Yeah, I wasn't sure about that either, haha.

I'm gonna do some quick mock up for you guys and see what you guys like....as soon as I can find some freeware to help me decipher the format these logos/templates are in.

quick question.

What do you guys think. I'm really close into splurging into getting the Boyds. Currently running rs10 with Schwalbe lugano. I saw on crc the Michelin pro 4 service course. Two tires n tubes for 60$ish.

Or should I look at another tire tube combo?

I have a set of the Michelin Pro 4 Service Course but haven't ridden on them yet. They're the new tires to replace the old Pro Race 3. They are pretty good from what I hear. John and Marvin @ PMS runs them I think.

Or if you want to play it safe like everyone, just get the Continental GP4000s. Before you get new wheels, get new tires first just so you have a back to back comparison.

Don't think you'll find much cheaper for that price point/quality. I would get it personally if I was looking for tires at the moment.

No. I don't think so. There was a lot of old stuff, and by old, I mean outdated shit you and I never heard or or have ever seen. You can go take a look but I am certain you will walk out disappointed.
Well, depends what you're looking for! Old school is the best school! I wasn't too disappointed, but only with the prices. hahaha.

I'm partial to DT Swiss wheels personally, but they are $$$$. Their hubs with the star-ratchet drive mechanisms are bullet proof reliable, simple, and easy to service at home with no tools. I'm riding their 350 hubs laced to R450 rims, which weigh around 1700g. I know I can probably save 100-150g if and when I replace the rims and spokes to something higher end and end up in the sub 1600g range with solid hubs which require no proprietary components.

Sorry guys, ordered a Giro Saros already. I know Giro helmets fit me great, and I found a good deal on Amazon ($75 for them) in a matching color.

But my wallet hurts now. :

Somebody a few pages back was looking for a helmet for a large head. I'd consider myself in that category, the only brand that seems to consistently fit me well is Bell. Giro doesn't work at all for me. I think my head shape is more 'squared', a lrg Giro will pinch the top sides of my head while the top of my head doesn't actually contact the top of the helmet.

This is kinda the colour scheme I had in mind.

But feel free to throw in your opinions.

Also how big/where the logos should be and/or colours and where the colours should be.




(I have no idea how to make the saved image larger, I'm a n00b at this stuff. Used GIMP)

I might be out for the jersey buy for now, but I honestly think that the logo for Parallel coffee is way too big. All they're offering is a 'free upgrade', so it doesn't make sense to basically advertise them that much.

I don't think you need to worry about the 49th logo being TOO big. It is just a mock up and IRL, I think it's big too. It will be downsized but still legible. I ain't no graphic artist, yo.

Here's a mock up with the logos reverse and Performance One logo a bit bigger (for fairness). I also took in Steve's idea about the contrast arm band. I think white would be the most fitting but I have sampled blue, dark green, white, and pink (for you homos ).

Always up for new ideas.



And I figured out how to make the image bigger, my compression level was OVER 9000.

Also something like this:
1.

Or this
2.

I got a big head and decided to get the bell Volt. Fits great and doesnt enlarge my head too much!
