Kit Review: BMC

View it at Link is to an album of posed Alessandro Ballan pics. I thought it might be official BMC pics, and postable here, but on further review it looks like the work of a private photog, so go there.

Whaddya think? Not daring, but I do like it, and not just because Ballan is one of my five favorite riders. The watermark splotches break up the red field a bit, but just a bit, and otherwise the effect is pretty classic red-black. Big improvement from last year's kit, which I repeatedly likened to something from the bargain bin at Performance Bike. I know the Swiss are a tad reserved, but that was ridiculous. Big time this year though, with the last two World Champions in the fold, so they're stepping up.
