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

Who will be the first... Rock Racing Kits

http://www.rockracing.com/shop/index.php

who will be the first to sport the all white kit??? I've never seen it on anyone before but maybe that's for a reason...

I'm getting the Venom Kit for sure (flame suit on)

Can't say I'm a big fan of the team but I have to admit, I like the looks of the Road Rash Jersey.

Man, I have to wait another month? I'm ready to order the O.G. kit (black). I heard you get a coupon for your LTS (Local Tattoo Shop) and a sample of doped blood. Specify blood type before ordering. The order code is "TDF2009".

It would be cool to get the black kit, and wear it late at night as you ride around the city fighting crime and stuff. I would add a cape and a coil of climbing rope with a grappling hook. This kit rocks.

I like it but not enough to spend the kind of money I'm sure they'll be asking.

Saw a couple RR racers at the Sea Otter podium, and I thought the kit looked good on tv, but up close with their custom painted bikes it is like no other cycling gear I've seen. I can see why people either hate it or love it. I'm the later, but I already have enough gear thats not from my current team to last years.

That is only because the Cadillac's you see don't have such eye-catching graphics.

You gotta love mass produced cliched badass merchandise. What's next, CF spinnaz?

Sorry, I have some taste. I'll be steering clear.
