G'day all,

Since making the hats for the RAW prize I have had a high level of interest from those who did not race. I've had a think & it won't take much to get another batch done. Turn around is 6 weeks & that's exactly what they took last round.

I've decided that since the majority of interest is through the Saturday slowies that instead of saying 'RAw track champions' on the side it will say 'Saturday Slowies' & I plan to put less stripes on it. They will be avilable to anyone in the club though. Cost will be $20.

But it will need to go to my chief designer to see what he comes up with. This thread is not a pre order thread nor a guarentee that you will get one just to measure level of interest so I know how many to get.

Cheers Simon.

If you are after opinions, then I would have to agree with Jo on this. I wouldn't wear a Saturday Slowie hat, but maybe that's because I am sensitive about being slow...

The hat design team has heard the ladies and so in order to keep people happy, the words have been changed. Hats will now say "Sunday Slowies". :wink:

Seriously though. Hats are good. A generic version with DHBC written on it is all you need. I like the idea of not actually saying what DHBC means. If you know you know and don't need to ask.

I think that I'd buy one if it had saturday slowies on it or not. I am a saturday slowie, so I have no fear of having it written a hat.

Well, ours may say "Saturday Slowies" Trouty, but they won't have so many skid marks!

Can I order a hat with Saturday Slowies, Waterfall ride, Time Trials, Adventure rides, Kilt rides, Budgie smuggler rides, Road Races, and Heffron Park Crit races written all over it? They all are pretty special to me! :)

Hat me.
Just keep the DH in a circle offa the thing. that's an invitation to ridicule.
I think it is a nice way to extend the brand by giving us an "off-the-bike" uniform item that is still a piece of distinctive cycling apparel in a way that a t-shirt just is not.
If it becomes our cafe hat, or our "wear around between races" hat or our "throw in the air excitedly when clubmates win stuff" hat, that's good enough for me!

I'd probably prefer a generic DHBC hat. But just so long as I can still turn the brim up and look like a Benny Hill-style halfwit, I'll be happy.

I love the idea of having a 'Saturday Slowies' hat. Not only would I be proud to wear one, but a significant number of our members ride Saturdays only. They're just as committed as the rest of us and an important element of DHBC. I'd like to honour what is actually quite a unique facet of our club. If it weren't for Saturday Slowies there's no way I'd be doing the sort of riding I do now, or have had the opportunity to make the friends I did who encouraged and helped me to do so. I can't be alone in saying that.

And we're talking 25 hats people! We could no doubt get a set of generic ones too and sell the lot.

As a folliclely challenged Sunday Waterfall rider I'd be very keen on purchasing a DBHC hat to protect the pate whilst having a post ride coffee. I like the sentiment of recognising Saturday slowies even though I've never had the pleasure of joining this ride due to other Saturday commitments.

I'd love a hat, but maybe not with saturday slowies on it because I've only done that ride once before. Perhaps if that part was obscured by helmet it wouldn't be a big deal. Gloves with DHBC on the knuckles would be sweet too.

I reckon a pair of white stripes down the middle would look cool.

Stripes are ok, just not so many (how many are there exactly? I haven't got one to count) :(

I would prefer ummm ... three stripes ?, not two. Two is twee... 8) But maybe another set would be ok.

Have you got a picture of the RAW cap, to have a look?

I liked the logo on the side too, rather than on the peak. I thought the other design was really good, just with less stripes and Saturday Slowies instead of RAW Champions...

Ooops, sorry. You did say don't post it in the thread... Mea Culpa. Delete me Stewie...

Primo hat idea. Now that you mention it the DH in a circle thing is pretty funny, especially when worn in an aerial position! I'd wear it for laughs. But yeah any hat, slow or not, would be cool.

If you have a DH in a circle, it should be on the top facing up, for those aerial shots...

I'm not sure where we're at with this, and if I'm too late to have my 2 cents worth. I love the design you put up Chidgey. The 3 stipes are really fetching, especially with the thicker one in the middle. Only suggestion I'd have is for the sides; "Saturday Slowies" I'm all for, but I reckon the other side should simply say "Dulwich Hill Bicycle Club". Maybe a "2010" somewhere to give it a bit of historical cache too.

I reckon DHBC on both sides of the rim, slowies on the side
