It is obvious that you've never watched the Giro or the Vuelta. Compacts all around for some of the insane climbs like the Bolo del Mundo last Saturday or the Mortirolo in the Giro.

Actually, I am aware and just slinging mud at Salsa, the anti-compact rider. I'm a very light climbing specialist and I absolutely love attacking in the climbs with my Record 11 compact.

Ah, I misunderstood. Sorry about that!
Now you are privy to the inside joke. :D Compacts, saddle bags, etc., all forbidden by real riders (who do not race). :p

or about climbing specialist racers who drop everybody on the hills, but can't post any results, palmarès or even riding stats ?

Only racers can ask me about my results.

Hope there is a new jersey in the works for 2011 Season - their existing one was way too busy with sponsors - looked like NASCAR (insert vomiting sound).

Anyone see the new Androni Giacattoli kit yet?

I'm hoping for heaps of Celeste and fewer sponsor logos - the old one was an ugly cluttered billboard of ads which I don't think does the sponsors any good anyway as their logo just gets lost in that sea of logos.

Not much better than last years AG kit, but there is at least some Celeste on it.

kbwh - Thanks (Tak) - How much better would that look if you removed the logos from the lower half of the front of that jersey? It would almost be nice. Sadly, still too much clutter IMHO.

Why? The fact that anyone gives a flying fornication about jerseys and has a discussion is beyond me. The only time I care about team kits is if I'm the one having to wear them, in which case I really only care if the leg grippies and chamois are comfortable.

Me, I like to be well dressed and visible when I ride. I never wear pro team kit.
Our club kit is just fine, made by Bergamo too.

Shall post in the pro thread.

I think a team like this is a little too under the radar for the pro cycling forum, but that's just me.

I'm also about visibility, but very obsessed with the comfort of the bib shorts.
