    Have you considered that Calfee is not a mass produced bike, they are hand built. The Asian bikes are popped out in mass quantities. The Asian production methods have more to do with saving time...

    A Colnago is a great choice! I really like their bikes and would pick one over anything that comes from Asia. I will check out Holland cycles.

    It don't see it that way. Sometimes newer is not always better. I have tried some other bikes like the Specialized Roubix and the Volagi and they felt harsh compared to my Tetra. Yes Calfees are...

    I have a 10 year old Tetra that I will still be riding 20 years or more from now. Calfee doesn't use tubes because they are cheaper, Craig builds them this way because he feels that it providers a...

    What I said in my first post was, "The large majority of the area of CA is quite different from living in the Bay Area, LA, or SD." I didn't say living the Bay Area was different from LA and SD,...

    There is some rural land in SD but not as much as north of Sacramento. OC and SD are mostly conservative but LA is not.

    These places are no where near the Bay Area. I was asking how living in the Bay Area was different than living in LA and SD. I lived in So Cal for 56 years.

    I don't get your point. You mentioned places in Southern California and places in Northern California. I have been to every place you mentioned so I guess I do get out a lot. Other than there is...
