For me, I had no inkling that Sue shared her name with a place in Italy. To the best of my knowledge there is no famous Sheila Novara in cycling. There is a Sheila Young (now Sheila Young-Ochowicz).

As far as Italian giving class, I once asked a local cat II why he wasn't riding his (major Italian maker's name withheld), and he replied "I broke that Italian piece of s***."

Yeah sorry admittedly I screwed that up as I was working while typing my reply and mixed up Sheila Young Ochowicz with Sue Novara Reber. I am running off nearly 40 year old memories here. If you understand the mission statement of REI then you would be much clearer on why Dave chose the names he did from Italy. There is no way he would have locked into a licensing agreement for the use of the Novara name from a relatively unknown female racer. I am proud of the work we did with the Novara brand building top spec bikes for very competitive prices that soon were outselling brand name models we had from Trek, Specialized and Diamondback etc along with providing a dividend check back on the bike price at the end of the year.

Large Frame 60 Cm, great components for that era. 6061T alloy frame. Rides good, but the tires are scary old.

Weren't these made by Cannondale for L.L. Bean? If so, not bad price for a frame and parts.

Great vintage bike. Just needs wheels seat. Post on the seat. Friend gave it to me and I never got around to using. It was just hung in my garage. May need a minor tuneup. Overall and super clean shape.  Porch pick up in Holly Springs.

I suspect that outside of maybe Greg LeMond or the disgraced Lance, just about any racer's name would draw blank stares from Joe average even now, but especially back when the Novara brand was launched.

Agree, had one in that exact color and gave it to my son who still rides it and uses it as a kid hauler.
I think I remember reading they were very similar to the Cannondale ST's just dressed in slightly different components.
