I obviously missed the humor in the attempt of removing the flags, and would echo the fact that it was in poor form. However, I didn’t miss the sarcasm and arrogance. I can’t speak for all of us that missed the meeting, but I for one was TDY, and would expect a little better transparency on the process that was decided on by the fellowship of the 6 people that had the decency to show up to the meeting. I guess the rest of us heathens shall rot in hell forced to watch NASCAR on repeat, while wearing NASCAR jumpsuits.

Ok, all joking, poor form, bovine-feces, NASCAR, fashion police, synchronized swimmers, heathens, hobbits, and douches aside … this process was started with good intentions, and these were the elements we agreed upon:

Colors: Red, Black, and White.
Club Name: The club name should be a focus. The website www.kmccycling.com should be included at least once.
Motto: "Wer Rastet, Der Rostet." Or superior motto.
Club Mascot: A Boar.
Flags: German and American flag. The current alternating position at the end of the sleeves is preferred.
Font: Artist's preference.

http://kmccycling.forumieren.com/t930-kmc-cycling-jersey-design-submissions

We will maintain all of these elements, just as we set out to do. Some of the design submissions that people submitted, liked, lobbied for, and voted on, did not include all of these elements. Indicating that some things were not as important, and the overall look of the jersey was what we were going for. My fault for not calling this out during the selection/voting process.

John has done a lot of work on revising the final design from my napkin sketch. He posted his work, without flags, and everyone supported it. He stated the question, very clearly in this thread, asking for opinions and comments. The question was raised, and that is how this whole thing got started. This was very transparent, and absent a poorly fielded/received joke, there is no harm. We have until the end of the month, even longer, to get our art into Voler, and still ship the week of the 21st.

We set out to try to please the majority of the club, and we are still trying to do that by polishing this design up. We have come a long way from our days as a NASCAR pit crew, by removing all of the sponsors from the jersey! The order deadline is currently the 29th, short of moving that forward, which I don’t believe is possible, nor realistic, we cannot accelerate anything at this point.

I have a lot of time, and about a $100 in shipping costs to arrange the fit kits, invested at this point. As John stated, he has a lot of time invested in multiple designs, as well as the club logo/website. I have had my doubts about meeting the minimum order quantities from the start. If this little “burp” has left some folks chapped, and are no longer interested in ordering jerseys, please speak up. At this point we can still cut our losses. If your still in the mood for some bitchin’ warthog clad cycling gear, please read some of the design concerns in this thread, and offer your suggestions.

I’ll post up as soon as I have the kit’s in my hand.

Gonna keep this post short:
Didn't look closely at the final pic to catch that the flags were gone... my bad.
John and Mike, thanks again for all the time, effort, and your hard earned money, having been through it myself, I know how difficult it isto keep everyone happy and still move the process forward.
I still plan on ordering a kit no matter what it ends up looking like.

Post by MJ on Thu Oct 11, 2012 5:24 pm

OK, the fit kit is in my hands. I will try to make myself available so we can get everyone sized, and ship this stuff back.

Tomorrow 1600 ish- 1700 near the Kleber Gym for starters. I work on Kleber, so this is convienent for me.

Don't expect house calls, but they may be entertained with promises of beer, and/or food.

Call me for appointments.

would it be possible to get the kit to the Wagau marathon on Saturday? Maybe someone from the KL area who is riding the marathon could bring it.

I always figured there was something odd about you MJ. How about I swing by your casa with a Mavic freehub for you this weekend, and I can try on a jersey. Mens kit though please.

You should give the Woman's kit a whirl. Very supportive! In other kits, I feel like a busted can of biscuits, but not in the Voler woman's kit!

My casa has moved, but I may be at the old place. Just let me know when.

SORRY - No fitting today at Kleber. I have a medical emergency with the dog, and can't guarantee time or place.

Please call me and we can set something up.

If not, it might be best to set a convenient meeting time and place, like the restaurant at the Landstuhl castle on Tuesday at 6:00pm or whatever works. We want to make sure everyone who is interested has a chance to try the stuff on, this will help us get to our 15 piece order.

Also for the jersey design, I like the flags, either on the collar or around the sleeve. Don't care for the shields, not sad to see those go.

That's my two cents on both topics.

I'll come out tomorrow, pre marathon, but not sure ill ride.

As for the meeting, it's a good idea. I'm not sure the restaurant will appreciate us using their establishment as a dressing room, that is why I set up today at the gym.

At the vet in Landstuhl, Goldberg, feel free to stop by.

Open for ideas... KMCC, Southside gym, etc.?

Sunday afternoon at the KMCC would work. Maybe 1530-1700 ish? I could post up on some tables by the bathrooms. Would anyone be interested in dropping by for a fit test?

I was considering checking out some roller derby action tomorrow evening at the university in Kaiserslautern. Anyone interested in meeting up there? First bout is at 1700 I think, double header. Beer and babes on roller skates bashing into each other. Pretty entertaining!

KMC Cycling Team Store - Voler - Page 3 Empty Fitting today @ KMCC 1530

Post by MJ on Sun Oct 14, 2012 8:56 am

Ok, I'll be at the food court of the KMCC at 1530 today. If you have not done so, please post up, or call/text if you plan on coming by. This way I know how long to hang around. If I don't hear from anyone, I will leave after those that posted are done trying stuff on.

We need to send this stuff back to Voler, so if you would like to try stuff on before ordering, please contact me. I'm planing on sending it back at the end of the week, or first thing next week.

I'll have a table, near the bathrooms.
