One of the best things about Eurobike is going round the main road hall - that's A1 in case you ever make it over there - perving at all the beautifully exotic and exotically priced bikes fromt the boutique Italian bike brands. The biggest Italian brands, Bianchi, Colnago, and and Pinarello arent' part of this little Italy but De Rosa always are - with the biggest stand like gatekeepers to the world of artisan built Italian bikes. Sadly this year there's weren't quite so many of those smaller Italian marques, but there were still some fantastic bikes to see . So Tony and Vecciojo popped over to A1 to admire, perv… and raise the odd quizzical eyebrow.
