Who's using what?

Is anyone aware of a site that brings together a list of the equipment used by pro riders? I'm looking at everything from saddles to stems, pedals to shoes. I know there's a lot of general information out there like Jan rides a Selle Turbomatic... but I'm just interested if anyone's put it all together.

I think it's kind of cool when you're putting together a bike or upgrading parts to see what equipment is being used beyond just the info about Dura-Ace and Record.

Anyone else interested in who's using what?

I want to know what kind of bars Haselbacher from Gerolsteiner was using, which he said "broke". What kind of dumbass blames his crashing on his sponsor's equipment failure? DO YOU WANT A JOB NEXT YEAR DUMBASS?

I doubt you'll find a website for all teams, but if you go to individual team homepages, they generally list all sponsors. Try the cyclingews teams database.

Individual riders sometimes have personal contracts with a partciular item. Shoes are a good example, as George Hincapie uses Carnacs. Lance has a personal contract with PowerBar, but USPS team has a deal with Clif Bar. Tlyer Hamilton's deal with Speedplay went with him to Phonak. Even components are split on one team, Saeco uses Campy components except for the bottom bracket, which is Cannondale's propitery BB.

Ive got a photo of Mario running a pair of Lightweights Carbon Wheels, with lame looking Mavic Stickers applied to them.

USPS is sponsored by Hutchinson Tire, but was racing on Vittoria Tubulars that had been de-badged, and sometimes they are re-badged.

Zipp followed Tyler to Phonak as well.
