I was looking at a frame made by the company Asso (no, it isn't the clothing company) The headbadge looks familliar but I can't place it.
Any input would be appreciated.

The logo looks like the Quatro Assi logo. I don't know if it's the same though.

FWIW, "Quattro Assi" means Four Aces in I.T.

I've often wondered about that myself. Maybe it's because bike races are like card games, gambling on road conditions, the riders' states of fitness, how well the equipment is working, the weather, all the random events along the route. Also, riders play poker with each other, bluffing, devising strategies, just like in a card game.

My dream is to have a bike for each suit in the deck. Did Pinarello have a diamond shaped logo, or am I remembering wrong?

Good explanation, you're probably right. Not about the Pinarello though, at least not in this pic...

could it be a Basso?jaybird

I believe that Colnago uses an Ace of Clubs as its something to do with heraldry and the clubs is the symbol from the region in Italy - I seem to remember it having to do with Milan and his first race having been one there. I can't explain the DeRosa heart though.
