    I'd been thinking of getting something.
    Anyone see the interviews after the womens road race?
    Logo's seem blurred beyond recognition after one rainy session

    Yes, I spotted the blurriness, made them look very cheap!

    I imagine that you would be blurred too if you had just spent a few hours with road spray.

    It may just be a layer of dirt.

    It did look like the ink had run though, as opposed to dirt - the logos were blurred. I'd certainly have expected them to look dirty. I've been soaked to the skin in various tops and never had ink-running effect.

    All credit to the cyclists for riding in that! Even the slightest corner looked lethal.

    From about 16 seconds. Looks blurred, not just wet or dirty?

    We bought some (t-shirts, hoodies, windproofs) today and they are very good quality. That's just the regular clothing, though, I couldn't find any replica kit to check.

    To be honest I was rather hoping to pick up a cycling jersey in a post Olympic sales! What a tight arse I am!
     
  9. hmm - it certainly does look a bit 'non-colourfast'....

    I haven't had a look at the replica stuff up close but usually the replica team kit on sale is different to the team issue gear - if it is the top then the most obvious thing being full zips as opposed to quarter zips but the material is different too and bit less robust and more like a mesh and sometimes lycra arms. You can sometimes also buy the team issue clothes but they are about double the price.
