Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

+1 on both Voler and Pactimo. Voler has some nice designs and I like a few from Pactimo's 'artist collection' (or something like that).

It wouldn't bother me, but I can see how it would bother some.

Ten Speed Hero always seems to have some smart designs, but I've always just worn the cheap (closeout) stuff from whatever LBS I'm working in/friendly with. If summer ever returns I'll need at least one more kit to replace the one I wrecked at the end of last season, and I'm really considering some of the boutique companies mentioned here.

right now I'm really into the Aussie based and produced brand MAAP, they make such cool looking kits, I only own one kit from them but I'll likely get another jersey soon...

Also I like San Fran based brand Cadence, that's made by Dustin Klein; an ex-messenger, again, they're kits just look friggin' good...

Another really cool Indie outfit is Oli Pepper and Dave Marcar's Morvelo, mainly because it looks and sounds Italian and that's just always great with me... .

Lastly I'll throw out this brand called CREAMseoul that I really dig, it's run by this Korean Graphic designer/cyclist and he really makes some dope looking kit...

I am a bigger roadie, so I tend to go for the stuff that looks really good to overcompensate, lol.. I can admit that, but I also like supporting cool, small businesses and boutique brands.

I prefer the more urban/casual/tech cycling clothing. You just can't make a jersey/shorts fashionable.

size down for race fit. the materials have a beautiful hand. and the bib shorts are a superb value. i loved my race gear and still have some great pieces that i continue to use. but i didn't have to pay for those. if i'm paying, no prominent logos, great fit, feel, and wear.

This.
Maybe it offended someone who felt they could not look similar while wearing it?
Who knows...

I agree completely , but unfortunately, we live in the United States of the Offended. I really feel like an open forum is not place for the easily offended.

Based on this thread I ordered a kit from them. Got the 2.0 bibs and the Floral Jersey. They are both quite excellent. The jersey in particular, is absolutely superb. Great design, the feel of the fabric is just beautiful, fits like a glove. Their customer service was outstanding as well. Highly recommended.

Cool. How's the fit? That's one thing that's put me off from ordering anything. With race fit stuff sometimes I fall between M and L with neither being ideal. Did you order your normal size?

I initially ordered small for both. The bibs fit great. They are the length I like, as in don't go all the way to your knee but not too short either and have those thick leg grippers that I find much more comfortable than the thin silicon ones. The jersey was ok except that it was a bit too long so it would bunch up a bit in the belly area when fully tucked. I should've known better and ordered XS since the beginning.

If you're between sizes I think for the bibs it would probably best to go for L, unless you like them tight. The floral jersey I would probably go medium. The fabric is so soft and stretchy that I think the smaller size would hug the body nicely (which is what you want from that type of jersey I guess) without being constrictive. They're really nice guys too and I am sure if after a few uses you wanted to change size they would let you do so.

LOVE Twin Six's stuff. I am not into looking trendy on my bike, I am just tired of the same 'ol from Pearl Izumi, Castelli etc etc..... Different designs that fit well. No size guessing like Assos or Castelli.

A sure sign that I've been desensitized to the costs of gear: "Hmmm, only $120 for the vest - not bad...."
