Fairwheel Sanremo Speedsuit

Postby Ypsylon » Tue Feb 21, 2012 1:04 am

I've been bugging Jason every single day about making a Fairwheel Sanremo Speedsuit for the last two months, but for some reason he seems to think that there's not gonna be that many people who want a kit with a MSRP of $350.

I still want one. The thought of having no bib straps cutting into your shoulders and not having the stuff in your pockets swing around if you climb out of the saddle with your jersey unzipped and still being able to take a leak is just too tempting to just give up now.

You lose the weight of the straps, so it's lighter, it's more aero (free speed, Jeff!), heck, considering the body paint bib and the aero race jersey that compose the Sanremo suit cost $250 and $160 respectively, it's even a good deal. You'll need a bib and jersey anyways. And going by those prices there appears to be at least a little room for a discount.

For those that don't know it, this is what it looks like:

Review here

The only real problem is that I didn't make it into Team Garmin and so won't wear their kit and the regular Sanremo suit just looks awful.

I suppose having a size L bib and size M jersey wouldn't be completely out of the question either.

Those that would at least consider thinking about wearing a very fine piece of kit while riding their bike, please let me know here, so that I can convince Jason to at least look into pricing and stuff. The minimum order isn't all that high either, so it's not like this would be impossible.

I would get one if he had them made
Have you ever wondered if there was more to life, other than being really, really, ridiculously good looking?
