|Have you seen Super Mario's new team jersey. It makes me want to vomit. Take a look.
|LOL Looks like he's going to......||Troyboy|

|explode! holding that seat like that!|
|If I had hair like that . . .||morrison|
Jan 8, 2002 3:46 PM
|my wife would let me back into the bedroom!
That picture is hilarious!
|I have hair like that...||Ahimsa|
Jan 8, 2002 7:33 PM
|and your wife let me....
Heh heh heh!
Just kidding man...you left yourself open on that one and I just couldn't resist.
It's all this demon rum I tell ya!

|It looks like he's substituting his seat for a patented Michael Jackson package grab! That has to be a top contender for the ugliest '02 team kit contest.
I still kinda like how Cipo adds some color to the sport, like the muscle TT suit. Otherwise his ego is a bit much.
|It's all an image||mr_spin|
Jan 8, 2002 5:15 PM
|From what I've seen and read, that's all an image. He is actually a big family guy, a real sweetheart, the kind you bring home to mother. Or maybe that's an image, too.|
|Yes, he's Italian!||guido|

|Mario loves life: beautiful women, great pasta, wine, partying, and he gets to ride cutting edge bikes for money and adulation. Grateful for his fame, he entertains the crowds with style, panache, humor.
|that would be really fun for a while, but...||Tig|
Jan 9, 2002 5:13 AM
|...I'll take my life over his. I'm lucky enough to have a best friend who is also my wife and a loving family. Besides, I get to ride and race for FUN, not as a job.
Oh, you forgot to mention his love of clothes and shoes!
|What's he holding there in his right hand? (nm)||cory|

|that is sooooo bad, Cipo can get away with alot, but this is a disaster!!!! Someone phone the zoo...|

|The worst i have seen in a while. Maybe the worst. I'm surprised Castelli would want their symbol on that. In general i like Mario's added color to the sport, but that kit is just plain bad and ridiculous. If i rode for those guys i think i would pay a fine to wear something else so i wouldn't get laughed at. Let's hope it is a big Mario joke!!!|
|But, you have noticed it...||O|

|When he starts trouncing people in the Giro, or even winning Milan san remo, many watching around the world will notice the outfit and thus the sponsors' names.|
|now i know why he is one of the fastest men in the world nm||naf geezer|

|the pic says it's the uh......."new E5 Specialized." so yeah...the top tube looks funky shaped. like a round to rectangular...'course, the chainstays look rectangular, too, so it's probably just the pic. or my lack of glasses.|
|is that a big-S m4 sl?||Woof the dog|
Jan 9, 2002 1:48 AM
|oh d'oh. Still looks like an m4sl with that sloping tube - what could possibly be improved on a bike like that anyway?
the top tube also goes rectangular by the headtube in my bike, if thats what you mean.
Woof the master of puppies

|I like the kit. I could live without the shorts but I think the jersey's kind of cool. The bike on the other hand .....
But then I like Mapei's designs too and no one else seems to like them. Ah, it's so lonely in my world :-(
|Finally - A trend setter!!||Kristin|
Jan 9, 2002 7:55 AM
|Trend setters are and few between in the cycling world...this is such a conformists sport! You guys don't get it. The cycling motiff is getting old and tired. This is the next gen in roadie fashion. Just wait...18 months tops and 50% of you will be wearing something similar!|
|My vote for ugliest kit||McAndrus|
Jan 9, 2002 6:22 AM
|As long as we're talking ugly, take a look at Panaria's jersey.
Whenever I see pictures of this team, I have to blink.
|i vote the whole current lot of jersey's as ugly.||naf geezer|
Jan 9, 2002 6:30 AM
|they are all as bad as each other.
|Ugly yeah, but only $69.95!||Crankist|

|Im almost used to him in that type of flamboyant getup! It would be better with black shorts. So whats it gonna be "Specialized - Best Bike eh?!" I bet hes wishin he could be on a fine italian steed though- not that he would admit it in defiance of his sponsors though...|
