Looks much better than I expected. Still you can't have the greatest jersey designs when you have to work with the RadioShack logo.

Looks good, but I was kind of expecting it to read "The Shack" instead of "Radio Shack." Or has that marketing bit been deleted?

Suprised at the color scheme - thought it was going to be red and white. But looks good. Where's the SRAM logo though? Nissan is there because of Chris Carmichael I reckon.

I don't think it looks that good. It doesn't look bad, but it is very lackluster. From the internet:

Experts at Nike and their partners at RadioShack helped to create what the team describes as a fast form-fitting design that uses various textures and patterns symbolizing the themes of new technology, global connectivity and community.

The consensus from the team is: "We think it looks pretty damn cool."

What a joke. It looks like it was designed by a sponsership committee rather than an artist.

I know our own jersey design was meant for a joke, but it has a little bit of creativity at least.

What happened to the Michelob sponsorship? I expected them to have to stick a bikini babe or bottle on there somewhere.

At first I didn't mind it, but it is pretty bad.

In a way the design does reflect Armstrong's personality. No nonsense and gets the job done, but lacking in style and personality.

Meh, its not the worst design. I know its Radio Shacks color (red),
but the colors lessens the aesthetics. I remember NetZero using
red and gray in their team kits; they did a lil better job with them.

It stood out during the live coverage of the TDU preliminary race today, so it does its job

Red, grey, and yellow and Lance wears an almost matching livestrong helmet. I say, why not throw in few browns or mauves too. Who says you can't wear autumn colours all summer?

Compared to the mish-mash of colors and designs that most team jerseys consist of, it looks good. Granted, nowhere near as nice as the Francaise Des Jeux, which I've always considered the most attractive design in the peloton, but quite nice. I wouldn't mind getting one.
