Win a Sabbath Exposure Joystick light + a set of the kit you've designed...

Ever seen some cycling kit and thought, "I could do better than that"? Well, now's your chance to have a go, courtesy of Sabbath Bicycles and Shutt VR. They're getting together to produce some suitably flash kit to match Sabbath's luscious titanium bikes and they'd like road.cc users to design it.

To get your creative juices flowing we'll be running a competition to find the right design – the winner will get a set of their kit and a Sabbath branded USE Joystick light plus of course the mighty satisfaction of seeing their creativity made flesh, well Merino Perform.

Entries are open now and the best five will go to a public poll in three weeks time so get your skates on! The jersey needs to have the Sabbath logo as the main one, with the Shutt VR logo on the chest. You can submit your entries in any form you like, what matters most is the power of your design. We've attached a blank template to the bottom of this story; those that want to go down the electronic route can import it in to programs like Photoshop or Illustrator, or you can keep it real and print them out and draw on them – either works for us. Or you can just go for the completely freehand approach.

Ideally we'd like you to attach a pic of your design to the bottom of this story, in true road.cc fashion, but you can also email them to info@road.cc or post them to road.cc, The Bath Brewery, Toll Bridge Rd, Bath, BA1 7DE.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

Not carbon atom..titanium, it was to match the Titanium bike! You can't read the writing but it says "rest on the SABBATH....Yeah right!!" I don'y have the computer ability to use anything but Paint but you get the idea.

here's one from DaveP... he say:

"Grey and Black to compliment the Ti and Carbon of the bikes, with an architectural print to enhance the solidity. White trim to breakup the monotony ... ShuttVR logos to be the only colour (middle pocket to have the Shutt VR colour bar)"

Are there no limitations on design/colours. Some of the current offerings are lovely but I'm not sure Shutt would be able to produce them in sportwool.

Here's one which uses the Shutt palett, combined with a heavy influence of Loughborough University's purple in recognition of the frame designer's background. Also influenced by the classic Mondrian inspired La Vie Claire jersey.

Good style. Bright enought to be seen, funky enough to be of interest and understaeted enough to be worn by on an old buffer like me. Posh

I can't draw and don't have time to, apologies, but perhaps for those that can how about a "Black Sabbath" theme white on 'titanium' ...

Had a little go at this one. The colors and simplicity are always fun to work with.
