odd enough
isn't the Sky 2013 Kit vaguely similar to the 2012 Chinese "replica" bar side band and white font? :)

Well, it says Sky on it, it's got a stripe down the back, and it's a black cycling jersey. :wink:

It's such a simple design it's going to be vaguely similar to pretty much anything.

well, thus Chinese do it "vaugely" similar and months before for 1/10 (40/400$) of the price :mrgreen:

^^^^that was funny^^^^
anyway, is anyone surprised by the Rapha Sky kit? Last years design was already quite simple by pro cycling standards. Having Rapha's logo on it is just a sideways move if you ask me. I do think it makes more sense to see Rapha than adidas. I would much rather support a company that is "all in" as far as cycling goes. Seems adidas cant say that though it does appear they might be trying to get back in the game.
I dont own any Rapha but have known some of the US riders. Might try and pick something up this season to check out.

Interestingly, it appears he may have picked up an endorsement from Specialized (shoes, helmet, sunglasses) ?

I could be wrong but I think Hansen ALWAYS uses a 38 (or 40) cm handelbar


I was watching the highlights of the Bay Crits and Henderson was off the front couple of times and it looked like he was running narrow bars then.

Also RIDE noted in their review of pro bikes last year that of all the bikes they measured, Hansen had the narrowest bars

Does Ride have online versions- they seem to have some cool shit but I never end up seeing copies in the US
