Bikes: too many bikes from 1967 10s (5x2)Frejus to a Sumitomo Ti/Chorus aluminum 10s (10x2), plus one non-susp mtn bike I use as my commuter
Possibly, at the GT Pro level, otherwise only for the vendors involved.
Team income comes from advertizing. Good ad revenue depends on having a winning team, but those riders cost more. If you do cobble together a good team, ad revenue can pay all the expenses, leaving you an income comparable to what a management fee would be. In many cases, the teams paid staff, especially the saleried general manager make more than the owner.
If you want to make money with a pro team, be a high salaried employee, not an owner.
