That's an 'Engineer' joke!
Edit: in fact, your collection of bicycles is quite elite. As are more than a few others.
Wish mine had 1 1/8' headset or the newer tapered.
Stiff enough for ya?
The elitists are out.
"RS is the only one collectible"
"...an 80s uberfred DeRosa"
"...you can't just buy a prominent team members Motorola Merckx....
Biased? I mean, in any way?
Poll closed - only 40 votes?
My DeRosa Pro would be hard to improve upon - for me, anyway.

Still not as sexy as really nice paint w/ clearcoat on steel.
Calfee made bikes from his 'CarbonFrames' era for Lemond. They were ridden in at least one TdF.
Hoping my millennial Calfee (2000), which is a regular rider, will become a classic.
Craig has updated his products/offered new when he saw an opportunity to innovate. And...
The '72 from CR has no top tube cable guides, how about your '73?
Seatstay caps on '72 not like original posters.
if the fit is poor and you part it out. Put me in line for the stem; lightweight Modolo stem (fits nicely on a smaller than 60cm frame) or a black DeRosa panto seatpost in trade, or cash, or some...
These bikes deserve all the above praise. Most exquisite. Did I miss size? 59 - 60cm?
As to the saddle choice, I will agree with blue suede for pics and as a show bike? If the bike sees 50...
The bottom line is safety. If it is truly suspicious, file a complaint (there may be others) with police and avoid the area for a period of time. Maybe you save someone else a problem/tragedy. ...
150 mi, 10k ft. vertical = beyond my ability even with a good, long build-up. But have fun & be safe.
When I ride in that area there must be time for stops - photos only; of course.:rolleyes:...
Sorry I missed it. Thanks for the photos.
(the new snow in the mts was irresistible).
I learned at an early age, I prefer these types of books. Run Dog Run
By far the most important thing for a solo cyclist is NOT to schedule the ride during peak vacation season or to include a holiday weekend. The traffic is watching the scenery, they are not watching...
Trees - I like trees
PNW pics must include an 'old growth' shot.
Mt Rainier NP - Carbon River entrance
Maybe this year a pic with the DeRosa.
It's better to ride from SF to LA. Have made most of the journey 3 times. I made 2 of those trips on an '84 Centurian, no problems.
An excellent ride is Enumclaw to Buckley to Wilkeson to Carbonado to the Carbon River entrance of Rainer NP.
But I bet the book stays with recommendations closer to Puget Sound cities, not...
Merlin Extralight had wishbone seatstays for a few years and was a pretty high-end frame (to say the least).
I had a need for those nice Simplex shifters a few years back
And I'll 2nd the nice ride of mid-level Peugeots. My experience was an '84 with Carbolite 103.
My only ti frame, so I have no real basis of comparison.
You have to share some of the bakeries.
Local 'inquiring minds want to know'.
Edit: 20 years in biz (if they are still there) stands on it's own.
Very nice Pinarello, certainly highlighted in red (the fastest shade of red, too).
The beauty of a 'rider' is in it's usefulness, so if the 105 performs well use it.
