Rock Racing Kit

I knew that they would start selling Rock racing Kits this year and I was wondering the cost. I figure if the jeans are $300 - $400 , how much for the kits.

I just read that the bibs will $220 and $180 for a jersey.

Yikes !!..although that green skull is pretty darn cool.

I am sure people will buy it. Personally I rather spent my money on something more useful. Like saving it for a Force group.

$400 for the only team kit that frames your junk more blatantly than the Liquid Fitness kit? No thanks.

Their kit is a little over the top for my tastes, but I really dug the green DeRosas they were riding at the ToC.

The tour of california Rock Racing kit would look out of place without the shoe covers, lime green bike and the cadillac following.
At the Dash 4 Cash race today, there was somebody in a Rock Racing kit (I assume on the team). It was white with the black skull logo. It looked nice.

Then I'll have to save and beg to find the arm warmers, leg warmers, shoe covers and helmet.
'Cause if I look like I'm on the team, don'cha think I'll go faster? Like when I got my new Keds? I know I was faster!!

I see men in green with impressive cod pieces...which is great. I recommend that all men wear this kit. Well, okay, you can pretty much just wear the bib/shorts and whatever jersey you want which would be your own unique style and you'd save $180 bucks.

Other than that...those kits are butt ugly.

They didn't show how much for the official team cod piece... not that I'd need one.

Afraid the bibs would be a little baggy in the front, huh?

How or why does this get sold on Ebay. Does this mean it is used ?

Does it come in carbon fiber ?

I like their black and neon green kit. I didn't really realize they're skeleton-style until someone mentioned it on the road forum... most of the pics I've seen earlier were side views.

To me they don't seem as loud as ones with many sponsor logos. Actually, it may have many sponsor logos, but they're kind of subtle in black/white compared to neon green.

I like the color scheme in the same way I like the Cannondale Liquidgas bike color scheme.
