Interesting, SRAM is not fashionable anymore?!
Very interesting that on those 18 teams, only frame repeats were Specialized (3 teams) and Pinarello (2 teams). So that would be 15 separate frame builders, or should I say 15 different labels on them...."To be free and to live a free life - that is the most beautiful thing there is."
Most likely, SRAM just doesn't want to fork out all that money to sponsor Pro Tour teams.
The Cost of promoting Pro tour teams might be a worth it; most of the shops around Albuquerque are selling DI-2 groups.
I would imagine SRAM hit sponsorships hard and heavy in the past to established themselves in the market. They now have such a huge OEM presence and probably sell enough aftermarket that they don't need to be so aggressive with marketing/sponsorships.
Just a guess.
The "mixed" components for Vacansoleil appear to be Campagnolo and FSA. Bianchi seems to have a "thing" for FSA. Can't tell from this picture if the brakes are Campy or FSA. KMC is a co-sponsor, so we know what brand of chain they're using.
I don't know about that KW. We stock very few Sram bikes, you might even say we avoid them.Jam Econo
When did Campagnolo sponsored teams become so few?
Cb2...what lines are you carrying? Just curious.
Primarily Specialized, Cannondale, and Pinarello for the road. We also do Kona, Santa Cruz, and IF.
CB2...kind of surprising that you don't do much SRAM with Specialized and Cannondale...seems like they use a lot of SRAM. Is it just because you avoid stocking them or do those companies use much less SRAM than I imagined?
CB2 - I like your lineup. Good coverage of pricepoints. IF is funny, but has a cult-like following (Esp. w/MTB). Glad to see you have IF rather than Seven.
Of course, Moots would fit in there nicely as well.

It's not about the bike...ask Andy.The wise man said follow me...and he walked behind.
KW- C-dale and Spec probably spec about 15-20% Sram across the whole line-up. The owners of my shop choose not to spec very many Sram bikes because they've haven't had as positive an experience with it as Shimano (pretty PC how I put that). Sram's customer service is superb, but it becomes a nuisance having to repeated ask for it.
The most Sram we see is on Kona CX bikes.
