… and of course, there is accompanying photography to go along with it. See what they’ve put on discount and the rad photos at Tenspeed Hero!

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.

Tokyo Fixed’s kits are always so nicely balanced with patterns and colors. For autumn this year, they designed some new ones and re-issued some classics in new colors. Check them out at Tokyo Fixed. Hey Jess!
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.
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.
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.
In stock now, along with many other things at Tenspeed Hero.

Never one to leave the ladies out of their kit designs, Cadence just stocked their Pro Motion Women’s kit. Head over to Cadence for more! These really do look great.
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…”
