Thu Aug 21, 2014 7:00 PM - General Meeting Tantalizing new bikes and scrumptious snacks.

General Meeting -We are trying something different. We are bringing in a lite dinner and need to have some indication of how many will be attending so we have enough food. We need our members to help us out in order to make this a successful experiment. Sign up here. You don't need to sign up to attend the meeting, just to partake of the lite dinner.

The Italian Job

Come see two lesser known high end bicycle and component manufactures. LEGEND by Bertoletti are fully custom handmade bicycles manufactured in Northern Italy by Marco Bertoletti, who has been building frames since the 1980s. Marco continues to make a range of frames for pro peleton riders who cannot get the performance they need from Made in Taiwan geometries. The bikes are known for their high performance and beautiful finishes, particularly in carbon and titanium. Miche (FAC Michelin) is older than Campagnolo and has recently extended its range of high performance Made in Italy components. The brand focuses on drive trains and wheels for road, track and mountain bikes. Ian Jackson of Tartanian (U.S. Distributor) of these brands will be showcasing these bikes and components at our meeting.

See you there!!
