    Same here. Right now the most appealing thing about the future is finding out what the new Sky kit looks like.

    Finding out ASAP is my New Years Resolution.
  • well i think they missed a trick, I would have switched the website go live at midnight. I do have a life. Mainly dominated by cycling though it would seem.

  • I can hear the laughter from a luxury Swiss Ski Lodge where the Rapha bigwigs are drinking champagne and scoffing caviar from the navals of 12 virgins......"let's keep the plebs in suspense for a bit longer ha ha ha".

    I've asked Wiggo to pop round later for a fashion parade. I'll post photos if he appears :-)

    Pricing will be an issue for me if they pitch into Assos territory. Rapha don't have the heritage or that reputation yet.

    Was looking forward to it today. Checked the Rapha website and Sky. They could have put launch date on the Rapha website! Building the hype I suppose.....I notice that their shop in London is closed until Feb.

    I can't believe prices will be any different to the Rapha Condor or focus team kits so think we can expect a lot less sky kit on the roads.

    Hmm - posting on a cycling forum at 00.20 or 01.20 (depending on location) on New Year's Eve/Morn about the lack of publishing of a team cycle kit may indicate otherwise.... :wink:

    You'll be sick of the sight of it by the end of the year anyway...

    Glad I've seen that, couldn't really start the new year without a look at the new sky kit. Phew :-)

    I definitely like it better there than in the studio shots. Glad to see the continuation of the stripe on the back, and the name on the side.

    The clothing I have is very comfortable and does what you expect from performance clothing. It also looks very nice too.... In comparison to my altura and garneu stuff it's way better.

    posting at that time in the morning is fine for me I had to stay up to collect the daughter from her boyfriends so passed the time on here, seeing as i dont drink, did not have much else to do at the time, but not that i have to justify myself to you. I also went out this mornign and cycled from Inca over the mountains to Lluc, then down to Soller, then out over col soller and back along the island in lovely weather. What have you done with your life today, im very happy with mine.
    Back on topic i think the kit looks censored . I was only interested how it looks, having never owned a sky jersey nor ever would I, I was only interested in it due to the hype out there. As for a personal attack on getting a life, I bet I have a far better quality of life that you do, (and you dont see much of my life on here)

    I had to do a 5 mile detour this morning because the road was closed due to flooding. I want Jeff's life.

    Easy fella - I think you may have missed the :wink: emoticon that normally indicates that someone is not being entirely serious in their post... So no personal attack intended!

    What have I done with my life today? Well, I don't have to justify myself to you(!) - but I rode over Cornish hills with a howling south-westerly including both sides of Millook and had a lovely day, although the weather may have not been up to med standards, but thankfully it wasn't raining. Mind you, I get to cycle in Mallorca - our base is in Andratx rather than Inca.... :lol: Oh and my daughter is too young to have a boyfriend (being 1 1/2), but I've got to spend a lot of time with her today.

    Happy new year!

    I do like the British National champs jersey but it's the National Champs jersey. A variation on that would be worth a wear

    They're all the rage these days... :-) As above the kit looks better in the photo there than the promo shots.

    Most likly to be made by MOA too, just unable to use to designs and materials that Adidas did.

    Choice of Rapha most liklely down to the closeness of Fran miller to Dave b and rapha than for any performance reason.
