So you live in the South of France, and you ride that elegant steed?

I am officially jealous.

The French come up with some great ideas, odd that they can't capitalize on them.

Yeah, that sounds familiar ...

BTW, I just watched the summary, and it was nice to see that at least one of your countrymen won.

A couple of Stellas

Here are a couple of Stellas I have owned.
I am not sure what model the white one is, came with Valentino deraileurs and my first encounter with Solida cranks.
I no longer have this one, I sold it to a very happy young woman from the Eugene area.
The other is a SX-73 I believe. Bought it as a framest from a local bike shop owner who found it in attic of the shop.

Another (I think) well done Tour de France this year. Some intrigue with crashes, disqualifications and very little time differences in the mountains among the top 3 riders. Just too bad there weren't more attacks on the yellow jersey during those stages. As such I had to make sure my French tribute corner was good to go - Gitane x 3, Vitus 979, Peugeot x 3 (hoping for 4 if I can get my 84 PSV back from my brother.)

I keep hearing how challenging a French bike can be, but then I keep looking at beauties like these and I stop caring!

Hey gpdave, that blue SX73 looks familiar. I bought one new for my wife in 1976 (I believe). Bicycling Magazine had a write up on Stellas and provided a little history of the brand. Our local bike shop sold them, but switched to Sekai and then to Trek when they first started out. I still have the leather Pryma saddle that came on the Stella, in like new condition, swapped out because my wife wanted a softer ride.

As you might know the Stella facility had a bad fire right about the time you purchased your wife's bike then went out of business.
If you ever want to part with that saddle let me know.

What the crank?!

Lovely bike. Can we see a few close up of that crank? It looks like the arms are bent.
