Who will be the first... Rock Racing Kits

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

the slipstream caps caught my eye, but Pearl Izumi's marketing department seems to be as crap as their sizing department (i.e. i can't find them for sale, and please, someone tell danielson that he should wear his bb cap down, nice and low, to cover his face).

Is it all caffeine-free? No need for a boost when you're on the sideline every race.

Pollen count in GA is off the charts this time of year. I'll go with crash if there's rain and allergy in good weather.

I usually just wear my own team's kit. I think these are cool though. If I had the xtra cash I'd get the obnoxious venom kit.

Skulls. Not something I'd put on my jersey. Our club president wears white sometimes. Guess it is being made with double width fabric.

Wow. Abercrombie on bikes. Useless, and most likely crappily made. Cool.

Maybe the problem is not the clothes or the bike. I suspect you just have a crappy attitude.

I'd wear the white jersey with the black shorts, but I don't think there's any way I'll be putting on white lycra shorts. Maybe I can convince my wife though...
