Revolutionary Venom Line Being Developed by Specialized

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Look at the bottom of the page and spell Loof Lirpa backwards.

The "cricket" on the bottom is a Bianchi though.

The cricket is actually an interesting design. It may not actually be areodynamic as it looks though, it looks heavy in the front. It wouldn't be that hard to build one of these (out of fibreglass atleast). I wouldn't ride it too fast though...
