Now, I know everyone is wondering who'll be riding for "the Shack" next year..... but I can't help wondering about the team bus, with radioshack as the sponsor it should be a gadget freak's wet dream !

Anybody got any ideas on what they should fit to the bus ?

50" Plasmas.... ps3's.... wifi..... the list goes on and on.

can anybody think of a must have bus gadget for the shack to install ?

What about those electronics kits for kids so they can make am/fm radios or learn to send morse code? I wonder if they could get those tuned into their race radio frequency?

My vote is for something to help the old men get on and off the bus. It'll probably look something like this! :p

I don't know what kind of Radio Shack you guys have, but if they get their equipment from the Radio Shack near MY house they can get a broken metal detector for the beach, all the parts to build half of a working radio, a remote controlled car that moves slower than my pet turtle, and all the cell phone cases they need. All at wonderfully marked up prices! At least they don't have to wait in line for all this great team bus equipment, because my Radio Shack has no customers!

Yeah . . . my first thought of the RS team bus is if they want it full of RS bling(if that's possible) . . .they better have a repair guy handy 24/7 !

RS was/is considered the low end of quality for those who've used them over the years.

Hmmm... I wonder if you could buy the parts for an E-Bombat Radio Shack?

Use one of those near anybody using Di2 on their TT bike, and watch the fun begin :)

E-Bomb?? what about a remote control, especially in the mountains and he can't get out of a 53x11.
