|Because I have been down to one bike (my Serotta) for the last month and a half, after having sold off two others in the past few months, and realizing (or perhaps justifying in my own mind) that I needed a trainer/rain bike after all, I fell victim to a moment of supreme weakness and jumped at a DeBernardi from the mid-80s. |
Columbus SLX steel, with Campy Athena, Mavic (including a classic 175 crank) and other assorted components. I couldn't resist. My size, roughly (top tube is a little short, but perfect for a trainer or four-weather bike). My workstand is already salivating at the thought of playing around with this puppy.
Oh yeah ... I plan to ride it, too. Steel is real, after all ... unless my next weak moment causes me to spring for a 61cm Litespeed frame I've been eyeing, in which case titanium is great, too.
|Nice taste! Oh, and welcome back to the riding world.||Tig|

|I hope you are all healed up by now, or close enough to ride. I think you've spent all of your injury points for a lifetime and should now be somewhat safe. If I were in your shoes (or casts) I wouldn't give it up either. I couldn't live a sane life without riding!|
|Been there, done that, and just bought a young Italian!||GeoCyclist|

|Nice looking ride! I dumped my Cannondale this summer and I just bought a 2003 DeRosa King this month. The bike arrived two weeks ago, but I'm working offshore and dying to get home! I'll be posting pictures soon!
|well, better than being in hospital||weiwentg|

|congrats on the recovery!!!!!!!!!! contemplating the acquisition of a new fleet is a sign of recovery (then again, it could also be a sign of withdrawal).|| |
