    Both my 7 and 2 year olds feel strongly that we should kit the entire family with these. :)

    At least we won't have Phonak to kick around this year. They've pulled out of professional cycling--sick of dealing with doping.

    i love most of the pink ones, they're well class!

    Also like the liquigas lime green one, but yeah i think phonak is nasty

    Its just that horrible shade of yellow with the green -looks sickening.

    I like Astana Railways jersey.

    I like Veno so that makes a diff. I do not like some of the french jersies the shcmes seem confusing and too loud.

    I can agree with you that the Peugeot jersey still looks good.

    However, I disagree with you about Z. A simple but distinctive design - I'm just waiting for it to reappear in the retro jersey catalog so I can buy it again.

    I just wish someone would tell that fine European gas distribution company that the English translation of their company name is "Leaky Gas."

    :D

    I think the pink T-Mobile jersey were very classy, and the cool adidas stripes on the shorts. I think some ugly jerseys were the green and orange ones in the Giro this year, i forget the name of the team but they had the kom. Also BMC, they're so bland compared to the previous year. 2006 Cofidis was terrible, red and purple? Silence-Lotto also uses that bad color scheme (I actually liked the Predictor-Lotto jerseys last year)

    That's just a cheap ripoff of the much classier Sunbury Cycling Club jersey. They should be very ashamed!

    Not to take anything away from how bad Phonak's kit looked but I really don't like the Rock Racing's uniform (in any of the multiple colors).
    It seems like that team and uniform was designed just for marketing purposes. I mean, do they need cadalacs as their team cars?

    Hey Banditboy,

    Don't you think all teams are are "just for marketing purposes"? Why else would a company sponsor a team? Team cars that are out of the ordinary get more attention and therefore are a better marketing "vehicle". Sorry if you made the post in jest but there are too many people out there that are that stupid.

    I wouldn't call them "bad" but Saxo's kit is horribly generic looking, especially as a change-over from the striking CSC kit.

    I liked AG2R's pre-Tour upgrade as well.

    For some reason, I absolutely hate Francais des Jeux's look. Too white.
