Rubbed the wrong way.

I'm a big fan of Garmin-Slipstream. I actually have a jersey (which fits a little bit better now that I've dropped 4 lbs in the last two weeks) and enjoy watching the team race.

I would welcome more ways to support the team. Heck I've even imagined making a huge blue and orange argyle flag to wave as I cheer them on a grand tour.

So when I got this email - I thought COOL!


Based on requests from fans around the world, we created this unique opportunity for you to support the Slipstream mission and enjoy the privileges and benefits that come with being a supporting team member. 2009 is the program's inaugural year, so these exclusive benefits will only grow as we collect the input of Argyle Club members like you!


But JV -- $995. Really? I know cycling can be a bit of a high-end sport, but $995 to join the Argyle Armada. Don't you think that's a bit much in the middle of a recession for a kit and some casual clothes?

Really for that kind of coin DZ should come and rub his nutz all over my chamois himself.
