I receieved an email alert from Nashbar three days ago offering the Phonak jerseys at the sale price so I hardly see this as a reaction from them.Since Phonak is changing names next season they probably got a boatload at a discount. I myself don't wear team jerseys.Black shorts and solid color jerseys for me and I have never payed more than 20 bucks, as I wait for sales and close outs!
thanx for the clarification ... and i also appreciate hearing about your buying and dressing habitsOriginally Posted by Skullo

Shouldn't the title be "Nashbar reaction to ugly jersey"?
Faster than a speeding moped!
More powerful than the Santa Ana winds!
Able to bunny-hop railroad tracks in a single bound!
....definately a reaction to the 'ugliest' team kit ever...& also to try & off load them on the back of Floyds 'win' before the team changes sponsorship/name......you'd reckon with all the money sponsors throw at pro tour teams they'd spend some on getting some advice on making a reasonably attractive kit, so at least they could recoup some money on royalties from sales. I don't recall seeing anyone who wasn't been paid to wear Phonak gear, wearing it.....I certainly wouldn't be paying for the privilege of wearing it!
Anyone want a BMC? It's going cheap.

I like the Phonak kit.
