Anyone for a jersey or two?

Because Big Steve and probaly Grant can't go a full 24 hours in the same shirt, we will be getting those cheeky kilt wearing lycra stitchers at Endura to pull out the stops and avoid the foul stench of man sweat hanging over the Borders region  like a mushroom cloud of funk.
So, as I have also have several requests from several other VC'ers out there for fine VeloCake apperel the time feels right to order in more threads for you lucky people.

Now if you're a regular viewer/reader of this here rubbish you may well be thinking that, Hey...I'd love one of those shirts to wear on the bike and be the talk of the town, but I'd rather not be covered in corporate advertising for various corporate stuff. 
Then fear not my friend, the next batch of clothing will be going back to the original VeloCake V0.1 jersey. (in my mind the best).

If then you can't contain your excitement and have already maybe leaked a little, leave me your requests and bank account details below.

Remember, Endura don't just do jerseys, there are shorts, gillets, windproofs, white overshoes and most importantly, CAPS. in caps. 
Don't delay, get you orders in fast.

The full range of posibilities are  right here

Eeeeek........pokes eyes out as I'm saving for stuff and the jackets are tooooo nice.

ACTUALLY, shouldn't the team PRO's like Steve and I get freebies? ;-)

VeloCake said...

pfffffffffffffft.

what happened to taking one for the team?
Don't be a sweaty monkey and place that order.

24hours in one pair of shorts is a long time...

VeloCake said...

oh i forgot, Simon uses and recommends their roubaix jackets.

" i've never been happier, they're ace and really cosy. but look great too" he said some time ago.

great for the early morning stages of a 24hour probaly.

jumbly said...

I reckon I might go for a jersey.

Steve said...

I will probably want to prevaricate for a while and then choose something cheap. What is your 'deadline'? Did someone say caps?

grant said...

Right, definitely in for a cap and overshoes.

Other stuff I'll have to think about.

:-)

VeloCake said...

oh big shitty stinks..I emailed endura, who emailed back and they don't do caps no more.
oh well plan B.

grant said...

/sobs into irn bru.......

Oh well. What/who is plan B?

V.C.B.D said...

Plan B is go straight to Plan C!


Unfortunately there is no Plan C!!


V.C. Befuddlement department.

grant said...

Endura don't make *everyone's* caps so there must be other options.

We should check who VCM, SCX, Morvelo etc used... (though the first two probably used Endura at a guess....)

VeloCake said...

hmmm it's a shame endura don't though, because we've already got the "design" and won't have to pay someone else again.

oh well, plan b

al said...

VeloCake said...

champ sys was the plan b. i'm waiting to hear back from them.

Randomly I want some shorts, I can't afford anything so a Jersey is out - I have a drawer full of Jersey's. But the boss told me to get some new shorts last night as most of mine are going see-through. I have some endura bib shorts that I love. They kindly do the bibs with a womens chamois when its your own design stuff. So A has given me permission for a couple of pairs. I realise it is not pro without the jersey but I think that might be a step too far.

grant said...

What's the order deadline?

Any pictures to hand of the shorts or other items?

(Assuming someone bought some in the last run....)

Aminthule said...

Filled with widproof envy I am after seeing yours this morning Mike. I'll have a windproof jacket and cap please!!!!!

Steve said...

See next entry down for who did the Belgian's hats.

Simon said...

Sorry, far too skint for any more stuff :(

Grant - HERE'S Mikey modelling the shorts. They do skinsuits too ;-)

Simon said...

Grant, another shorts pic HERE

VeloCake said...

i was going to ask them to change the shorts a bit, so the red and white strips are smaller and lower down, therefore bringing the lettering into a more prominent position.

also, i got the wrong size. every pair of endura baggies i've got are small. naturally i ordered the small bibshorts, in hindsight i'm a medium.

Mediocre Pete said...

Badly skint at the moment. Some comfy undershorts wouldn't go a miss though.
