Bicycle Coalition of America?

Anyone ever heard of this "brand"? I've come across one with a mix of parts. Columbus Aelle tubing. Nice lugs. It's interesting, but not my size.

11 miles today on the DeRosa. First ride since late fall. I unscrewed the valve stem from the front tire (twice) while airing up. Finally convinced it to stay put! Man, am I out of shape. :lol:
