Something in titanium, a custom Potts maybe? I would hang the latest Shimano of it too! I've had my fill of Crapnagolo just recently.

I know, Mr Edwards, lucky for you, yours is much to big for me, otherwise it may have gone missing one night. :lol:

At the risk of sounding like a smart arse, they ride really nicely but I can't say that they are any better/worse than a similarly well built quality tubed bike that fits - in the end for me ride quality, given the above, comes down to pride of ownership and the undefinable 'feeling'. And on those criteria the Zullo certainly scores as highly as any, perhaps higher as you don't see too many around.

I'll add another gratuitous photo and a bit of pantographing...

Interesting. In Holland we never had a tradition of frames with such level of decoration and also today it would be impossible to get people buying something such decorative.

Right on, that frameset is a little extravagant for me, too. I prefer his fillet-brazed work, and his new decals look much more modern. The paint-job is up to you and Joe Bell. :)
