Been resisting the urge with Colnago for years because of the poncy paintwork.... And then they ruined the Master completely with carbon chainstays. At last they've see sense!! That is a classic...
But owning a Gios, a Wilier, a Rossin, a De Rosa and an Alan already, and probably at some point being forced to own a Pinarello (the perils of working for a distributor), it's not so hard to resist....
And that De Rosa... it's having an identity crisis IMHO..... Mixing C-Record and 9-speed Record Titanium, with carbon and a-head.... It's a crime and shouldn't be allowed...
