Terrible Pshop job..... I'm picturing the whole squad covered in Lance's visage.
A circuit/electronic themed kit could be pretty cool if done right. No Trons, let's not even go there.

some of you guys are dating yourselves.

I had to go there the other day for N batteries and there was a guy there who had been working at RS for 25 years. I doubt I could have stumped him, even on something like a selenium rectifier.

Contracts for riders don't start until January 1, 2010. They have until then to come up with a design. None of the signed riders can wear anything but their current team garb until then. Therefore having a team kit is pointless; not to mention what would happen if another sponsor is coming on board.

You got a rare one.

Their "electrical components" foundation has been squeezed into a couple small drawers in the back, and you're generally not gonna get answers to questions about them.

I bet if you asked 100 Radio Shack employees, 5 of them could tell you what a rectifier was.

Yeah, I went there looking for some little 6V mini-lamps and a terminal strip. I had the items written on a page with sku's. The dude at the mall Radio Shack, which was mostly cell phones (I realized later that was all they had) looks at it and asks the guy next to him if they have "six vee" minilamps. To which I rolled my eyes but hoped he was just being unconventional. Then the other guy turned to me and asked me if the number or the letter mattered....

I said thank you and left.

They'll have some sort of team roll-out event in midwinter with lots of flash bang and glam. The kits will be first shown there or shortly before, I'd imagine.

They don't even have the full roster sorted out, last I was aware.

You have to provide the secret password, then you go into the back and get one.

Cool. You can also get it to see a "221177" with a few "blobs" floating in front.
