    This is always a problem when you make a product for a limited and very focused market, the masses scream, "I don't get it," or worse insult you and your work. Meanwhile your target audience is psyched.

    I think that their poo poo stinks more powerfully than other animal's too. The koala cage is always the smelliest at the zoo. At least they don't fling it at you like monkeys. Though, if I captured and caged, I'd fling my poop at people too. In fact, when I get angry...http://euphoriabeforetotalimplosion.blogspot.com/

    On cockroaches:
    yes, they are the mascot and one of the lead design pieces for Cambridge Bicycle Racing Team. More importantly, designed by Craig. In fact, all those items on the back are associated with Craig, on different levels.

    On getting/non-getting it and creepiness:
    I never have and never would watch any of the "Saw" movies. Not my thing, ya know. Yet, they have produced how many? is it 4? Maybe 5. The point is - there is a certain market for certain things. If you don't "get" it, it's perfectly fine! This only means that this product was not intended for you. And it is GREAT that some (a lot) don't get it. Otherwise it would have become a mass-production/mainstream crap which I would definitely not be congratulating myself on.

    Thanks for listening.

    I just didn't know the cockroach was the mascot. It's no big deal. It's not that I don't "get" the shirt. srs rolleyes here.

    I think people might think it's creepy cause it's someone that we know in real life is on a tshirt like Zac Efron. It's strange. That said, I've discussed the shirt with my friend mike and we plan to all get one and only wear them on the same day, preferably when hanging out with craig.

    Is there profit and does craig get any $?

    Craig gets product and fame. He allowed us to use his likeness as a favor to Natasha to promote her photography company (Pedal Power Photography).

    We will be giving some of these away at select events (Friday the 13th Race, amongst others). We are quite a long way from figuring out if we will recoup our initial investment, let alone make a profit. Not all that many printed in the first place. Rest assured, we are not ripping Craig off, we are good friends of his.

    Indeed, I would be freaked out if I were on a shirt. We were careful to discuss this with Craig over the course of a couple of months to make sure that he was on board. Craig approved of the design before we sent it to the printer's.http://euphoriabeforetotalimplosion.blogspot.com/

    Thanks for deciding on a shirt!

    This project is not a money-making project. It has not been started as a business model and nor it is. We do it for the fun of it and for our friends. All the people (there have only been 2 so far :) ) are asked for their consent to be placed on a tshirt. If they choose to say no, there is never a tshirt with their face and name on. Period.

    Right now our goal is to cover our cost (here's yet another side of non-massproduction - unpredictability and risks). It's not cheap. If we were a big company actually making money, Craig would have gotten his share before we even put the shirts in production. This project is absolutely artisan. Craig gets his share, not necessarily in $, simply because the coverage of costs is not even in sight.

    I hope this answers the question(s). Feel free to shoot more if you have them.

    craig is cooler than about 98% of the people on this board. he's one of the nicest guys you'll meet at any sort of cycling event (track, road, cross, alleycat, charity ride, etc). being that he's on the CB team, that RMM is on the CB team, and that pedalpowerphotography is on the CB team, everything that went into the making, producing, and selling of this shirt is kosher.
    and speaking of roaches, craig informed me today that he's currently working on designs for the new road kit.. be jealous everyone else in the peloton!

    Hopefully white won't be the base color, so you don't have to worry about lettin' loose a lil hershey squirt in that final sprint.But the fact of the matter is: Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. And the United States of America has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world!

    natasha - very nice. i'll be purchasing one as soon as i'm done wrangling over which color i should get. i like the variety, though. i'm sure picking all those different colors was completely against your goal of recouping costs, but they all look very awesome.

    and tristan, that's a terrible thought and nothing i ever concerned myself with while racing for cambridge. maybe your body just doesn't like you? all this vomiting and squirting in undesirable ways. that being said, the chamois has usually been gray, which is probably a good thing if there are others like you. as for myself, i am a champ at getting chain grease all over myself when geared up in my kit.

    at this point, i'd be a little surprised if they deviated from white/black. it's was a pretty recognizable symbol at the head of the pack over last year's road season. whatever they do, i look forward to whatever new design croth makes for the CB team to adorn themselves in.

    oh, and as far as the next run goes, i vote for the gary and his moustache as g.g.allin with "hate" written at the bottom idea as discussed at ice weasels. if he consents, of course.
  17.  
    yeah i've only thrown up and bled at races, nothing else. not too sure what you've been doing tristan. i love the black and white, even if white on the bottom has the potential to be a bit revealing (*cough* lauren has a leg tattoo *cough*). and it's indeed overtly obvious when there's a man in white in the break away, and for some reason the peloton, led by 5 other guys in white, is losing time.

    the cross kits croth did (ha! tongue twister) were nuts and it took me a while to figure out all the intricacies going on in it.

    ps...someone care to leak a pdf of the new back bay kit?

    no, the leg tattoo was always covered up by the black side panels. it's the hip tattoo that's very apparent through the far-too-opaque skinsuit.

    i loved watching the cambridge cat 4's play with the rest of the peloton. gary, you best catch up and get on that cat 3 action now that most of the guys upgraded. i'm sure cambridge will be even more fun to watch now. and it looks like there's a pretty solid ladies team now too, right? are they all cat 4's in road? plus natasha, you said there'd be a ladies mountain squad as well?

    and re: the back bay kit...no. sorry. let's just say that a) it looks amazing [kudos to dan st. g], b) we don't have any white which makes keeping a clean kit for mountain racing way easier [as well as me being a general grease-coated mess easier] and c) i'm glad that i'll be wearing a kit as awesome as the cambridge one i gave up. i'm going to miss being on the CB team.

    "You have this incredibly innovative machine but it looks very traditional." The last word delivered like a stab. Doug Field and Scott Waters would have felt the wound; they admired Apple's design sense. Dean's intuition not to bring Doug had been right. "There are design firms out there that could come up with things we've never thought of," Jobs continued, "things that would make you shit in your pants."

    Given that no CB member has ever marked his/her kit with digrace de couleur brun, I would close the "what if" discussion of possible faits that await white kits. If someone feels particularly compelled to be grossed out, I'm sure Internets provides for far more elaborate capro-collection than your bostonfixed.us/forum-public confession of uncontrollable defecation.

    Jealousy maybe then? We'll take it as a compliment ;)
