    Cant decide between two jerseys ... cofidis or rabobank?

    My bike its red black and silver, with red tyres and red bottle cages. So I think the cofidis jersey would match the 'colour scheme' well, but on the other hand, I really like the orange of the rabobank strip. Als the rabobank strip doesnt have a white back like the cofidis one, which would only get dirty over time...

    so what should I go for....??

    I'd go for colour co-ordination!

    If riding in sh!tty weather all the time avoid the white back, but if not get it...Just don't do what Mags does, wear a hi viz - not round Glasgow anyway........;)

    Agreed - last years CSC jersey or this years Caisse d’Epargne kit should look great.

    If you decide against a team jersey, I can recommend the Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative Revolution Velocity jersey - good quality & black and red

    Depends if you want a retro jersey in a couple of years time or not, but then again I think both sponsors are due at the end of this season

    I have the confidis jersey and it is pretty smart.

    You are correct about the white bit at the back - not easy to keep clean

    went for the cofidis strip

    hope it'll come for the weekend or on saturday. I ordered off of wiggle, they're usuallly pretty fast arent they?
  11. In my experience, I've only used their free post btw; they are very fast, 2-3 at the most, often just 1 if an item is in stock. If its out of stock it takes a while to process the order.

    Good call, that would have been my suggestion, certainly a better colourway than the Rabobank orange/blue/white.

    Following my recent enforced layoff from work I used the money I saved on NOT driving 50 miles a day to and from work to purchase a 2006 ltd. edition CSC Ivan Basso Giro winners kit, bibs and jersey (lovely pink jersey):smile:. I thought it would be highly visible, wearing pink doesn't bother me, but apparently according to one of the guys in the club, it's not as visible as I thought it would be, Oh well.
