Mountain Bike Idaho jersey design is complete!
Brett from Magnuson Design has completed the design of our new Mountain Bike Idaho jersey! The inspiration was a 1960's era Shelby Mustang GT 350 - it's about the license plate, so a car-themed jersey was a perfect fit. The best part is that it looks fast just standing still!
Now that we have the design done, we need your feedback on what style of jersey you prefer when you ride. Do you go for that roadie/traditional style? Or, are you more into the looser, mountain style jersey? What about downhill? Is that your thing? And, for you ladies, do you prefer jerseys that are cut for women? We're going to be using Primal Custom to produce the jersey - they do great work and they even offered us an in-kind donation to keep the price of the jersey down a bit. (Thanks, Primal!) Primal offers custom jerseys in different cuts. We've narrowed them down to four options - the men's sport cut, the men's urban cut, the downhill cut, and the women's cut. The minimum order size is 15 jerseys, but they all have to be of the same style. For instance, you have to order a minimum of 15 urbans, or 15 sports, etc.... - you can't "mix and match" within a 15 jersey order.
So, we need your feedback - which cut do you like best if you were going to order one? We've set up a poll on our Facebook page where you can give us your opinion. We'll leave the poll up for a little while and then choose the top vote getter as the style we'll produce.
Once that choice is made, you will have the opportunity to order through the "Gear" tab on our website. For those of you who have ever ordered a kit or jersey from a cycling club or team, it will work the same way: go to the website, choose your size and pay. We'll leave the order page open for a while to give people time to order. One that time ends, we'll close the order page and submit the order to Primal. It takes Primal about 4 - 6 weeks to make and ship the jerseys. When we get them, we'll mail them out to you or, if you live in Boise, you can pick yours up locally at McU's in Boise. (All the ordering process will be handled by McU's, just like it is with the t-shirts.)
So, give us your feedback and tell us what jersey style you like! We'll post the winner soon and open it up for orders.
