1. Why we decided to only offer a triathlon kit?
Offering a bike jersey, bib shorts, and/or running shirt and not meeting minimums (14 per style) could impact our budget greatly. If we don't meet the minimums, we (TriWisconsin) have to buy up the rest of each style. This could be thousands of dollars and could take away money that we could use to support rides, clinics, workouts, etc.
If enough interest is generated we could offer other options on our second order.
2. Why are these so expensive?
Actually these are less than a regular kit from Wattie Ink. We wanted to find a kit manufacturer that was local or at least 100% made in the US. Also, we wanted to offer a quality kit over a low quality/inexpensive one. Comparing to other high end kits out there we have a very competitive price for our custom kits.
When choosing a company there are a lot of factors to consider: quality and fit of the product, ease of distribution (do they deliver to one address or to multiple), do they have a team store or do we have to collect money from everyone, how many design revisions can we make, how many times can we open the store, what are the minimum quantities, etc.
After several weeks of research and contacting many companies we decided to go with Wattie Ink. They did not disappoint with the design and we hope that everyone that places an order enjoys their kits.
Once again we thank you for you support and we always welcome feedback and/or any comments.
