Beat me too it Raineman, if you've sweated in black kit it doesn't look good!

Black also provides a good background so people can read sponsor logos. It goes with almost everything, including most frame colors.

Who cares what it looks like post race. That looks boss. Rode a hard race. Worked hard. Might as well have a changing tent right before finish line so that they can put on new kits to look good post race so they don't have salt residue on their clothing. Sounds important.

the kit is awful, the helmets are ridiculous... but i very much dig the Bianchi celeste. it's the only bike that actually has it's own colour and IMO Bianchi should stick with it no matter what :thumbup:

Bike paint job? Bianchi Celeste has been around for years...looks great imo, more traditional compared to previous years and teams...

Just because something has been around for a while doesn't:

1. Mean it looks good.
2. Matches the kit.
3. Can't be made to match the kits.

The regular xr2 paintjob is so much better! Stunning!

Might be me and my old ways, but it just seems wrong to run a Bianchi on anything but Campy. Makes the bike gods cry.

is there a rule of some kind that says everything must match the kit and look alike? :roll:

just becuse a bike matches the kit, doesn't mean it looks any good

It doesn't have to match, but coordination should be important.
