I wouldn't care. I have a few team jerseys...

Personally, I wouldn't wear an RR jersey though. The team is basically collective of dopers who got dropped from other teams after getting caught.

Why even think about it? Buy what you want and wear what you want. Half the time, I ride by other riders so fast, I have no idea what they were wearing anyways... It is just a blur...

The only place it would be inappropriate is in certain group rides, depending on the culture of the group, and in a race. USAC has rules for that, lol.

Other than that, if you want it, go for it. I'm not much on current team kits for myself, but I would love to have some older kits from long defunct teams. I do admit if I were Diabetic I would so be rocking a Team Type 1 kit.

Many roadies have strong feelings on the subject of recreational riders wearing pro team kit. I had a friend say he'd stop riding with me when I mentioned buying a Discovery team jersey. He thought it was in poor taste for a recreational rider and doubly so for an out of shape guy.

Were his bibs in a bunch? Maybe he grabbed the wrong tube when he was putting on his chamois cream?

You should only care if you:
a) care what other people think, or
b) care about the image you project.
