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

Gaulzetti Corsa Build

Frameset just showed up today, should be built up by this evening.
Teaser pic:

Its much more fluo than banana yellow, but crappy lighting and iPhone camera don't show it that well.

The pics definitely doesn't show how bright this frameset really is. Always great to see a frameset that stands out from everyone else on the road.

Once I get it built up and outside, I'll get some better pics. 51x54 for anyone who was wondering.
