A couple of cool reference points for the Roland Della Santa legacy crossed my desk this past week or so. Both worth listening or watching. One is a podcast from the Outspoken Cyclist that has a great interview with Roland. DON'T MISS THE INTERVIEW! He touches on everything from frame building and materials (obviously) to making forks, personalities in his long history in the industry, and Frank Zappa.
The other is some vintage video footage from the Nevada City Classic that shows Roland powering up that infamous climb. As I'm in the midst of restoring a 1979 Della Santa this is a nice thing to listen to while tinkering in the shop.
For over 12 Years I wrote the Reno Rambler Blog covering everything from Bicycle Advocacy, Reno Politics, Popular Culture, and my experiences as a long-time cyclist.
