I could use your input on color selection of kits & helmet(s)

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

I could use your input on color selection of kits & helmet(s)

I kind of have that issue- red/black/white general color scheme,

but some green creeping in. Fortunately, I don't really care.
I just can't bring myself to do Pink.

I like the old Telekom/T-Mobile team jerseys.

Yes. I'm still laughing that the OP even started this thread.

I'm not a fan of the word "kit" to describe what a person wears biking.

What's wrong with saying bike shorts and jersey?

Too "spendy," but love that! God knows I've earned the right to wear it.

Just bought a Kask Protone in white. Accessorizing is not my strong suit, but it's a nice helmet. Stays cool in the not sun, too.

As far as bib shorts go, well, black goes with anything, including all my jerseys, most of which seem to come from charity rides.
