V-nnouncements: Summer V-Kit Order and The Apostle Worlds

by / / 16 posts

As I gaze across my living room and see the final packages of the Spring Order’s V-Kit ready for shipment, I’m reminded that the time has come to finalize the Summer V-Kit Order. We will close the order August 3, 2012 – assuming we reach our minimum order quantities set by Castelli – which will put the delivery of the Summer V-Kit order in the mid-September/early October timeframe. Please note that these dates are soft and we will be updating you as we get more information from Castelli in terms of exact date commitments, when the kit arrives at V-HQ, and when the last package has finally been shipped. We do our best, but please remember that this operation runs out of a basement, so we aren’t able to match Amazonian precision on these matters.

On another note, our partners who led the 2012 Keepers Tour: Cobbled Classics – Pavé Cycling Classics – have arranged for the apostle Johan Museeuw to join them on their weekend tour covering the World Championships Road Races in Limburg, the Netherlands. Sign up now for the promise of a great weekend you’ll never forget. And, with the race being in Limburg, you’re almost guaranteed a party: if a Belgian wins, the Dutch will instantly change alliance, if a German wins everyone will know who to throw stuff at, and if a Dutchman wins, you should take out a special insurance policy. That, and the Pavé boys are sure to bring loads of Malteni, which will aide in smoothing over all variances to my prediction.

VLVV.

  1. might be to soon to know but im waiting for the fall order to get the arm warmers. any idea when that might be?

     

  2. Its a guess this far out, but the Fall order will probably roll in around the holidays.

  3. oye! that’s a whole lotta Euro to ride in my backyard…but then again you get to the Lion of Flanders by your side up the Cauberg. Have you seen his reality show “pedaalrijders”?

  4. V-gilet sizing: same as jersey?

  5. @CanuckChuck

    It’s been recommended not to size up, as the folks at Castelli have ridden a horse a few times.  Something like that.  So yes, same size

  6. New “poster” here – I really enjoy the site and the articles and information that’s shared …and most importantly The Rules ! 

    Sorry if I’ve missed the news on this , but just curious as to when the next V-Kit order will be placed?

    Expecting early February; working out a few details at the moment that might impact that, but we’ll make an announcement as soon as we have something concrete. Cheers!

    Am I going to have to do the Keepers Tour in my PDM jersey?

    Hopefully not – the goal will be to have them made in time for KT attendees to have them in-hand. That said, if it looks like KT will happen in the PDM jersey, you might as well roll with the full doping suite too by way of following suit.

    Keepers Tour! You lucky beggar. I’d do it a kilt, wellies and a basque if it had the chance (and the release of cash from the clutches of the VMH). I think this may just be my retirement treat rather than the supported Perth to Uluru expedition. 2 years, 9 months and 26 days. Not that I’m counting.

  13. @JohnB you planning on riding a bike from Perth to Uluru starting at the beginning of Summer?!? Try swimming in the waterholes along the way too.

    Sod it – I wanted to see what some of these reprobates are like in the flesh. I may rock the kilt for PR – should get me seen in the crowd huh?

    As far as the VMH is concerned I’m on latrine duty sine die.

    I sold it in part as the run up to the London-Edinburgh in two days ride four weeks later (on which she’s DS and #1 Engine soigneur). As the intention is that this will raise funds for #1 Engine’s water polo club – as will the Coast to Coast in a day the following month the KT is clearly vital training – indeed a weighty responsibility.

    I’m afraid I don’t mix cycling and swimming.

    Since I spent time in Perth and spent some time with ROC Tours I always promised myself that one of their supported tours in April or September would be my retirement gift to myself. Now it seems they are based on the east coast so visiting friends in the west and then bike riding heaven is not so straightforward without more flying? The Keepers Tour is edging ahead just now. Who knows, maybe I can fit in both.

    Indeed.
