It's time for the annual 'best team kit' thread.

I'm really digging Illes Balearas this year. Huge improvement.

Liberty Seguros took a step back. Last year's was better.

When is someone going to cut off those stupid extensions on Disco's shorts?

I was going to say Ileas Baleares as well. I dig the black. I don't like Milram or Quick-step. I like Rabobank going back to the darker orange.

Cofidis has the worst kit in the pro peloton. Boring, out of date and generic; dare I say that Cofidis' kit looks worse than anything that Primal Wear has ever released?

As for favorite kit, I love Francais de Jeux. I'm keen on the all-white, but only until Labor Day.

That's not the illes baleares kit, it's the Caisse d'Epargne kit; they have two. It is pretty attractive.

Apart from that they're all pretty scary, blue, or boring. CSC is cool in red and black but has gotten a little weird over the years. Lampre was drawn in with a highlighter.

If you really mean Illes Balearas, and not Caisse d'Epargne then we must have completely opposite tastes.

The Illes Balearas kits are fugly, and Liberty's are pretty bland and boring too (last years and this years - just look how they ruined Vino's beautiful Kazhak Champs outfit).

The bits on the Disco shorts are about the only nice touch, IMO.

I guess CSC is my current fave, but i preferred last years.

In the end all of them look the bomb when you see a pro riding past you in full kit. :)

Even though it's ultra-poseur of me to say, I wish that I could've found a source for the T-Mobile Kazakh kit. I'm all about the blue and yellow, but only if it came without logos plastered all over it.

Sorry, I ain't advertising for T-Mobile when I use VERIZON.

I love the Barloworld kit -- basically ripped off from the Saeco kits.

Milram is pretty nice. They incorporated the retro look very well. Now if only it wasn't the same color as Disco, Bouyges Telecom, & Gerolsteiner!

Quick Step is okay, kinda liked last years more.

Liberty sucks.

Caisse D'whatever is nice. Dig the carbon weave.

The best? Kodak/Sierra Nevada. You can really make them out well. Plus their Merckx's are siiiicckkk.

FD Juex

I always liked the FD Juex kits for their simplicity. Same with the Spanish National team jerseys.

The worst were the old Vini Cariola (sp?) kits.

FdJ made the save of the year

going with the navy shorts.the all white was too much,big logo easy to spot from above. I like the retro look of the Milram, just hate the color. Too much Blue. Ileas Bal's "French Kit" looks good,but can ya imagine wearing all black on a hot climbing stage in the Pyr?

I completely disagree.

Cofidis are classy and well done. I do like FDJ too, but I am NOT keen on riding with all white kit, especially in the rain.

vote for milram...

...and agree on the color. dont care for that powder blue everyone is wearing. navy and orange are taken, so that wouldnt work for them. too bad they dont ride bianchi. celeste would look nice.

What about the Lampre-Fondital kit? Last year's Lampre-Caffita kit was pretty cool; I think this year's Lampre kit has too much pink and white. Not as sharp as last year.
