    I would love to have a CyclingDepartment tricot for the 2018 season. Shall we do a little brainstorming with Photoshop mockups to have something designed?

    Maybe run it in conjunction with our big brother www.racedepartment.com where all the skinning guru's can help?

    That'd be great! Unfortunately I'm no good with Photoshop or drawing creativity in general, but I'd certainly buy one once made! :)

    Great idea! I'm a designer by trade so might be able to help (although never done clothing before). Lets try and get some ideas in the ring. For printing It'll probably need to be in print ready vector format (AI, EPS, SVG or COREL) but i can definitely redraw any PSD/Paint or whatever mockups into final artwork.

    Simple and striking is key. Super complex pixel based raster images in a gazillion colours don't translate well to vector. There's a reason most cycle jerseys are just a couple of base colours with basic text and logos :)

    Maybe point out some current kit you guys like. I guess the black white, grey and turquoise of the forum is a good place to start with colour choice.

    Bram, do you have any Cycling Dept logos or artwork?

    Haha we will be getting RD merchandise in the coming months already. Actually a really cool line of clothing if everything works out. CD however should have it's own identity I think. Really like the colorscheme as laid out by @dazzyb2k3. Didn't realize that those colors of the site may actually look really awesome as a bib (black) with a jersey in those colors. Nice!

    Is there a psd template of cycling clothes that we can use to fool around with :) ?

    I like the last one, that looks good. Perhaps changing the text to a slightly smaller size? Just thinking out loud, I dont have the skill to do it myself :)
    Keeps the designs coming!

    Yeah, the color scheme works really well. I like the second one too. I might work on it some more. :)

    I like both very much. The colors look amazing on it. Black shorts?

    Maybe some small logo or color accent/trim but the main color HAS to be black. There's really no other socially acceptable color for cycling shorts is there?
