All arrows are pointing me to getting an affordable and well tested Velotec or a used Bodypaint 3.3

Neither come new with a number pouch. Really surprises me.

Outside of the mail-in service for Nopinz, anyone have success with a DIY mod?

Seems silly that it's 2019 and we have super expensive frames and wheels with all this testing............and a humble integrated number sleeve is a hard to find item. Should be the norm.
I have a NoPinz. It seems really fast, but I'm always worried about getting called out on the placement of the number. It's centered on the back, but most races want it to be on one side or the other. I usually just turn it facing the correct side, because I don't want to place pins in this nice speedsuit, but I feel like one of these days I'll be penalized for it.
