    If you are racing unattached...

    which kit would you pick?

    I'm pretty sure I'm going it alone next year but I'm not into the plain, old jersey thing. I don't care if I drop out of every race as long as I do it lookin' good. That's really all that matters.

    I've narrowed it down to these four. What do you guys think? I'll get matching shorts of course.

    DINGDINGDING—Poll's over. I decided on one. Check it.

    I like the top 2. The top right is something out of the ordinary for a race kit.

    Where exactly do you get them at, or did you make them?

    Huh. I thought I had an original idea when I thought of this about a week or two ago.

    Personally I don't like the upper right. I guess my preference is bottom left.
    Reacting is mind candy; it requires no thought. Thinking is tedious.

    bottom left

    But if you have a LBS you support you can wear that. My LBS dosen't have a team but they provide such great support I would be happy to fly their logo.

    Dude, what a hoot! Personally, I voted for the wrap...but.........if I was going to do one, I'd do a plain white jersey with plain black print, kind of like those old generic containers they used to have in the grocery store.

    It's my favorite of the bunch. Close second is Stripes, although looking at it now the black U is a little too prominent. The bottom 2 are kinda generic as far as patterns go.

    Just made them. Had some time before dinner, waiting at the coffeeshop without a book, so I downloaded the Pactimo template.

    'zactly. And that's what these jerseys are doing, right? Now, if you're gonna say FU, you can't say it small, you can't say it subtle. You gotta say it big.

    Wrap, no questions.

    That's itI'm going with Wrap.

    If you think about it, the other jerseys look like any other team kit. The Wrap concept is plain enough to be appropriate for the unattached rider, but still visibly bold and legible from a distance.

    I'm going to work on bibs, but you should be able wear it with plain black shorts the way the top is designed.

    I also registered a site. I was chatting with an ex-teammate this morning and we decided we're going to give this some web presence and see if we can collect pre-orders. It would be neat to see riders wearing this all over the country.

    Umm... wouldn't that make you guys a club? Kinda defeats the purpose of your unattachedness, namsayn?
