Hey Braden, since you're getting all this free marketing advice, maybe you ought to do us all a favor and design the next tarck kit?

Rattles around in metal bottle cages, but you could solve that with a fabric or twine wrap.

The Primus I posted has never dripped a drop. Also you kinda have to shove it into a bottle cage so no rattling.

Yes. Closure is controlled by a pretty big spring, and I imagine you could just re-stretch the spring if it ever gets a bit less tenacious.

I'd buy an Endpoint cap with that awsome logo
One of the Rainy Day reflective mudflaps with your logo: http://www.rainydaybiking.com/Bicycle-Mud-Flaps-s/1817.htm
Also like the topcap idea, so hard to find any cool designerbro topcaps, so many cornball ones it makes you cry a little.

Coffee themed water bottles is a great idea
Kind of want it to be Juan Valdez on a bike or in a helmet
I really love my coffee cup bell but its a piece of shit and would buy a better one

Saddle/bartape combo that matches
Buddy fender flaps is great
Gloves that work well, look good, and dont cost $100

The best type of fit advice is internet fit advice.

If Endpoint Water bottle, consider printing the Specialized Purist Hydroflo: http://specializedwaterbottles.com/hydroflo/
I'm a big fan of my Novara branded Hydroflo bottles.

So is the hydroflo like the camelbak bottles? I look pretty incompetent when I used a purist bottle after using the camelbaks for so long. Damn water just drips out.

Not at all.
The water doesn't come out unless you squeeze.
No need to worry about pushing the nipple back in.
They're head and shoulders better than the regular purist bottles.
Hands down the best I've ever used.

Yeah, better than normal purist waterbottle IMO. Not sure why they kept "purist" in the name, should've just called it Hydroflo period.
The only issue with Hydroflo is you really need to be mentally prepared for the water to hit the inside of your mouth, shoots very rapidly and dumps quite a bit of water in per squeeze. In that way it is a very personal preference.

If you like to sip water a little bit at a time to "save it" the Hydroflo might not be your bag.
If you like to empty 1/3 of the bottle in a simple squeeze, fill up your tummy, and be done with the thing for awhile it is the bees knees.

I don't know if we ever decided whether this stuff was good: http://www.torelli.com/tubes-tires-maintenance/torelli-cables-a-housing/torelli-cable-housing.html

but if it is, you could sell a-la-carte kits off the big shop spools

do the stock builds with housing runs in the colors of the olympic rings

Good to know. I actually am not a fan of that style, because inevitably when i get to the end of the bottle I end up with a mouth/lungful of mistwater.

Some really good ideas here.

I floated the idea for a Tarck kit to my bro that I work with on the kit stuff (I'm actually completely illustrator retarded and do all the creative mockups in photoshop and he then dials in the awesome). He's into it too. Got a lot on our plate but now that's on there too.

Couple of stipulations if we do this though. We would use a company that at least sews and sublimates in the U.S.

I guess there was some past beef with Castelli but that would probably be our go to company until Starlight is actually able to get their production state side.

Would also be a tarck x endpoint collaboration. Would sell through the endpoint webstore to eliminate hassle of the whole groupbuy thing but we password protect that item in the store to keep out the trolls, new guys, and other riffraff.

Unless anyone has any serious issues with either of these stipulations we'll put it in the idea hopper and when we have time or there is some divine inspiration from the almighty smiley we'll put it out there for approval.

The biggest beef with castelli was the color, but they seemed to have gotten that correct with their tarck-inspired kit someone posted in the off-topic forum.
I think Tarck could use the discipline of the endpoint store.

Tarckalope is also pretty great.

Rad ass backpack. Like the Rapha one but waterproof without the cover. Would be glad to send you the old version for reference.

Videos. The duck dynasty guys had a million people paying to watch them hunt BEFORE they had a show. Bike geeks will pay to watch rad endpoint adventures.

Metal/enamel camping mugs.

Another backpack. Somewhere around 2k capacity. Internal frame, or frame sheet. Comfortable on and off the bike. I have an adventure racing pack that's close but could be a little shorter.

A jersey/softshell type thingy like the Castelli Gabba.

A killer winter hat. Every forum has a thread every year so clearly nobody is really nailing a beanie.

I have an Oxo that is roughly the same design. Has a big disk underneath the lid that is spring operated. Seems really leakproof to me, only issue is if you take a swig and close it back up, you have to take a sip to clear the few drops that get trapped on the wrong side of the closure. A bit annoying but its consistent and no leaks if you "clear the chamber" after drinking from it.
