Ridley's "dangerous" Curves!

Notices
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

Ridley's "dangerous" Curves!

Has anybody ridden this top of the line model in the DE ROSA line: TANGO

Are those curves supposed to make your ride smoother?!

Wins a prize for novelty!

Wow!

No. You see, De Rosa pre-melts thier carbon frames in the sun, so you don't have to worry about it.

that's the Peter Max, Haight Ashbury Memorial LSD model,
they confused Long Slow Distance with d-lysergic acid diethylamide

the next model down in the line is the Shroom same idea only executed in an
organic mode.
