  • 2011 Wilier Cento Uno Superleggera AleJet in Photos

    I don’t really know why this paint job is so sexy on this Wilier, but it certainly sets the bike apart from many others. The Wilier Cento Uno Superleggera is already a light bike, but this paint just makes it look very fast. In this post, you’ll find all of the photos of the Wilier […]

  • Taipei International Cycle Show Part 1

Since then, all of Cannondale’s production has shifted to Asia. All Colnagos except the EPS are made in Taiwan. All Pinarellos are made in Taiwan. All Kuotas are made in […]
