    Tinkoff kit / bike

    Not so impressed by their signings, but I must admit the kit is very sharp, and the bike sublime:

    Is it just me or does Commesso not look very intimidating, at all for a pro? Looks more of the lounge lizzard type...

    5'4 160ish...

    I don't know, he kinda looks like he'll get off his bike and kick your ass if you don't laugh at one of his jokes. You know, sorta Joe Pesci in Goodfellas type of intimidating.

    Yes, Commesso looks a bit like cycling's equivalent of the bat-boy.

    5'4", 160 means he's bringing some heat for his height.

    Well, he's a two time Italian national champion ('99 and '02) and won two TdF stages ('99 and '00)...

    So, yeah, he's pretty good.

    Primarliy Saeco and Lampre...he's the guy in the break who always has his jersey sleeves rollled up while working on his tan...

    I had no idea Martin Short was a professional cyclist. BTW, he looks less like a doper when he's smiling:

    Correct!! Commeso's a bad ass, and he likes to party as well. He got popped for Cocaine one year.

    e-man, thought you might have cloned yourself down on Beach Rd on Saturday....I saw at least 6 World Champ jerseys out on the road. Could have started a team

    None on a Giant with bling wheels though.

    Good plan. But first post a poll question on here asking if you should do it or not, and also if you should wear bib knicks over the top

    I'm all for the bibs over the jersey. Best when combined with no seat bag and no bulges in the pocket betraying tubes, fred stains, improperly seated helmet, and nubs of shame on the tires

    I agree, I think the kit is bad to the bone. I'm not gonna buy it, but I dig the yellow/black/silver.

    +1 on Comesso looking fat. Looks like all his training has consisted of laps around the McDonalds drive through window. He'll retire at the end of the year imo.

    Good idea to get all those drug takers in the one team, makes it so much easier for the testers.

    Anderson use to bang on and on about how he could do nearly 10 000km over the Xmas break and front up for Tour of Majorca or whatever and be passed uphill by fat, pasty, pale Italians.

    Enough gear in their system to knock out a horse.

    It reminds of the old Once kit and I liked that one also.
