The 2012 Pirate Kit Order Thread



  • I cycled past the show twice today. Can I assume by the lack of police that you didn't go?
  • We went it wasn't very good apart from the bike porn - pics later!!

    I've never seen the point of electronic shifting, until today, I NEED to become a great triathlete so I can justify having a flappy paddle gear box on my bike... It's sooooo cool!

    So other pirate thingys

    Some man suggested we get more bottles made by him, seems we used to have pirate bottles

    The elastic lace people would like to supply black and yellow woven laces (Xienex)


    Total awesomeness !! Pirate handlebar tape!! Only on a bike in black and white but was cool, wonder if they'd do black and yellow?
  • andthey say women are bad for shopping!!

    We have pirate water bottles, I have lots  imageimage
  • i gotta do better huh.....alright let's try again!

    are you guys putting in an order with LG anytime soon? i would like to get (2) tri shorts in large, and (2) tri tops in 2x-large. the shorts can be whatever style fills the order first. the tops can also be whatever fills the order first (except for the racer tank), however i would prefer the Delfino Semi-Relaxed.
  • We kinda got that !!

    Who are you and what are you doing wanting to join our gang??

  • I am a lazy old fart who got inspired to get back in shape by an old high school buddy Scott "Egoman" Ragsdale. I watched what he accomplished during Naseba 7, and immediately got off the couch and started training again.

    He sent me one of his Naseba kits, but after reading about the PSOF, you guys seem like my kind of misfits and I would like to wear the Pirate kit with pride.

    I have severlal different distance tri's over the next few months with a 70.3 Iron in October. My ultimate goal is to do a full Iron nxt year, possibly even traveling and doing one with Scott.

    So, you guys got room for another misguided soul?
  • Gastank - there is an option for forum names on kit; it's called 'make your own arrangements ' image

    Also, if you feel that we need a pirate accessory, feel free to start a new thread and canvass opinion
  • Its all becoming clear Bryant   image

    We always have room we just like introductions and gossip  image
  • Lol Schmunks - got it... I will look for the bar tape from supplier

    Laces were cool but I think I like plain yellow better... image

    We missed u today image
  • Gastank - I'm a medium in everything. I never need to try anything on in shops - just pick up Medium. I can get away (just) with small or large in desperate circumstances, but ultimately I'm always a medium. The medium Monaco was too small for me! The large that the lovely Schmunkee has lent me is a much better fit.
  • LG have different fits for their kit. So a monaco is a competetive fit - i.e. the size you measure is the size you get. Whereas the cycle top is a relaxed fit, so the top is a couple of inches looser.

    My M monaco sometimes rides up. My M cycle top is baggy, and my L jacket fits over all my layers in the winter. With hind-sight I may have gone for a S cycle top and a M jacket.But you pays your money and makes your choice.

    My MoreMile M tri suit is tight on the thighs, but myL tri shorts are baggy. Ho hum.

  • Clearly you need to eat MORE pizza and SAMOSAS image
  • Thanks MA, yep in my competitive fit I'd be a large (at least!!)

    <<makes mental note to stopping eating crap food and lose some weight>>
  • Could anyone help me with ordering Pirate Kit ? ...Many Thanks
  • Well, first of all you need to tell us a little bit about yourself and your tri aspirations

    Then you need to tell us how you came across the Pirates and why you want to join

    Then you need to consider coming along to this to meet everyone

    And finally, you need to cross my palms with Thorntons before you get any kit image

  • I do find it a bit funny about the recent people who's fist post is:

    'can I have some kit please'.

    Perhaps a bit of an introduction would be nice, hi im xxx and ive been admiring Schmunkee from afar since xx/xx/xxxx.

    Its not that we're the Masons or exclusive but it wouldnt perhaps hurt to make more of an effort to say hello.  Surely if you want to be part of the pirates you want us to know who you are, get to know us?
  • *stuffs pockets full of viennese truffles and legs it*
  • In my eagerness to belong .....I can see I have been rude ! apologies.

    My first triathlon - sprint - will be at Blenheim this year.........two friends roped me in at last New Years Eve..........actually - it was my wife - who kept nagging me to join them - so for an easy life I said yes !!...I know she has my best interests at heart !

    I am not looking forward to the swim but won't let that stop me. I heard of the Pirates through word of mouth and via a book.........I was never considered to be the outstanding sportsman at school so I can't go in to something with too serious expectations - hence my attraction to a group of people who can have a laugh !!

    I want to finish Blenheim then do a triathlon local to where I live (Faringdon).......until I have completed something/few things - I wasn't after any kit.....I'd like to think that I had earned it.......but if I can get it with a box of thorntons then I'll take that option if necessary.

    Just turned 43 last week - have two boys, lovely wife - thats whats key to me ! I am also at the age where I am thinking about a "Tat" wouldn't mind achieving something stretching and then etching it on to my well honed body !!  

    Can't get on to the "this" link ?

  • Hiya Richard, nice to hear youre doing your first tri, youll get used to resistance being futile, it wont be long before someone tells you that you should do an Ironman.

    At least if the wife is partly to blame she'll have no excuse to moan if you decide you want a go-faster bike or something.

    Hang around and post on some of the threads, someone will likely be able to answer any questions you may have.

    I'll leave it to Schmunkee to negotiate her Thorntons fee image
  • another lamb to the slaughter ... Holgs has a lot to answer for   image
  • Perhaps Holgs has shares in Thornton's, hence his Pirate recruitment manual .......all makes sense now???

    Hi Schmunks image

  • Hi Raf image

    Richard - I'll deal with you later! image I have a date with a fizzy therapist so TTFN

  • Does the fizzy therapist have to supply thornton's too I wonder? A dash of pain and some thornton's on the side... Pleasure and pain at the same time

    Richard the link should work but it's for the MANDATORY initiation event - if it still doesn't work let us know and we'll try get it to you again

    ALSO you need to change your forum name

    Initial thoughts

  • Yes - agree - need to change profile name and pic.

    Just digestioning some of the helpful suggestions and will initiate

    This will sound poor I know - but 1st July - I am out of the country on hols....would like to look at what the link connects to but it doesn't work (might be due to security set up on my work pc)......any detail would help ?

    Is there anything else I could consider ?

    Many Thanks

  • Ok if you're out of the country then you can't help man the PIrate feed station at the annual PSOF 2012 Championships on the 1st July image

    Schmunks will decide your fate.... I reckon it will involve Thorntons and possibly volunteering for something else image
