Team Kits And Manly Manliness

9 Jan

I was thinking that this year I would eschew any type of team kit or sponsored brand name riding gear. You know, show up on the dork bike wearing dorky shorts and jersey and just ride. However, I’m a little flaky, guilty of the occasional wide stance (thanks BobbyB). So, when Jamie sent me an e-mail containing the new DNA / Revolution kit I changed my mind about eschewing team kitness. I now fully embrace it. At least for today.




I got nothing to say about that first kit. Actually, that’s a lie but I’m going to refrain. I do however, really like the plain gray kit as well as the pink kit. As a matter of fact, I like the pink kit so much I’m going to place an order. After all, I really should be wearing pink. Not only do I look fabulous in pink it also keeps my high levels of manly manliness in check.

    This is the bike that fits with the pink wear

    I’d like to have one of that colour but the city I live is not that “open mind” so “I’d put my prestige at risk”, 😉

    Just rip their legs off wearing cut offs

    Pink jersey? Maybe. Pink shorts? No way. Black is the color for shorts for this reason:

    Seriously, has anyone ever noticed that tom boonen has a huge schlong? It’s either that or he gets really excited about winning races…

    I don’t think I’ll make it to goose. Have fun.

    Cool biking gear! You’ve always been one to look the part. I’ll try and comment on my photos. Thanks Brad!

    fernandoj-If I were into the full suspension thing, I’d be on that bike.

    Forrest-I was thinking about cutting off the bottom half of my jersey. A belly jersey would be cool.

    KK-That’s what I’m talking about. Pink yeah!

    Botched-I don’t speak German. You’ll be missed.

    Do those things come in tiny euro speedo style?

    je-If they did I’d be the first in line.

    I guess all you need to do is get the scissors out and turn your bottoms into a speedo.

    Heck, do it to the bibs and you’ll have the Borat look down!

    Botched: glad that photo gave you a good laugh. The rules of manliness require that I say I’ve never noticed that about Boonen, even though this study would indicate I’m in the minority of men:

    This is the relevant part of the above study:

    Brad: so if I’m interpreting your comment correctly, you’re admitting that you’re a bit of an exhibitionist? 😉

    A pink jersey with a design similar to the one with black, orange and white as its main colors? What a terrific, original idea!

    Love the pink ! And I thought I was the only guy who liked pink jerseys (based on my inability to find any, except the T-Mobile one). Thanks for pointing this one out. Though I’m still more likely to ride in mtb shorts and t-shirt.
