    the Dancelli is a very sweet bike/frame, happy birthday, and the DeRosa is pretty nice too. I bet you look good on the pink bikes.

    How can the color be protected by the sun's UV damage ? Won't it fade if it is left unprotected ?

    BBM's bike is gorgeous, and it's going to be a head turner...

    Me, too. Shhhhh, don't tell anyone....... Seriously - I think someone went a little overboard with the airbrush, and I'd delete them if I had my druthers. But, the flash seems to really make them stand out - they are much more subdued in person.

    Happy B-Day BBM. You are softy when it comes to red bikes. I'm glad you never took a trip down to Marina to Dr.D's and kidnapped Sporty!

    Great looking bike! If I move to Palo Alto, can I see it in person?
