Kittens and Friends,
The kits are available for order again. It is open to the public via KitOrder.com. We decided to to a chance and make long sleeve jerseys and jackets available for those who want them. The order closes in May and will take about 8 weeks from there. Once the order is closed, it’s closed. We are not getting extras. Make sure you get in on this if you want something.
We are having a party at Loretta’s in South Park on Saturday, April 14th at 5pm for those of you who need to try on kits and/or like to drink. You should come.
I’m getting as many kit samples as I can, but there were lots of things that they didn’t have on hand right now (sadly, lots of the women’s stuff), but the men’s sizing is almost exact or very close across the board. This will be everyone’s first chance to try on the new jackets and long sleeve jerseys to see if you like them too.
If you are comfortable with the sizing and what you need, you can order here:

We wanted to give the hat order some time to settle before doing this. If you haven’t arranged a time to meet and get you hat from me yet, email me and We we’ll mail it out to you.
We are working with Hincapie again to get another round of kits ordered for you all. We know some of you have torn bibs or jerseys or skinsuits from all of the awesome. New stuff is on the way (as soon as we order it and you pay for it)!
We’ve also had some interest in long sleeve jerseys and warmup/wind jackets. We am honestly still gauging the interest on those pieces, but we are probably going to pull the trigger on some jackets at least.
It’s going to work just like last time. We will have a order up on kitorder.com so you can pre-order the pieces that you want. Once that deadline is hit, the money is sent off to Hincapie and they get things officially started. Their turn-around these days is around 8 weeks. This isn’t set in stone, of course, but is typically for this time of the year. Nobody will have anything in time for road or MTB season, but definitely in time for cyclocross season.
More info coming soon.

So you’ve been itching to wear a bicycling kit with pink, kittens and/or knives and you weren’t ever sure where to get one? Soft Like Kitten finally has some stuff for sale to the general public.
The clothing is made by Hincapie and is their highest quality stuff. I’ve been really impressed with my kit so far. We even had a chance to put it through the ringer on a 24 hour ride this last weekend.
The deadline for the orders are Sunday, June 19th. They should be back in time for the beginning of cyclocross season.
Spread the word.
Thanks for all of the support. You all are awesome. FACT.

The kits arrived even sooner than I expected. My lowly camera and weak house lighting isn’t doing the pink justice. They are gorgeous.
We are getting together to collect them on Sunday, May 1st at Loretta’s. We should be there around 5pm drinking and burgering and what not. I’ll bring all of the kits (all 50lbs of them, apparently) and we can run around the bar with spandex creeping the locals out more than usual. Chris, Dylan and I will just be making our way back up from Olympia after a 400+k fleche, so we should be cheap dates.
If you can’t make it or are just desperate to get your stuff early, I’m willing to meet up with the local folks as needed. Just shoot me an email and we can work something out. I’m getting together a skinsuit order very soon so we can have some in time for cyclocross season. They are going to take a little time since we are technically “changing the artwork” with a new sponsor on board. I don’t have a firm price yet, but expect it around $150. If I get enough interest, we can do a second order of normal kits (bib shorts + jerseys) for anyone that didn’t make the cut on the original order. We have to meet a minimum of 10 pieces per item though, so make your voices heard if that’s what you want.
