Ride a Torelli?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Ride a Torelli?

Looking at new frames, thinking steel / carbon or maybe Ti / carbon mix. Saw the Torelli web site, and their Express Carbon frame sounds interesting. None here where I live, but LBS can order one in. Any one ever ride one? If so, interested in hearing what you think of it. Rode a Serotta Fierte Ti, and was very impressed, but its a priceier (sp??).

Appreciate any thoughts

Take it easy

I have a Mondonico Futura Legerro which I love. Totally smooth and telepathic ride. Handles like a dream. Highly recommended. I suggest you find a shop that sells Torelli's/Mondonico's and check them out. Truly works of art. I've had lots of compliments on mine.

they are based out of camarillo CA, my grandma lives down there and any bike shop you go into has at least a dozen on the floor. I haven't ridden one though.

My girlfriend has a Torelli. It's sweet. She makes lots of new boyfriends whenever she rides it.
