For your information I wear a LiveStrong bracelet myself. I've also contributed thousands of dollars to LAF. I've spoken with pro cyclists who feel the same as I do on this subject, but it's not something I'm willing to go to war over. It's simply an opinion and I have no problem if you or others disagree. I don't understand why my opinion is so threatening to you. Remember that this discussion started with someone's suggestion that pro's don't like bracelets. All I thought I was doing was suggesting a reason that I agreed with the actions of those pros who aren't wearing bracelets. Instead I've come under attack by people who can't accept that there are different ways of looking at this. That's my last post on this thread because we're clearly in an unproductive spiral.
