Armstrong is part owner of Honey Stinger (same for SRAM and many other investments) so I guess they will just take off his face from the product.Bosco10 said:Honey Stinger, Giro Helmets, FRS Sports Drinks and RadioShack are no longer in with Lance either.

krebs303 said:SRAM has announced that Armstrong no longer owns shares in the company. Armstrong first invested in SRAM roughly contemporaneous with that company's circa-$500 million infusion from Lehman Brothers.

At present, says the survey, Armstrong's ranking as someone consumers aspire to be like is on a level with Ivanka Trump; his trustworthiness is on par with Hugh Grant; his endorsement potential is comparable to Fred Willard; and his influence is at about the same level as Khloe Kardashian.
