Best BF Team Kit

Notices
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

Best BF Team Kit

Another useless BF topic -
I think Substructure's Cliff Bar kit is by far the best looking of any I've seen on BF (or anywhere for that matter). I want one!

After looking at the Luna kits online this morning I must say they have a certian appeal to them as well.
But to me, most team kits seem rather unimaginative and bland.

Who do you think has the best team kit you've seen on the forum? Feel free to post photos.
your's truley,
Mr. Blackwell

Unless you're on a team, wearing a team kit is gay.

I really like these local team kits:

ABD/Gear Grinder Elite team from the Chicago / Milwaukee area -



This South Australia.Com is pretty cool. We only saw this one rider, Cameron Meyer, but they've got a full squad down under -



But I gotta hand it to Rock Racing when they had the red Sprint Point leaders jersey and the Yellow overall jersey during Superweek -



They went through the trouble of getting bibs that match the jerseys -





Plus they brought out the hot wheels too!



Sterling Magnell and Rahsaan Bahati were truly styling during Superweek!!

Ha! I don't know if I'd call that a team kit, but very nice nonetheless. I'm just not sure I could get away with riding it on the tuesday night group ride.

Quite hypocritical. I think team kits, worn by someone not on a team, is gay. Stupid, corny, Fred, whatever word doesn't offend you. If you want to only read replies that you agree with or are politically correct in your own mind, go elsewhere. No need for drama.

I'll wear an LBS jersey....in this case the shop in boulder where I most recently purchased my new bike, Vecchios. And I have a couple of jerseys from events like the Iron Horse. But generally the team kit thing leaves me cold. Its just ....grasping for the word here.....too much. Unless you're a real hammerhead, it seems over blown.
I'd post pictures of the Vecchios jersey but suck at doing so.

dude - watch bugs bunny much? Probably before your time. Hence the reason you missed the sarcasm in the first post. I was intentionally implying the immaturity of your post with my response by using a line of a (once) popular cartoon character.

I thought your initial post was more immature than offensive and frankly blatantly trolling.

I have a couple of pro team kits I wear for various reasons in addition to my own team kits. For starters you can get good deals on excellent quality clothing that is being cleared out because the team either folded or changed sponsors. I got my CSC Assos kit a couple of years ago for $60. Full Assos clothing for $60 - I don't care if it said team jack ass on it, I'd take it. I also thought it was a sharp kit and I liked some of the riders. I'd been kind of wanting a Chipotle/Slipstream kit too just because I thought they were sharp and a couple of local guys are on the team (Chan McRae and Pat McCarty). I'm a fan of the team - its no more, uhm, what was the word? Oh yeah 'gay' than wearing a Cowboys or Texans jersey while playing flag football.

What's up, Doc?

I'm getting old, you're getting old even Lazyass is getting old but Bugs is timeless.

I have a Domina Vacanze jersey that gets a little bit of use and a U of Florida club team jersey tht gets lots of use. Wouldn't wear them at races but otherwise......

No, I never raced with Mario though I am a UF alum.
