Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Your dream sponsor (spin-off thread)

So the other thread about team kit got me thinking, what would my dream sponsor be, a sponsor you'd really be stoked on supporting be.

For me either:

Team Full Sail/Trader Joes

Team Peet's Coffee

Team Apple!

I'd say Apple would be a great sponsor. Heck, they've got the money - I don't understand why they don't sponsor a team.

Not sure about the all-white kits though.

Red Robin (burger place). They have a logo that is jersey-worthy I think.

Playboy.

All black kit with white bunnies. The soigneurs, massage therapists and mechanics would of course be both skilled and attractive. Its not all about winning with my team.

Not a fan of that industry BUT i think the kits might be the best in the peloton. OHHH Team Famima! If anyone of you have never been to a Famima its a high end gourmet asian 7-11 so tight, they're colors are this great green white and black.

Google/Apple would be awsome.....OOHH I bet you it would end up being Nike+/Apple. It could be white jerseys with a bit apple on the chest and the butt and it fades from white into that drilled stainless steel that you see on the Macpro!

I don't think Kodak could afford it lol, I mean they weren't doing so hot it seemed when I was working at a camera store in 07' every month it seemed like they discontinued a film; and they're digitals were not so great. I could be wrong though. Team Ilford!

I use a Kodak EasyShare Z712IS. It's good.

Yes, they have been shaky - my uncle worked for them. :/

Maybe Team Nikon or Olympus then. But definitely Team Firefox!

Team Nikon would be great, I can tell you from experience they are one of the most awsome companies, they're employees really enjoy working for them and they're very positive. Companies like Kodak and Cannon are kinda lame to deal with, we used to compare the Nikon rep and the canon rep to Mac and PC from the Apple comericals, the Canon rep being PC haha. I think Nikon Apple would be a cool team.

I hate to say it because I cannot stand their product but Starbucks jersey's look great, I saw a photo of the owner riding a Pinarello Prince in a full starbucks kit on the cover of some random business mag.
