Can't beat 'em for the price. Got Coast and Elk jerseys, and they fit like a charm. The sizing guidelines on the probikekit website are right on target. I just wish I had discovered their website before they sold out on their retro Kelme jerseys. I've been looking for an older Kelme jersey (from when they still rode Gios bikes) with no luck. Probikekit still has a few of them, but not in my size.

... 'bout the only complaint I've had is lack of sizes in some stuff I've wanted in the past... but those are the chances you take with their "closeout" approach (at least they indicate what's in stock... and what's not).

Be the bike.
Got mine on MondayPaulCL

Vitalico Seguros was a Spanish team that lasted from 1998 to 2000 to the best of my knowledge. Vitalico Seguros means "Life Insurance"

The team was short lived but had a really nice team kit.... it's still one of Spain's most popular team kits.

Some of the bigger name riders on this team were:
Prudencio Indurain - Miguel's little brother (and they look identical)
Hernan Beunahora
Angel Luis Casero
Juan Carlos Dominguez
Pedro Horrillo
Tobias Steinhauser
Andrei Zintchenko

and last but certainly not least as he is now the most famous of the bunch.... This was also the team that Oscar Freire rode for his first year as a Neo-Pro.

They were a strong team that was a victim of the Spanish economy at the time.

Anyone have something I missed? Feel free to add to this.

I did order the "retro" Kelme jersey, over a year ago when they had it in more sizes. It says Look and not Gios, despite the picture on their site. If you're a fellow Gios rider, they have the Mobilvetta jersey, which should have Gios on it (mine should be here any day).

I also have the 2001 Alexia-Index jersey, which I got at World Cycling back when they were closing out the 2001 stuff, which also says Gios on it.

But probably the ultimate Gios rider jersey is the Brooklyn jersey, available either in synthetic by Giordana or wool from vintagevelos.com. The fact that 98% of your fellow riders won't know the Brooklyn-Gios connection makes it even cooler. -Dave
thanks for the gios infotarwheel

Yep, I'm another Gios owner. I particularly like the Kelme jerseys because of the graphics and they're just a cool team. I'll take a look at the other ones you mentioned. Excelsports has got the retro Brooklyn jerseys, but I'm too cheap to spend $65 -- hence my interest in $20 jerseys at probikekit.

Over two weeksPaulCL

I ordered mine about 20 days ago, got an email a week later telling me to expect delivery in 7-10 business days, then got an email with specific delivery date. I don't remember my actual date of order, but I would guess the entire process took close to three weeks.

Probikekit ships all USA orders once per week to a distribution facility in Idaho (I think) then ship them out UPS one by one.

Thanks for the ETA on delivery. I ordered a few weeks ago and got a confirmation email, but I have not yet gotten any emails with delivery/ETA information. Guess I'll be waiting for a while longer.
