Srsly. Forget the shop discounts and/or other crap. Pick based on the riders. You either like riding or racing with them or you don't. Don't pick based on really liking 1 or 2 guys either - because as soon as you do those guys will leave the team and you'll be stuck.
Seriously. Joinging a team because they have cool sponsors or a cool kit is dumb (unless the kit is absolutely hideous). I was talking to a local kid about joining my current team because his current wa, for the most part, folding. He said it was down to two teams; one which I was on at one point, and mine. He was trying to get to see what we could give him in terms of deals and free stuff, so I told him to go join the other team. I really don't want to be on the same team (albeit 3,000 miles away) as some kid who's got no results and trying to steal equipment from people who work 3x as hard as him.
