    Default That neck tie looks funny.

    Team Leopard-Trek presentation - Photo - VeloNews

    Never been a fan of the man scarf. Or the ma-rf. Makes me want to ba-rf.

    And the uniforms are a bit Team Sky-ish to me.

    I like the kit. I quite like the bikes too, actually. They're certainly an exercise in restraint compared to last year's Radio Shack tam bikes.

    The matching outfits, with the scarves and whatnot? Blech.

    botox. hair transplants. facelifts. i see where this is going.

    i am extremely surprised not to see a photo of someone being handed some kind of transparent prize for the effort they put in to make the event happen.

    why are there ONLY MEN in those pictures? That cant be legal?

    I wonder how many of us shave our legs because we're vain.

    Maybe now we'll quit hearing about Barnhole Riis.

    I LOVE the comments on Velonews. Only reason I can see to read it.

    Re the team kit... must be the year for black, white and pale blue. Very classy but...

    Watching the summer crits down here this week I could not tell the difference between Garmin-Cervelo and Sky in the bunch. Now this? Good luck Phil and Paul.

    the scarf is dreadful even after handicapping for euro-cycling gayness. team jersey is cool, bibs are ugly, Di2 Madone is flippin sweet. I'd ride it like a silly little freak.

    Those outfits look better than 2/3s of the stuff I've seen in other team presentations. Cancellera makes it work.

    The kits look great.

    The bike colourways? Meh. And Sacha White should have copyrighted that offset graphics thing. He'd be making some real cash now.
    GO!

    Looks pretty good all around. The Rapha resemblance is close (in the presentation) and even on the website. Might just be rumors, but I read they sought design advice from the retailer.

    Still don't like the name though. Schlecks on Treks would be a better team name.

    Given some of the alternatives, I will take the scarf. Pulling a spoon train during training camp ain't my idea of a good time.

    Does anyone have a preferred method for removing hairgel from carbon rims ? My brakes stink ever since I went Jheri-curl like all those pretty-pretty bike racing boys.

    I've heard rumours that Paris-Roubaix may become a nice-weather only race in the future. Too many teams get their panties all in a wad nowadays when the precious Frank Lloyd Wright inspired "team kit" gets a bit of dirt on it.

    Oh horrors ! . . . Carrie Bradshaw types will desert the sport if everything doesn't look perfect.

    Does anyone remember when this wasn't a sport full of metrosexual influence ? Is this Hincapies fault ? Or is it Julich ?

    I want to see an HONEST team presentation - in a bar in Brussels when it is pissing -down rain and 33 degrees outside. Enough cigarette smoke to choke Keith Richards. Effin black shorts and a jersey with at most two colours on it, and not designed to appeal to those with dyslexia or ADHD. Add a bunch of skanky Amsterdam window-girls doing the honors of posing with the riders while horrible Euro-Disco music plays through a tinny PA system. At most maybe one millionaire in the whole goddamn place instead of the endless cast of Investment-Banking-big-bucks-bozos that seem to be drawn to modern bike racing. Yeah, I'm talkin' bout you Weisel, and all your tasseled loafer friends hanging around the effin' VIP tent fer chrissakes.

    VIP tents . . . WTF has happened to bicycle racing ??

    Sport desperately needs more Peter Post and Sean Kelly. Less man-scarves. Much less.

    Oy.

    You're just living with a different delusion, idealizing "hardness" over tailoring. Bike racing is, and always has been, about selling newspapers. And it's always been harder than humanly possible.
