Why is it that your team riders are using so few of your products?

Can you point out what parts each rider is using? All I can see used is your stem.

To me, what defines Straitline is your levers, and pedals. They, in my opinion, are what makes you stand out from the rest and gives you your uniqueness.

Now, you don't make levers for the Formula The One brakes the team riders are using. And two of the riders are using devil pedals, whilst the other riders pedals are hidden behind a wheel in the picture (are they devil pedals? Or are they your pedals?).

I can't even tell if the stems they are using are yours, in the one photo you can see that the stem is super short, but to someone not looking out for that, they're not going to see it.

So finally, what exactly are you getting out of the sponsorship? Your name on a shirt and poster? So far there's no real advertisement for you from this team. And one thing that makes me think twice about how good a companies product is, is when the team they sponsor doesn't even use their products.

Sorry if this seems harsh, it just seems silly to me if the team you sponsor isn't giving back to you, when you're giving to them.

By the way, are there any plans on levers for the new Shimano's?
