the wine producer Vini Fantini has left the team yellow fluo and now sponsors the (vinifantini)-Nippo-De Rosa team

former Vini Fantini team now is named Yellow Fluo and keeps on riding Cipollini bikes

interesting, so are you saying that Yellowfluo will be riding the cheaper Bond rather than the (nice but outrageously priced) rb1000 and rb800?

Androni were riding the cheaper Sempre Pro this year instead of the Oltre XR that Vacansoleil used. Give the top frames to PT teams and the second tier frames to PC, and thus show that pros can use those too. Good business strategy methinks.

Also, pro teams need a hell of a lot of bikes. I doubt they want to give out that many high end frames if they don't have to considering the monstrous margins on them.

That's rather poor form on the part of the coffee shop.
Disappointing.
