After the George Hincapie whine fest, many people posted they are done buying Garmin products. Now that the results are in and all is said and done (almost), what are your buying habits going to be like as a result of the Tour and its soap opera of events? Here are mine:

1. Radio Shack - For the last 20 years, the only reason I ever went into Radio Shack was for obscure cables. That ends today! Because of Lance, I am going to Radio Shack today to buy two obscure cables, a minature bulb and a crank powered weather radio.

2. Garmin - Who the hell needs it. I have Radio Shack now! Va va va allez Radio Shack.

3. Columbia - I am going to completely ban Columbia products for the rest of my life. George whines too much and besides, I HAVE RADIO SHACK!!!! I hear RS intends to get into the flannel market. Besides, I have my obscure cable collection to keep me warm.

4. Quick Step - Is this a flooring company? Who cares! Because of Tom Boonen's clown fest of a tour, I am banning all things belgian except waffles. Oh wait, I think I have been doing that unintentionally for the last 30 years.

5. Saxo Bank - Love the Schlecks from LOOXENBEEEERG!!! All my banking needs will be done on-line with Saxo Bank.

I've heard Johnathon Vaughters is coming out with his "signature" line of douchebags.

Finally a great TDF post!!. For a moment in honor of the tour I considered upgrading one of my old steel bikes from 9 spd to 10 spd, but.....nah............

Funny thread...

The TDF has caused me to buy -
2 tubes,
1 patch kit
1 tire-iron set

and this morning I got back on my bike for the first time in like 3 or 4 years... :eek: . I've been doing spinning, but it is just not the same... :(

I ordered a 11-28 cassette so I can go hill climbing. I probably should have ordered a Honda.

The whistling Prius commercial that ran every break here in Canada was driving me insane.
That's interesting...I didn't spot a single Prius commercial here in US .
Did see a ton of Cadillac commercials though.

One thing I won't buy is the new Giro Prolight helmet.
It looks kind of boring and old, IMO.

LOL, awesome post!

I have now ridden 5 days straight, so I need new Beljum budder chamois creme, and I ate at Chipotle last night, (not because of, "Wiggo")

on another post, I said I would go to Radio Shack, but I lied.

Great post
