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.
