Right then, we've got a truck load, literally, of bikes from this team we sponsored last year that we don't like to talk about, but as things are a bit tight right now we can't afford to respray them so if we could come up with a team strip that's kind of mostly white and yellow to match that would be great, and to keep design costs down my cousin does art...

Jo Burt has spent the majority of his life riding bikes, drawing bikes and writing about bikes. When he's not scribbling pictures for the whole gamut of cycling media he writes words about them for road.cc and when he's not doing either of those he's pedaling. Then in whatever spare minutes there are in between he's agonizing over getting his socks, cycling cap and bar-tape to coordinate just so. And is quietly disappointed that yours don't He rides and races road bikes a bit, cyclo-cross bikes a lot and mountainbikes a fair bit too. Would rather be up a mountain.

Yes, that is one ugly kit, even worse than the rubbish plaid effort from Garmin Chippotle (if you're going to do plaid do it properly - like this lot), sorry I digress… anyway the new Columbia kit looks like a skeleton wearing a tabard to me. Even Saunier Duvall managed to come up with a better yellow outfit than that…

Maybe that's the price Columbia are willing to pay for a rigorous drugs-free policy, they obviously don't even let the creatives have the necessary mind-expanding substances so vital to the job of designing cycling team kit. The bloke doing the Columbia kit was probably having some bad trip acid flashback, or whatever you get when you suddenly come off the hallucinogens unexpectedly.
