Help us choose our Eurobike uniform!

Pick a t-shirt design for our German excursion

by Dave Atkinson   August 17, 2009  

As part of our continuing quest to bring you the best news in road cycling we will, of course, be off to Friedrichshafen for the biggest and best of all the bike shows: Eurobike. Unless you've been it's hard to imagine the scale of this giant show, 13 halls (one of them a Zeppelin hanger, for goodness' sake) filled with inestimable numbers of bikes, bits, schwag and trinkets.

In such a big show it's easy to get lost in the crowd so we're going to make up some nice road.cc tees for the occasion. Have a click through the three designs at the top of the page and tell us which one you like best. No prizes or anything, we just value your opinion...

If you don't like any of them, simply make your own in Microsoft Paint (or at Cafe Press) and post it in a comment, and we'll add that to the mix too!

I'll vote for the middle one. But you need to use that iron on Scotch-light reflective stuff for the Road.CC bit... Wink

All three are great designs; hard to choose!
I like the Argyle theme, because it ties in with the best unknown bike brand in the world.

If you need t-shirts, talk to Steve at Stop the Press ( http://www.stop-the-press.co.uk/ ) . They do great work at great prices. Not spamming - I'm a genuinely happy customer having had some custom designs made by him earlier this year. He's a bikie too!

We could do you a set Jimmy - we're going for the middle prob in a choice of dark chocolate brown or charcoal, Caps? Plaid naturally - we haven't tried our hand at them yet, might be worth a go.

ooh middle one definitely; first too subtle and third one the pattern doesn't really work..how about a contrasting set of paisley R.CC underpants (just like I had when I was seven)?

Gotta be the middle one - the big bold Argyle print.

Definitely the most striking and clearest branding.

Middle is way better. Obvious, stylish and attractive.

When I first saw these, I liked them all but favoured the middle one - reading the comments it looks like I'm with the consensus.

The world map one is a great concept but difficult to execute - the three Argyle diamonds are perfect though (and best in charcoal, I think)

I'd also vote for the middle one - but the powder pink would be a bold choice, and distinctive. It takes confidence to wear pink. Wink

the three plaid diamonds design is the obvious winner, and if you wanted to be bold, a pink pattern on a brown tee is a nice mix

and while we're at it can i have a pink road.cc cycling jersey to match my bike?

I think they all have their merits but to keep it simple the middle one (2 diamond) is the most effective.

I like all three, but if you put a gun to my head I'd go for the diamonds/argyle one. If you do offer them for sale please, please, please offer a range of T-shirt colours... black just doesn't suit my colouring dahling!!

Don't worry silvercyclist we will definitely offer them in a range of colours - the first batch we're going to have made up will be in dark chocolate brown and charcoal, what sort of colour would you like?

As others have said the middle would be the choice. Fits in with your branding.

I'd have a tee. Black with pink logo? Match the bike - well one of them...

heh, pink. maybe next time... Like tony said we're going to do charcoal and dark chocolate tees first, just a small batch primarily to wear at eurobike but there'll probably be a few left over that we'll put up for sale, super exclusive like. the brown ones will have fluorescent cyan (!) diamonds and a white logo, the chocolate ones just the logo in a reflective silver print. both are going to look ace!

Are they going to have anything on the reverse? A small diamond in the centre, just under the collar? Maybe 'pedal powered'?
