Anything blue & white. I'm so da*m sick of blue & white that I could....well, never mind. IMO, the pink of T Mobile is pretty awful too.

My only criteria...

...is pretty much that men's shorts eaither be black or have a black panel in the front. Otherwise, it's too easy to tell the democrats from the republicans. That is, who leans to the left and who leans to the right. The team above might not have the prettiest kits in the world, but they do meet my criteria; however, my team kit this year will not. :eek:

Polti

I was never a big fan of the old Polti team jersey.


What's with the logo anyway? It looks like some one is sticking a beer bottle up a swollen rectum or someting.

And a black (dark) panel in the back too. A couple of years ago a local team had pale yellow shorts that left nothing to the imagination if you got behind one of these guys in a paceline - ewww. Even my wife who does not mind peeking at a pair of cute buns from time to time could not stomach drafting these guys for long periods of time.

They're spandex...

They're spandex, therefore, they're all ugly.

FYI: They're not "uniforms" they're kits. Please feel free to use the proper terminology. Uniforms are for cops and football players. Kits are for bike racers.

So who has some of the ugliest uniforms that you've seen. Here is my nomination:

Man, that green is uber ugly!!
Are they English? They have that sun-deprived pasty complexion, and the design, or lack there of leads me to speculate that they are.

Just flip through cycling weekly this time of year and you'll see a plethora of poorly designed team kit.

That said, i guess they're not English, seeing as Louis Garneau (sp?) is the sponsor.

you're right. FUGLY :eek:

they are an english team. based in canada and the u.s. the company Louis Garneau isn't european at all. they originated out of canada and the company has deep routes here. they do have international distribution, but they remain distinctly canadian. french people don't just live in france, after all.

God, you're right. But for some reason, now I really want a Polti jersey to wear while racing in alleycats or while cruising with the hooligans.

did i say LG was a european company? i think not. i'm fully aware of where LG is from.

i haven't seen their stuff in Europe, unless it's worn by a NA cyclist. never liked it anyway - cheap and ugly at overinflated prices.

you're truly an idiot. i meant english as in english-speaking, not as in from england. moron. why don't you try and string together some witty lines and p.m. them to me in order to spare everyone from your having to read your lame posts. a simple misunderstanding is all it was. theyre not from england, theyre from cananda. so you were wrong, regardless.

idiot? moron? you're the one who says the're english, when in fact they're canadian. you're also the one who has reverted to name calling. that's very mature of you, chappeau!

no need to PM, seeing as you're the only one who seemed to care what the last post was.

have a good one ;)

I went to my first bike race today, and was thoroughly amused (read shocked) at just how much you could see. I made a pointed effort to keep my eyes above the waistline...at least while my husband was with me:p
