Me!

I got 10, and spread them out to my cycing friends. I also gave one to my mom who is a cancer survivor. I can't think of a better way to spend $10.

Yeah, you can buy them one at a time. I found mine at the local bike shop, right near the cash register.

it was good to see Bobke sportin one on OLN, of course Kirsten asked about it to give it a plug. I'm going to buy some more to use as party favors for a TDF kickoff party.

Mine never comes off. Everyone in the building I work at wears one. My girlfriend wears one. I've seen some movie stars sporting one. I think Kobe had one on!

I'm waiting for my batch of 10. I think the most famous athlete who is wearing one is Thierry Henry.

-Got ours here, the remainder went to people at work, most of whom don't even ride. I guess that big billboard on 34th St. made an impression.

Yep, got one on. Lots of people ask what it is. "Uh, I'm a personal friend of Lance's...he sent it to me."

if you have any footlocker stores in your area they are carrying them as well. men's footlocker for mens size lady footlocker for womens and kids for kids makes sense huh? buy 1, buy 10, buy 100 wear it with pride. if you have the extra 10 bucks pass some around. i personally have never seen so many people that i know get so excited over so little. people were extatic to recive the little yellow bands cyclist or not. its all for a great cause everylittle bit helps.

I bought ten the first day that they came out. I have given them all out to my friends. You would be amazed at how excited people are to wear them. And the money is going to a good cause. If you can be the one to buy ten then buy ten and support the cause.

Been wearing them ever since they came out.
Every time someone asks me what it is (and you'd be surprized
how few people do) I give them the one I'm wearing.
(I bought alot of them).
