Maybe you've already seen these, but they're cool!

I'm really confused now.

I thought to strut your CSC/Astana/Quick Step kit was hitting it up 'OCP' style. No questions asked.

Now I have to make a decision (on the ride) whether that 'Poseur' kit is OCP enough? Maybe too....over the top obvious?

The CSC OCP kit denotes (to me) that the wearer is certain that 99% of the general public have no idea what 'CSC' refers to and, therefore, the wearer scores points for going directly to the road bike cult to show their total disregard for 'coolness' and lashes out with their shiny best kit.

Depends on what message you want to convey. It's still $69 though,

The message I like to convey is "This is the cheapest, ugliest jersey I could find on eBay."

Like this for instance -

I'd buy that jersey in an instant! Solid-color jerseys offend my delicate aesthetic sensitivities. That jersey has pizazz and savoir-faire.

..and how would you feel if (thanks to the wonders of the internet) you found out one of the jersey's you own was considered for the title of Ugliest Jersey Ever Made??

I still don't think that looks like a fart...
