The Official Lance Armstrong wristbands are one of the most commonly worn bright bracelets that anyone from the mid-2000s could find lying around in their room. Big names in the industry such as John Kerry, Angelina Jolie, Robin Williams, Andre Agassi, and even Bono wore the bright wristband inscribed with the words, “LIVESTRONG”. Known for its durability, and famed for its cause, it symbolizes the maker of the wristband Lance himself when he was diagnosed with cancer and started the LiveStrong Foundation for providing support to cancer patients.
The silicone wristband was designed by Nike collaborating with a creative agency known as Weiden + Kennedy. Given what it stands for, the LiveStrong wristbands are there for you to support the fight against cancer alongside everyone. The LA wristbands generally come in two sizes, L and XL (8” inches in diameter). These wristbands generally go for relatively low rates and one can easily own a wristband for $1, going up to $6 depending on the type of wristband.
Lance Armstrong wristbands are not the only products sold by Lance in his career. Lance Armstrong’s collection of custom painted bikes have been designed to pay homage to classic Italian architecture. The bike’s saddle is a Selle San Marco Concor Lite, designed for comfort. The paint job on the bikes features die-cut decals applied over a solid base color. Irrespective of its design, the finished product is very pleasing to the eye. The frame actually consists of very complex and intricate curves in a limited space.
The bike has improved handling because it’s bolted on an SRAM Red group with 53/39T chainrings, and an 11-23T cassette. Equipped with gold-anodized alloy chainring bolts fitted into the crank, it also has Bontrager carbon-specific cork pads fitted to the brake calipers. A Force steel cage is spliced onto the Red front derailleur and a Shimano Dura-Ace 7801 chain stands in for the PC-1090 unit. The wheelset is a Bontrager Aeolus 5.0 tubular with the front and rear tires consisting of the Hutchinson tubular. It also has the Trek Incite 9i computer with the SRAM Professional system.
Lance Armstrong left his designation as Chairman of the Board of Directors in 2012 and is no longer connected with Livestrong. Lance’s dedication to serving others whose lives are irreversibly changed by malignant growth, as he might have been, is undeniable. Lance Armstrong was never just about the bicycle, and his exposing reverberate past the universe of cycling.
The tale of Armstrong is an anecdote about a con focused on the adaptation of industrialist hubris he offered to the world. He advertised the manner of speaking of character and difficult work, however, he never truly followed these exercises. He was another man in the long queue of American con artists. His ruin reminded the public that cheating is the least demanding approach to progress.
