    If nothing else, Sky's kits are the coolest - look at them carefully - what do you notice most? No ads, no multiple sponsors - just Sky. Few teams have the money to only have one sponsor.

    After Sky - Saxo Bank - love their riders as well.

    Actually, they have 3 sponsors on their kit: Sky, Adidas, and Pinarello.

    BMC only has 2: BMC and Hincapie Sportswear.

    Everyone else has a babillion.

    I don't mind the sponsor names so much, as long as they are somewhat seamless. I've seen some kits that just look like they haphazzardly plastered the kit with the names. Crazy.

    I quite like BMC's. They have a bit of a pixelated like design to them instead of just being completely plain.

    Agree with you on Big George's kit. Makes me feel patriotic. I prefered the original white shorts/bibs though over the blue ones with the stars on the crotch.

    What is it with the canary yellow shoes? I want to say that it is Cavindish who wears them but that is probably wrong. It does make it easy to pick out that particular rider, which is probably the purpose, but I remember the shoes better than his name or team. I can't remember who wears them but it is one of the current leaders.

    I did have to giggle the first time I saw the neekkid Footon kit...

    I think the yellow shoes are Mavics. I know Chris Horner wears them.

    Meanwhile I could swear I posted a comment earlier about how I love George's shorts with the stars on them, but I guess I forgot to hit the submit button? Anyways.

    I like the Sky kits as well. I'm partial to turquoise though...and to the Adidas triple strip thing...so it makes sense.

    I also think that they have the hotest paint jobs on their bikes - I totally want one just for how it looks!

    Yep, Mavic makes them. It's how I told my mom to find Chris Horner in the pack. "Mom, Chris is the one that's always smiling and wearing yellow shoes!" (We were at a race over a year ago and she couldn't tell Chris and Levi apart... until I pointed out the yellow shoes.)

    Edvald Boasson Hagen of Sky and Marcus Burghardt of BMC also wear them. Seems like there is probably one rider from each team that wears them.

    The only other one I can think of is Tim Johnson, but he races for United Healthcare (and Cannondale-Cyclocross World) and clearly isn't in the TdF.

    Saxo Bank kit looks the sharpest. Just today I was trying to figure out how to get Sungard on my DH's behind!

    I also like Liquigas--I want a bike those colors!

    I hate the white bicycle shorts of HTC. Grown men in diapers. Not attractive.

    I like the Cervelo kit -- but the ones with more black. They are wearing a white/gray version of it in the Tour.
