Thanks for that idea; I do understand your motivation here...
You know, I may alienate a few folks with this opinion (sorry) but I am not crazy about the look and (my perception) the quality of those "Portland" jerseys. I looked closely at them at Interbike and they are "OK", but gee whiz, I take the image of the CR sort of seriously, yada yada, and I just don't want to go there.... I do admit a personal prejudice of Italian over China although I know everything is changing, yada yada again!)
Is that so wroung? :)

If 30 people wanted a simple Portland Cyclewear jersey they'd only be, what, $55.
(I don't follow their pricing for flocked letters---they say $3.50---is that per letter? I don't know if flocking is cheaper or fancier than embroidery. If it's $3.50 for the whole name that makes it only $43.50 for 30 jersies.)
I suppose anyone could just order their own one-off for, what, $85.
I haven't sold enough bike books to afford a $125 jersey. Someday!
