana's colourscheme but they're tainted. Euskeltal kit is great, but somehow Rabobank isn't. Lampre's over the top. Saxobank is okay.
