Kits, the coolest, the baddest and the uggliest

Postby Livetoride » Fri Oct 22, 2010 11:55 am

Hey All,
Not sure if anyone else has the interest in cycling gear, Jerseys and bibs as I do, BUT I got this amazing kit in the US from Rock Racing. Its the coolest kit I have seen and figured MAYBE there's a few folks here who might appreciate it.

Anyhow, this post if anyone is interested is a show n tell of kits, lets see the good, the bad and the ugly of cycling kits.

PS; My kit ROCKS (pardon the pun) :P :P

It looks like Ed Hardy has started to make cycling gear - each to their own I guess :lol:

I reckon that the RR and the Footon kit are on par.

At least both of them are done now at PT or PC level ... :P

The team is affiliated with a clothing company Balls Rock and Republic Clothing, I'm sure the company was having financial problems especially when they where trying to achieve pro tour status for the upcoming season...

Checking Google now ....

Okay they didn't get pro status or continental for this season and I don't think they where getting it for next, the team is nothing spectacular although they have sponsored a lot of rides in the USA which isn't a bad thing

Im with you, I love the Rock Racing kits, the London Rocks is robably my fave, bit exxe though so I dont have any yet.

BMC team kit is good.

I have a McGrath foundation PINK kit which I quite like. Just like Tony's

My Froot Loops jersey is also a fave of mine, as is my Jelly Belly and Jittery Joes team kits.
