|hey - just my opinion and no need to flame...just stating what i think. imho, the new dura-ace cranks are the ugliest thing i have ever seen hung on a bike, followed closely by the shifters and r derailleur. (fwiw, i thought the old da crank was beautiful.)
again, just my opinion ;)
ps - totally agree with the comment about the arm bands.

|My favorite is still the 1999 version, followed by 2002. If nothing else, the 2004 edition should be easy to spot in the crowd, because those horizontal red/white stripes really stand out.
Lance and Ekimov have rainbow stripes on their sleeves, and that's too noisy. As a former national champion, George started wearing red/white/blue stripes on his sleeves, and that's got to be even noisier.

|not that anyone should care what i think, but...
the blue is too dark, doesn't show contrast.
the bands on the sleves are a bad idea, and should be reserved for ex-national/world champs.
the bands are too thick.
the outfit looks too nautical, not athletic.
i'm interested to see what the back looks like, i hope the incorporated the red better.

|.. the jersey kinda makes them look heavy in the gut. I should know because I am heavy in the gut. Come to think of it, now when I see all of the Postal jerseys out and about this summer I won't feel so bad. I might fit in with the cycling crowd instead of being the fat kid on a bike. I like 'dem new jerseys boys! :)|
|Red & white band -- Austrian champ?||Mordi|

|The red & white band looks like something a former Austrian national champion would wear. I doubt we'd see new Fassa kit with a red, white & blue band . . .
All in all, the new unies are not too bad looking.

|More red and less blue would have been nice. Too much blue and too dark. Red bibs would have looked better and been a little cooler in the hot sun. No contrast, everything is dark blue.|

|I don't know. I always found the Postal kits to be rather conservative and boring looking. Then again, it's the US Postal Service.|| |
