Rock Racing went belly up ages ago. Never got past Continental Status.

There are about 15 versions of the Rock kit on samewood (chinese retailer). They all look as bad as the original one ....

I liked the 1st Cervelo kits when they came out and the BMC ones as well.

I actually thought that RR kit looked good on all the old drug cheats that the team was full of.

Still the best kit around :wink: ...

IIRC you could only buy RR kit directly off them at crazy prices..they are a clothing manufacturer after all...so from anywhere else is just a copy.

Oh dear. Not sure if the second one from the left is a leftie or a rightie or ahem, not as endowed.
