Hi from El Dorado Hills, Ca

I am a casual cyclist and I don't ride as much since it's become fairly dangerous navigating through
the traffic of Norcal. After joining the forum, however, my enthusiasm has returned and I got by bikes
out of storage.

My interests in cycling go way back, and in fact, my first "high-end" bike I purchased was a 1973 De Rosa
from Talbot's while I was still in school. As I recall, Talbot's was the only distributor of De Rosa Bikes in the USA at that time. The bike is all original except for the wheels, bar and stem. It's not for sale, due
to sentimental reasons, but the reason I'm bringing it up is that I've decided to search for an original 3TTT
pantographed stem. If anyone has one for sale, let me Know.

Hi RockMedder, check out the Classic & Vintage forum, specifically the ISP/WTB sticky.

And, if we could see photos of the De Rosa, that would be lovely!

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !
