Not to forget the huge amounts of dough you made for every one of the Monuments and Grand Tour podiums you achieved :thumbup:

But seriously, funny how Nibali is venting his frustration nobody coming with him. Guess everyone still remembers how much he pulled last time he went clear with Cancellara and Gerrans on the Poggio :mrgreen:

Oh wow, I had no idea, interesting. Always took them for a smaller, grassroots brand. Thanks for correcting me! :thumbup:

I thought rain jackets had to be either transparent or at least team coloured. Okay, so the prevalence of black Gabbas in the peloton on a day like Sunday is quite large, it's a nightmare for fans and commentators who can't tell who is who.

Showers Pass IS a small, grass roots company - so it's not likely they can easily make team coordinated kit. Everything is available in PNW colors (a joke many might not get).
They sponsor our local team (I'm actually wearing the Rogue hoodie right now). They are an awesome group of cycling enthusiasts and their customer service (at least to regional shops) is as good as it gets. Before we picked them up as a sponsor - shops near me would place an order one day during the week and often had product delivered by one of the owners within a day or two.

If their gloves are half as good as their jackets...

I've got teammates and friends using anything from the SP liner to the Hardshell - these aren't where I'd look if your aim is aero performance but if you're looking to block out the elements they're fantastic. The softshell and hardshell gloves are very popular here around the Pacific Northwest and the finish quality on all the garments I have is outstanding.


Edit: and yes, their waterproof socks are actually waterproof. It's mind-boggling.

Okay, just ordered some socks and a Pro Tech ST rain jacket. Let you know what I think after I try them in the rain. I ride in the rain a good bit in the Spring and good clothing is essential to not having it suck. The look like a cool company.

Saw it some time ago on Facebook. Could possibly be the new Venge (?).

Most likely not, it's one of the developers custom toys. Nibali was around and the employee wanted him with his toy on the picture.

I don't think they're in the business of making rideable toys in Morgan Hill. Yet there is a history of unmarked prototypes appearing there before they're seen elsewhere. The Venge is due for remodeling.
