The owner of my pro shop is a racer, mechanic, and sponsor of a team and many rides and events. One of the regular events this year will be a Sunday retro ride, and not a ride just for 70's Colnagos and Bianchi's. Actually my 1885 mod. Bianchi will qualify to participate. Why?...because the retro ride is based on frame materials rather than age, and this is the era of Carbon fiber/resin frames.
And yes, steel is still real, and many beautiful frames are made of steel. However, no one races on steel, titanium, or even aluminum anymore.
The shop owner, Mark Brone, has put together a Pinarello for the retro ride. Indurain rode steel Pinarellos during his five Tour wins. I'm looking forward to seeing what the other riders show up on.
I think it's a cool idea, right?
