So in the weird way that the bike world works, the new and extra awesome B29 Team kits showed up on my doorstep, 1 day before I hoped they would. I would have to say that I am flabbergasted, as the time from the sample approval to delivery was a spot on 3 weeks. Wow.
Facefriends of B29 got a sneak peak of the new leotards, but the pictures were very poor quality, about what one might expect from a 7 year old using an iPhone. After an afternoon of sorting through the box, checking everything in, and pulling stuff aside for the team, I got a chance to model the emperor’s new clothes.
First off, I’d like to say that I’m dead sexy in these things. Second of all, hats off to Mandy for making them happen again this year. While basic, they look fast, and better yet, they came within a time frame that was promised, not 2 months later. This means, you will definitely see these kits at SSAP.
More of them than you think too!
The team got short sleeve jerseys, bibs for the men, shorts for the women, and there were a few windbreaker/podium jackets, and some arm warmers.
Sadly, there are none left over for civilians. These garments were produced by Panache, based out of Boulder CO, and they were not cheap. These are full on, top of the line performance cycling costumes that come with a hefty price tag. I can’t wait to wear mine this weekend, because just hanging out in the shop, I feel 15-20% faster.
We might look into a cheaper, less “race” cut for aftermarket sales if the interest is there, but for now, look for us out on the trail.
Have a great weekend everyone, SSAP report to follow on Monday!
