    A time long ago when bikes and riders were made of steel. A post-ride recovery consisted of a martini and a rare porterhouse.

    Interesting stuff.

    In 1963, the days of Jacques Anquetil, a college house mate came back from Italy with an Italian racing bike, Campagnolo equipped, tubbies on aluminum rims, that must have weighed 20-22#. He let me ride it up the long hill to the college, once. Amazingly responsive compared to the Sears 26" cruiser and old Raleigh 3 speed back home. Fell in love right then.

    Took another 20 years to realize the dream, now more laid back, but still going strong. Riding the old DeRosa frequently becomes Italian opera, love, pain, suffering, hunger, joy and despair, all wrapped into one.

    Thank you for posting.

    I arrived in the SF south Bay Area after the 60's but there were quite a few cyclists (relatively speaking) in Los Gatos & Cupertino in the late 70's. The Cupertino bike shop was always fun to visit.
