Grant’s ’12 Cat 3 March 10, 2012 by Andy Shen Speed Well 23 Comments Jean Tank March 12th, 2012 @ 6:20 PM What would you put on your kit if you didn’t have Ricky winning races for you anymore? Schiatuzzo Locknut March 12th, 2012 @ 11:35 PM Apparently you missed the point. Dorian Steerer March 12th, 2012 @ 6:43 PM Montecci not Mateucci!!! you have such of bad tates Miss. Chihuahua racing!!!! March 12th, 2012 @ 7:18 PM Hudson’s red kit is hot!!! But Misha makes them even hotter!!!! Re: Foundation Kit March 12th, 2012 @ 5:09 PM That sh@t is hot! Schiatuzzo Locknut March 12th, 2012 @ 5:40 PM Foundation – 2012 is a big step back from 2011, which was sharp and distinctive. 2012 kit is noisy. Houlihan/Cyclelife/Sanchez – Whatever they are called, new kit is milktoast. BH-Comedy Central – Improvement on both Comedy Central and BH-LG kit. Nice work Dan. Probably wins for best looking local kit, though WS United non-neo versions are right up there along with the iconic Mengoni kits. FGX – Just awful. Someone please tell me something went wrong with the actual printing of the kit, plese. AXA-Stans – Not much change but that camo has got to go. Champion Systems-Stans – Like the clean simple look. Someone needs to have a talk with Olson about his helmets though. Setanta – In theory not bad, but either every single guy on the team has gained 20 pounds or the kit is decidedly not slimming. Six Cycle – Looks like some of my infant daughters footy pajamas. Arc Racing – This is what happens when no thought or effort goes into a kit. Echelon Matteucci – Super Mario couldn’t make that kit look good. Dave Jordan – I want to like it but it just comes across as drab. Blue Ribbon – Time for an update boys. Sids – Look is dialed, don’t go recreating the wheel anytime soon (particularly after defeating Dave Jordan for NYC orange domination). Mengoni – Love the kits, hate what has become of the team. Wonder Wheel – Tough concepts to make work, but ugly is ugly. Scottos – Good, but the pre-red blue/white Luzzo kit was better – indeed one of the sharpest. Who did I miss? Quentin Internal Routing March 12th, 2012 @ 9:12 PM Kissena kit. New York City flag colors. Designed by over caffeinated Kinko’s employee circa 1972. May have been inspired by the band Kiss (or vice versa). Manny March 12th, 2012 @ 5:48 PM The pro Cat 5 team: siggis/nyvelocity schmalz March 12th, 2012 @ 5:53 PM And what about Rapha? Schiatuzzo Locknut March 12th, 2012 @ 6:12 PM Rapha – Epic, obviously . . not. Team members and sponsor to busy curating facial hair to worry about designing a kit. Siggis – Is that swedish for “unattached”?. Same basic kit for 5+ years and the sheer volume of riders has made Siggis the new “unattached.” Nothing funnier than seeing the “C” field for a CRCA race made up 90% of Siggis. Die Hard – I would put a checkerboard on my kit too if I had Ricy Lowe winning races for me. Gotham/Toga – I say this every year (or at least last year) – time to bring back the “Toga” kit from the glory days. Speedwell – Kit design conversation went something like this, “Hi, Champion Systems, we want it to be red and say speedwell, bye.” Fouriclasse – I said this last year but I swear that color combination gets them discount pricing. Can there be another explanation?

Samuel Dry Lube March 11th, 2012 @ 1:20 AM Nice kits Foundation. Always the haters never have anything good to say. Before you talk look at your self first. Milan Crank March 11th, 2012 @ 4:46 AM that was an honest statement. I’m not a hater but your kits are consistently ugly. Ugly enough to me to be a deterrent in ever considering joining your program. Try new colors, lose those fucking stripes, and be well.

Martin Grips March 11th, 2012 @ 1:45 PM Foundation kits are like Joan Rivers: they get slightly refreshed every year, but remain pretty heinous in general. Quinten Cable March 11th, 2012 @ 2:22 PM Big up to Victor Chan for taking the 7:30am 30 degree temperature shift for the Cat 4s.

Once they are all in the peloton…they all blend in. NYVC’s look is old, but that’s the point..”Tradition”… I bet you race wearing a radio shack kit.
