Updated: New road.cc jersey design - have your say!

Tell us what you think, don't be shy...now we've added versions with your changes on too

by Dave Atkinson   January 28, 2010  

We've always said we wanted road.cc to be more like an online club than anything else. That means everyone getting involved, and the latest way to do that is to spout forth on the goodness or otherwise of our mockup of the new road.cc jersey. You have spoken and we have listened… sort of. So now we've added some new versions inspired by your suggestions. Vecchiojo's white piping gets an airing as does his favourite pantone pink and in a fashion mash-up fringe's retro look meets PK Ripper's white idea. We'll probably do some more later too, but for now tell us what you think of this lot.

Eagle-eyed members will recognise our crrent favourite  as a development of one of the potential Planet X-road.cc jerseys that we stuck on the site not so long ago. It didn't make it onto the back of the team, but it did get a lot of love, so we're thinking of making some for the season.Click on it for a closer look: there's still a bit of our favourite Argyle in there, of course.

Obviously you can't please all of the people all of the time but we'd like some feedback, so don't be backward in coming forward! And if you've got other designs that you think would work for a road.cc jersey, add them to you comments... ones you've found, ones you've loved or – even better – ones you've scrawled on the back of a fag packet and scanned in.

Your mum always told you that if you haven't got anything nice to say, it's better not to say anything. But hey, we're pretty tough skinned. So fire away*

*You don't have to say nasty things though. You can be nice too.

If you had launched it a few months ago maybe we could have signed Wiggins as he seemed to take so long to decide whether to wear a black/blue jersey or an Argyle one for 2010 - Roadcc would have given him the best of both worlds Smile

I like it by the way

I'd wear it. Although I prefer white to black, killer to wash out though.

Does lack that little spark that would compliment the Road.cc quality

Otherwise...good job.

That's based on the one of the designs I preferred Big Grin

I'd definitely wear that if you can make it big enough! Wink

So, next questions.

How soon?

How much?

Following Jo's suggestions, I would agree with his points.

The addition of another colour would also be really good - ideally one of the diamonds on front and back being pink. Off centre, of course.

Like the design, doesn't need any more embellishment. personally I'de prefer a magila rosa pink to the blue and please please make it out of sportwool.

Argyle is not my favourite but I very much agree with the "meh" comment above.

I needs some extra colour(s) - at present it looks a bit flat and, well, boring.

mmm...well i mulled this one over whilst i ate my sardines and greens and i prefer a more simplistic and less jazzy number myself, (i expect thats why Rapha seem to do so well). Anyhow keep the colour down to black plus one other (blue, red, green etc) and keep the diamond Argle strip but make it more 'classic' looking perhaps..like this!

what's with the argyle still? That's so rockshox 2003!

Personally I wouldn't wear one as despite it being in the same colours as my new bike the colour proportions are in my opinion a bit wrong.

Am very much a fan of understated styling and this one I think would look better with the bulk colour being white as opposed to blue, with the diamonds in blue and red - like the old england football kit. At the moment it all looks a bit "altura commuter" - not a good look!

Yorkshire, it just shows some continuity with the original road.cc jersey. I think that the arglye works.

not all carbon is the same.

I like Fringe's option, the Rapha-esque style appeals...

Fringe's suggestion in merino would definitely be something I'd buy (not convinced by sportwool though).
I like the main version and would buy it though I don't think its worthy of a merino build.
"too jazzy" - Smile love it!

4 for me... the pink ones are a bit too "Rapha Condor" for me.

I think if it was going to be pink we would need to go more pink. We are going to do something in merino too, but it's more likely to be long sleeved full zip and something you could wear on or off the bike.

kit 5, much as i like it, is too close to the RaphaCondorSharp team kit. not keen on the white on 7, would prefer a band of colour/black all the way round, but out of that new lot i really like 6.

i wonder if FUJI SERVETTO had these problems.."like the light brown skin poo-ish colour"

How about a charity band on the arm like radioshack my vote would be for Cancer Research UK. Nerd

I was thinking along the same lines as Chris Deacon, £1? to charity for each purchase say.

I would like to see a little pink on it in the argyll pattern perhaps. Quite like the Giro etc but a full on pink is too much. Ibex did a nice jersey with a narrow pink band but for the ladies only Sad

White can be difficult to clean - and can't imagine many of us being mistaken for the Sky boys if you go with black & blue though!

well, as it's all my suggestions in one jersey i have to go for 'kit6' Smile , it's different to all the "me too" solid-colour-with-a-band-across-the-middle jerseys out there and asymmetrical is very in this year darlings.

another colour, just for some very subtle detailing work would be nice though. a charity band would be a kind thought too

Like both Kit 6 and Kit 4 - the blue on Kit 4 is the best colour, but the design of Kit 6 just takes it I think...

Oh, and a charity band is a great idea too.

Looks bloody aweful.

If there are different colour options I would buy it but not in yucky blue and white!

Ok it's a cycle jersey but I find I order my stuff aboard as it looks so much better than the naff colours made over here.

How about a competition from the users?

I quite like the ones in the thumbnails with are blue on the left and pink on the right. But you can only click in between them... Embrace asymmetry!

Sorry guys didn't mean to sound harsh or mock you guys!

I find the design fine but light blue? how about using colours that are seen by drivers like red or yellow?

Ok I know not all colours are suited for everyone and I would still buy it as long as it is not Brown!


I will come up with a drawing you can mock/up soon! B)

What program will let me replace the colour blue with red or yellow?
