New team jerseys. Coming soon.

Bike racing has a number of iconic jerseys. You'll see these somewhat frequently on club rides around the world. There's the Molteni jersey of Merckx. The La Vie Claire jersey of Hinault and LeMond.

But surprisingly, at least to the mighty Team Two Wheel, there's a jersey that's rarely seen on the roads, but arguably one of the most distinctive designs of all.

It was worn by stars with names like Millar, Gaul, Anderson, Pensec and Simpson, to name a few. This is the jersey of the Peugeot teams of the 70s and 80s.

While we are big believers of the need to earn a jersey before you wear a jersey (You won't see us wearing "replica" national team jerseys. Ever.), we're also students of cycling, and a nod to the past felt right.

So behold, the new Team Two Wheel jersey. We even sourced the original Peugeot and Michelin fonts and applied them to the TWT letterform. Nice. So black, white, and lots of negative space.

Let us know what you think. And if you're interested Two Wheel Transit will have very limited quantities for sale later this spring.

No word yet about whether this jersey means Mr. McSpadden, a.k.a "Scotter," will be climbing like Robert Millar by this May.

And enjoy some photos from back in the day.
