Those TCB Cyclocross Kits Look Awesome!

Photos by John Daniel Reiss

In the world of cyclocross team kits, you can go a few directions. First of which being the standard issue (and most common), three or four colored panels and a bunch of sponsor logos with a pixelated team graphic. Second, you can go just plain crazy. All-over animals, cupcakes, donuts, cats, pandas, whatever. The brighter the better, more is more, instead of less is more.

From the looks of the new TCB Cyclocross kit, they went the third route: classy, with just the right amount of logos and clearly inspired by Cali surf style of the 1980’s. Now, if they only all piled into a Datsun to get to the races. Ok, or a YOTA.

Manual for Speed: RFTD Space Panda Jersey

I want to call them crazy, but we already know that. Manual for Speed transcends crazy, like space pandas shooting lasers from their eyes… Kinda like these jerseys, for pre-order now, through November 2nd for a late December, early January delivery.

See more at Manual for Speed.

Manual for Speed Unveils the Space Panda Look Book and Kit
manualforspeed_rftdkit-15

Remember the Manual for Speed “Reach for the Dream” #SurpriseMe kit order that went up a while back? Well, the kits showed up to MFSHQ in Portland and have been shipped out to everyone that ordered one. Look, I know it appears that MFS are on drugs, but I know for certain neither of the conspirators even drink, so that’s not a possibility…

Maybe someone’s spiking their sparkling waters? I have no idea, but whatever the reason, these Space Panda kits are out of this world.

See the entire lookbook at Manual for Speed and no, you can’t order this kit. You missed out on all the pandaemonium.

Tenspeed Hero’s New Skinsuit
TSH_Skinsuit

Racing in a skinsuit is the best, except for all the exhalation photos that get posted on your Facebook. You know, the photo where it looks like you’ve got a giant beer gut? So, if you’re going to race in a skinsuit, why not at least race in one that looks good? Black is very slimming, don’t ya know.

Not guaranteed to bring about “thigh gap” in men and women, but at least guaranteed to look good.

In stock now, along with many other things at Tenspeed Hero.

Wow, just wow. Manual for Speed slays their new 2014 kit with, uh, gradients, duh!

“Manual for Speed and This Is Not Pete Morris met in the one & only place on Planet Earth suitable for showcasing our second-ever Team Kit offering: the Circus Circus in Las Vegas, Nevada. Why the Circus Circus? Well if its not obvious to you now, it will be by the time you’re halfway through this HAVS. Here’s a hint(s): Lights! Color! Action! And An Unfair Advantage! We needed a place that could deliver all that and more, and Circus Circus did just that…”

Pre-order one now at Manual for Speed!
