Wow Bill. Very impressive! That Pinarello is stunning. I hope you're piling on the miles come spring.

I've got a very, very old steel frame Bottecchia that I've been thinking I need to upgrade but that is silly... if it was good enough for Ottavio ...

Got it......have fun on the pedal bikes! I spend more time on them now than on my motorcycles.

Cheers

When I first read this I thought you were saying you hit the 50,000 mile mark on the fixed bike. I was like ‘gross’. Then I realized it was 50 kilometers on a cold day. Good ride.

Are you droptarotter on Strava?

RB......sent you a PM and yes, 50K should have been written as 50km's, I only have about 13,000km's on my Fixed.

A quick "Thank You" to all who continue to breathe life into the thread I started so long ago. Still lurking here, keeping tabs, but no scoot in the foreseeable future.
