A couple of days ago I asked a heavy metal band to sponsor me for next season, and surprisingly, they agreed. They are going to make patches for my jersey, but I am wondering if I can even put a patch on lycra. Any ideas? I am going to ask if they can do iron or sew on, depending on what works. Anyone know somebody who has added a patch to their jersey? Or know where I can go to get an answer to my question?
Thanks in advance.

BTW-if you like heavy music the band is Black Pyramid from Mass.

My secret training weapon....

SWEET!!

stoner/doom metal

is their first record. I think I rely on it more than any other training product. I was doing some big ring hill repeats the other night, listening to the album on my IPOD, and had the crazy idea to ask them for a sponsorship. I don't know of anyone else sponsored by a band, much less a doom band. They are great guys and instantly agreed. :thumbsup:
Great video, btw.

i normally don't listen to music while riding it's good to just enjoy the ride and your thoughts.

however when doing short intense intervals i do have some hardcore/groove metal/metalcore and hardstyle techno on the i-pod.

as far as the jersey goes why not get a copy of their logo and make your own custom jersey i think voler has a blank jersey that they can put your design on.

but my main sponsor is an LBS, so I need to add something to their jersey. The only thing I could come up with is a band patch, which they are willing to do for me.

Got my answer

In case anyone else is looking to be sponsored by a heavy metal or punk rock band, sew on patches are the way to go. There are adhesive patches, but they are much more temporary. Iron on patches would burn the lycra.

Stickers work too.

I know that is what UCI trade teams put on national team kits.
Wash jersey and reapply next sticker. :thumbsup:

back in the 80's when back patches were in style, many simply pinned them on each corner.
