The Lost Cyclist

I have never bought a book before but I purchased "The Lost Cyclist" yesterday at the Copake bicycle auction in Copake NY. The really cool thing about this book is I was able to meet the author David V. Herlihy and he was nice enough to sign my copy. The book is about one mans adventure around the world on a bicycle and how he just disappeared from life,society,family and friends. Sometimes you just gotta ride.

the Italian Stallion

Scored this pretty rare Atala Special Champion Del Mondo 12spd equipped with Campagnolo,Ofmega,Modolo,3TTT,Ambrosio and Miche goodies. What makes this rare is the Tullio steel tubing there is very little info online but it was believe to be the inhouse steel tubing for Atala,Basso,Ciocc and others. My personal opinion its comparable to Vittus or Tange tubing. I've always wanted an Italian bicycle and I love the color red so this one is a keeper.
