    Favorite bike brand... If forced to choose, I would say Giant because of their bikes giving good value for the dollars spent.

    I am actually pretty flexible, I currently own a 2003 Giant, a 1979 Schwinn, a 1989 Cannondale and a 1990ish Centurion. Listed in order purchased... The only one of those I bought new was the Giant.

    Favorite groupset... No opinion, other than I have experience with Shimano and vintage Suntour (mostly good in both cases). However, based on what I read around here, if I were to buy a new road group, I would probably look at the Shimano Tiagra or 105 lines based on value per dollar spent... Although the Campagnolo Ergo shifters (and of course the reputation of the product line) have me curious about their line of products as well.

    Favorite Team... Discovery Channel. I always tend to be a "home team" guy. Whether it is in baseball or cycling... or other.

    One point. You may want to classify responses between mountain and road, as the team, brand and groupsets differ between the two. I am a road guy.

    Favorite brand, no question that is Trek. Groupset is Shimano, and cycling team is Discovery Channel. I totally agree with the above, I vote for the home team as well;)

    My favourite brand is Cannondale (although I own a LeMond...which I love), my favourite groupset is Shimano (105 due to value aspect) and team is Team Discovery Channel......and since you didn't ask...my favourite rider is Tom Boonen.


    Cheers,

    Brian

    I personally ride an Italian Moser M76 - 05 model. Great bike. Ultegra 10 is the drive train. My favorite Pro Teams are: Discovery Channel (of course), Quick Step and Phonak

    Bianchis are definitely my favorite type of bike. They've got passion [​IMG]

    Campagnolo Chorus is a pretty awesome groupset.
    And the T-Mobile cycling team is great as well.

    Bike: Specialized S-Works, Tarmac (and Tarmac SL) or Roubaix. Not fussy really (now all I need is £5000).

    Groupset: Ultegra/105. Dura-Ace is just silly whilst these two component groups offer excellent shifting for more affordable (especially 105) prices.
    Pro Team: Not really sure. Any with a British rider on!
