Thought I'd start a thread with a discussion on kits of local teams you like, or possibly don't like. Who knows, maybe one day you'll see a copy of your kit far from home...

I'll admit I'm partial to the University of Texas kits.


Texas Tech is amusing in their own Rock Racing sorta way - though they do look sharp




Couldn't figure how to embed this one, but a local team, Wooly Mammoth always has flashy and entertaining kits:

Not to hijack the thread, but I think you avatar is funnier than sh_t! I am assuming it Ms Hatch inspired.

Nice thread...And nice avatar!! :D

I am partial to the look of my own teams' kits. We tried to copy Steijn Devolder's Belgian National Champion Quick Step kit, and it so happened our sponsor used those colors in their products...

gotta say that I love those Vitamin cottage kits! Good colors, not too drastic.
the Wolly Mammoth kits from the earlier link, THAT's drastic. I think I'd feel stupid wearing that kit.

I saw this thread and the Woolly Mammoth kit was the first thing that came to mind. Very Cipollini-esque. You gotta have the cojones to wear that kit.

Too bad you always see those guys going out the back.

Here's one from a few years ago. This rider is now on the Jelly Belly Pro team. At 6'6", he has "Big Bird" power.

(PS this is my team, also)

Brown? University of Texas? Brown? It's burnt orange. The picture certainly doesn't do the color justice. Granted, orange ain't much better than brown. But brown this isn't.
