DeRosa devotion

Notices
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

Wow - quite the popular bike.

OK, so I needed a small towel and a drink. I am seriously considering to get a carbon De Rosa for the summer, but I am having a hard time finding online places that carry them. Any links???
