    Ew. He looks like a wannabe Captain America.

    (And everyone knows that Dave Zabriskie is Captain America anyway)

    Captain America shown above is no less than George Hincapie.. Can't think of a pro cyclist more deserving of being Captain America than Hincapie.

    Captain America is less vain than Armstrong.. Or A do - Gooder sort of like Superman who does good for human kind and is totally selfless.
    ....Armstrong is more like Rambo. A do gooder, but not selfless. I'll stick with Hincapie as Captain America..
    ... Both fight for truth , justice , and the American way. Hincapie just a little more altruistic . ?

    Back on topic. Yes, Hincapie has a wonderful kit. His values, attitude and sportsmanship reflect a true American, and I can think of few others in the pro cycling arena deserving to wears those colors.

    Hincapie's kit is loud but tasteful. Captain America would be proud to wear.. That Chipolte kit posted above is definitely over the top.. Captain America would surely go color blind. Lance's obsession with profitability is not always a bad thing for all. He's put a good share of his winnings to charitable causes.. Lance is still closer to Captain America than say Dr Doom.
    .If Lance had been all that charitable, he'd done all in his power to share at least one TDF podium win with his old domestique buddy , Hincapie...
    .....When it's all said and done. Who will came out ahead. Lance or Hincapie.. Lance flits about from celebrity to bar maid.. George Hincapie comes home to respectable riches. but a super model , (supportive ?.) Podium Girl wife with a happy bouncing baby girl....Or at least that is his image. .

    I always wonder how in the heck the pros are able to keep white bibs (white anything but especially white bibs) relatively clean over the course of a four hour race. I can't keep black clean for an hour

    .^.. my club kit is a dark red.. On my own , i mostly wear black. But, on the days I wear red, seems the odds are I have a rear flat.. Chain grease and red just looks lousy.

    OK.

    The insulting has to stop. I'd prefer to just scream and yell in general rather than issue infractions but can go either way...

    (Edit: never mind referred to wrong forum)

    If you wish to argue about politics we have a forum and the internet is full of other opportunities as well.

    If you want to insult each other the Admins just started a forum called Trollheim which is just the right place for that. No moderation except spam killing.

    This (above comments) is not directed at everybody and if you're not one of the participants don't take it personally.

    I've always thought Captain America was pretty cool. I hear Marvel killed him off though.

    Hincapie should be Cappy. Needs to be an old guy.

    Really the clothes does not make the man.(cyclist.) Do Not really , care so much about the kit, -----should it not be too fuggly..
    .....But, really I am mostly a Hincapie fan........... Ever since his shows at Roubaix. .....Always wanted him to win the TDF. Had he been in it all for himself and trained a little harder, maybe he would have.. ....Instead of bowing to Lance as team leader... In the cyclist world, Hincapie will always be the Captain America for some...

    The regular BMC kit isn't too bad, either:

    I've never had the impression that Hincapie was a slacker; my impression has been just the opposite, actually.

    As far as being a contender for the TdF overall, I always thought that was putting a lot of unfair pressure on Hincapie. Sure, he had a mountain stage win after sitting on Pierrero's wheel extensively. However there's a huge difference between being a fantastic support rider vs being a leader and shouldering the burden of leadership for three weeks. (These comments are not aimed at cyclezealot personally, nor are they intended to disparage George.)

    Tis true. Hincapie's reputation is that of a one day event rider... . Just that Roubaix is such a rigorous one dayer.. Just felt he too readily accepted the role as a support rider. If Landis can ( for awhile ) be a TDF winner. I'd just hope for better luck for Hincapie.

    .^.. I am pleased that it is not a yellow stripe going down their backsides.....Sky's is ok. ......But, why that stripe.?.......
    ...White kit supposedly can be double lined: . reducing the chance of being embarrassed .?.. Still it shows dirt really fast.......
    ... My favorite would be BMC's kit.. ..That is super cool.

    Another vote for Sky. However, the blue stripe must be there because some artsy style guy wanted it.

    Still...they'll be easy to pick out of the peloton especially in those overhead shots.

    I'm still an Argyle lover. DZ and Hincapie are both deserving. LA is too but it is very true that he is worried about filling his wallet as much or more as doing his charity work. Hincapie looks bad ass in the new BMC kit btw. I was hoping more for the sky kit, seems kinda blah though. I think it's time Saxo Bank updated a bit too.
