    Radioshack-Nissan-Trek kit

    Evolution. Enter red.



    Curious how prominent "Leopard" still is.

    They do anything just to win a salami in ridiculous races. I take my gear out of the car and put my bike together. Tourists and locals are watching from sidewalk cafes. Non-racers. The emptiness of those lives shocks me. It was the illest of times, it was the dopest of times. And we looked damn good. Actually the autobus broke down somewhere on the Mortirolo.

    Yeah, I saw that too.


    Maybe it's payback for helping RadioShack sever ties with Armstrong/U.S.? :shrugs:



    I don't really care for the kit; BTW. Too boring for a team of that caliper. :shrugs again:

    Well, considering they all have yellow Livestrong bands on the left sleeve one must presume your assumption is wrong.

    The national champions kits are cool. The US one is in that shot but Cancellaras looks awesome as well as Frank Schleck's and Wagners German one as well. I thought it was cool way to work in the national colors.

    Hmm.

    Haven't thought of that.


    Maybe that's an untouchable?

    Did you happen to see the MSRP on this? $11,686.48 (48 cents? Really?)

    WHOA! It's like 10 years of my bike budget!

    I believe the riders specifically requested Shimano.

    Is the Schack skimping on staff, this looks like something designed by a web developer...am also expecting a pop-up window to show up anytime.

    I guess Leopard's contract with Shimano was for more than one year. The old Radioshack/Discovery/USPS organisation has been dissolved, but both organisations were on Trek/Bontrager gear.

    I liked last year's white bike paint jobs better than this year's black. Luckily it's the classic Leopard team kit that's evolving, not the "what shall we do this year?"-hapless Radioshack kit.

    They look as if they're all the Luxembourg national champion although IIRC the Lux flag has the blue at the top.

    Agree that the bike looks better than the jersey, and that the white, silver and baby-blue one from last year was nicer.

    Agreed. Was hoping for a new design, this is disappointing.


    Saxo Bank kit starting to look better despite the Eagle head.

    Time to do a Design Wrap-up of all of the kits?

    It's funny you should mention that...

    If Andy Schleck (Or anyone on the team) does indeed win the TDF this year, it'll be a first with that Trek frame model (Madone), I believe.
