We order our Velo Orange jerseys from Chad at Portland Cyclewear and I often wear them. I know they are not as nice as some, but they are well made and comfortable, all in all a very serviceable everyday jersey. Once you pay for flocking setup and shipping you can figure around $45-$50 per jersey.

If you guys want them and pick the font and color I'll could place the order and charge you my cost. But Dale might want to do that and get some extras to sell at Cirque.

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? :)

Thanks Dale
