wow - some nice pins there - though my own aesthetically-backwards
sensibilities prefer the more "retro" examples to the more "modern"...
of course, most of those still have my distaste for stylized cyclists
to contend with :) though as long as we dont use that blasted 1970s
stick figure cyclist that rusa uses (its my mortal enemy :) ), ill
im a sucker for rando pins from the 1950s or thereabouts - and design
issues are part of the reason i havent bothered ordering acp/rusa
pins since the ones i got in 2003, simply because i found them clunky
and unattractive... i have an allergy to non-computer-related things
that blatantly reek of being designed on computers :)
but im a picky bastard :) id be thrilled to death if we could manage
something as cool as the raid pyreneen logo:
but im all for a local pin series, regardless of whether or not it
complies with my own design aesthetics :)
