I love what they can do with kites these days. Nice post.
A race bike in any era is a highly personal choice that at its "best" balances the requirements of fit, weight, handling, durability and cost tempered by the willingness to toss it and oneself down the pavement at considerable speed. ~Bandera

super cool. every summer there is a huge kite festival at the Berkeley Marina - lots of cool kites (and bikes as there is very limited car parking)- including some huge traditional japanese ones. but no cyclists in the sky yet!
