Tabby, I’ll do my best. Are you going to be at FOC in a couple weeks? Which size did you want?


Tabby
Participant
#

yes, I’ll be there. I missed the first one cause I was OOT :( I could use a size small.

Just a thought.. besides the initial order, you could put the graphic on something like cafe press (I know its expensive, but.. ) then the FoC could be on everything from mugs to thong underwear. And who wouldnt want 80’s hipster thong underwear.

I would, but then I’d have to start wearing underwear.

@Joe – haha!

Really like the upgraded tee design!! :)

Not a fan of the diagonal racing stripe?


dwillen

#

Netviln, I’ll make the logo available to whoever wants to do that.

I was thinking it may be neat to stick on a flier and put it up in a few coffee shops, or hand it out to people who are interested. The girl that I buy my morning coffee from (a soon-to-be cyclist) keeps asking me about it and I wish I had something to hand out.

Joe, the stripe actually looks pretty cool, but I think the overall size of the thing would have to be reduced if we did that. The dimensions it is in right now fit well on a shirt, if I made it much wider it would have to be scaled down.

Verdict on the latest iteration: perfect.

@salty – Thanks for starting the font discussion. It encouraged me to explore the fonts available through Office 2007.

Amazing stuff@! Who knew there were fonts like chiller, chick, or freshbot. Now I have to find a reason to use them! And yes, I know there are people on this very board, and in the world at large, who know all about fonts. Me, I am an arial, calibri, times new roman kinda girl….or at least that’s the sort of office I work in.

Arial. Psshh. Helvetica is far superior.

I just talked to the printer. They will mix and match whatever colors you guys want:

http://store.americanapparel.net/2001.html (I think I can get most of those, probably not the online only ones though)

Stipulation being, the ink is black, so the shirt needs to be light enough that it will show up. Email () a few color choices before 5:30 today if you don’t like Sunshine. I’ll get as many different colors as I can.

I filled out the survey with medium. I hope I have one reserved!


dwillen
Participant
#

Joe, yes. I’ll have extra of the normal shirts. Like I said, the polyester wicking ones I am going to only print what people requested on the survey.

Dan, can I make my shirt “grass” (S)?


Swalfoort
Participant
#

I ordered a large AA on the survey. Can I get mine in turquoise? Awesome!


dwillen
Participant
#

Yea, Nick and Swalfoort, I’ll get those.

Nick, did you fill out the survey? are one of these tech-t ones for you?


Nick D
Participant
#

Yep, a small.


dwillen
Participant
#

I ordered all sorts of different colored shirts. If you didn’t reserve a color here or by email, it’ll be first come, first serve on FOC day.

Hey Dback,

Flock of Cycles is a friendly group ride the second to the last Friday of every month. We meet at Dippy (in Oakland, by the Library) at 6 pm and leave by 6:30. It is slower paced and the goal is to have fun and not piss off any other road users. Last month we had a couple of sound systems going and we rocked out to 80s music on a 22-mile ride around Pittsburgh. It is a great way to get to know a lot of the people on the board here, and there are plenty of opportunities to go on FOC-style rides with these same people throughout the month.

Here is a link: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=116796701686409&ref=ts

Hope to see you there on the 18th!

Dback, you should definitely try to make it out to FOC. Last month we had a post-ride party at my place, this month we are planning a post-ride picnic.

dwillen,

Looks like I’ll be out of town for next FOC (will it be on the 18th?) is there another way I could buy a shirt? Size medium AA, please :)


dwillen
Participant
#

Yea, I’ll post here when I get them in (sometime next week) and you guys can meet up with me somewhere if you want them before/after FOC time. I got plenty of extra medium in all sorts of colors.

Sounds great and I will make a serious attempt to make it to the ride. I will also let my biking friends who arent a part of this forum know about it.

I would prefer Algerian. It’s certainly used by everyone else in this city, it seems.

They turned out awesome. I got a little of every flavor. First come, first serve on the colors (if you contacted me previously I’ll save you what you asked for). This Friday, 6:00 pm at Dippy. Cotton ones are $10 each.

If you can’t make it this Friday, but still want a shirt, or you just can’t wait until Friday to get yours, send me email and we can figure something out.

Orange or purple! Small!!

Dang it! I can’t make it to the ride! Or only for abit!

Awesome job Dan!!!!


dwillen

You will probably have to settle for a purple one bikeygirl, those stacks are by size. The L/XL/XXL is the one in the middle. The small and medium are on either side. Not sure why I didn’t get any orange/dark blue in smaller sizes.

The far left pile is the polyester wicking ones. I got only enough of those for the people who filled out the survey asking for one.

If you can’t come Friday, I’ll be happy to meet you guys any day this week. The easiest for me is Schenley Plaza after work, at around 6-6:30pm.

I can’t wait!
