|Beautiful bike. Why is everyone else getting new bikes and not me!!!!! ohhh yeah, I have to pay for this house!!!!!!!
Any shots of the "after" photo (of the bike after the first race)????

|Took me months to talk my wife round to the idea, be patient.
The frame was only £1070 from Parker International, (maybe $1700).
Actually I HAVEN'T wrecked it yet, but I'm riding like a granny, terrified of dropping it, scratching the underside of the pedal when I clip in.....at least I've christened it with plenty of sweat.
Off to Provence for 3 weeks in July/August, should get some real good miles in & hope to race out there too, hey Philippe, where are you I need some contacts :)
More pics in the gallery soon.

|I bought a Pinarello OPERA (w/Record 10, neutrons, etc.) for my 40th and never looked back! Enjoy! Nice to see no triple!|

|I nearly went Pinarello, but in the UK a De Rosa is even rarer & I love the paintjobs on De Rosas.
What's a triple?!? That would be sacrilege, this is a race bike not a tourer ;)
