Exclamation Lance's latest paint job

Okay, it's time to pass verdict on Lance Armstrong's Giro d'Italia paint scheme. Who loves it and who loathes it?

Personally, I get the idea behind it and like that he's mixing it up a little (as one of the few riders allowed such extreme variations), but this scheme just isn't doing it for me.
Cheers
Greg Johnson

Where is the option for those of us who are so sick of round the clock Armstrong coverage that we do not even want to hear about such a ridiculously stupid thing? What is next? Coverage of his hairstyle?

BroDeal, I would have thought you'd already started or participated in enough threads along those lines to know where to do to share such thoughts.

They should have put the $ into the rear derailleur(that broke on that stage).

Default Omg!!!

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear...

What were they thinking...
It'll turn a few heads... and no doubt a few stomachs too

I'm sure it's finished beautifully, however thats still no excuse!
Garish, gruesome, repugnant, disgusting, nauseating, repulsive... get my drift?

Please stop...
