    Alessio's uniforms look really ugly to me.
    I dig CSC's, and ONCE's colours.
    I would go more into this but my memory of team jerseys is a bit sketchy

    I'm afraid I have to agree with you, Laggard. Such an insult to us stylish Italians...

    BigMat, the French version of Lowe's or Home Depot


    I have a good friend that rides, his name is Matt. He is 6'4" and 252 lbs. I bought him a BigMat jersey, Its probably the goofiest looking one ive seen. For 2003 the jerseys have graphics that resemble a carpenter/shop keepers apron, or a pair of overalls. Its i riot.

    Another honerable mention....The Carrera Jeans team in the early 90's Had blue shorts with fake orange stitching to look like a pair of Jeans. even fake pockets!!! How Queer.

    Chiapucci's win in the 1992 TdF @ Sestries was awesome!

    I like ONCE's. Always look sharp. Cofidis doesnt have a have bad setup, not a big fan of the big phone number on the front(back?) of the jersey

    The ones that USPS wore on the final day of the TDF this year were pretty nice. I agree though that the Posties uniform needs some updating.

    What?! I love my Kelme and Euskatel jerseys! I love that they ARE so loud and obnoxious. That way you can see me fly past you!

    Agree with you on the Domina and Phonak though. Maybe the Phonak design will improve with a winning season on Tyler's back.

    I really like the US team's Navigator's jerseys, I think they are really sharp. If you're talking UCI pro teams then I would say:

    Best
    Quick Step
    Credit Agricole
    ONCE (the yellow ones for the TdF)
    Telekom

    Worst
    Relax-Fuenlebrada
    Phonak
    Bianchi

    I like ONCE in either Pink or Yellow. Bianchi was classy.

    I happen to like the Euskaltel scheme (I also like the looks of the Orbea that pays homage). . . and I agree, ONCE always looks good - pink or yellow.

    Favorite kits.
    Best:

    Bonjour.
    Cofidis
    Fakta
    Euskaltel/Euskadi


    Not Me:
    Mapei
    Big Mat
    Domina

    Kit should scream out. Euskaltel has gretest chance of being seen . Think Euskaltel and Domina has greatest chance of setting off the homophobes.

    Kit that I had to get for myself..
    Bonjour.. Like it a lot..Like the message.Had been a team booster..

    Kit that would give you the greatest honor to wear-like if you had actually won the right to wear it!
    World Champ with the five stripes...

    Never noticed a Eskaltel rider with a ***** strapped to his down tube... Sorry, orange is a color that I like..Orange is cool. Actually it is sort of hot, maybe that is why I like it.
    Sort of like red.. My car is red, my dive tanks are red. My wet suit has a red stipe in it, on a blue background. Own nothing orange,yet...
    I have enough cycling wear..If I needed anymore can imagine myself buying Eskaltel. But think anyway, their gear is not as comfortable as Pearl Izumi...
