American bikes

Despite my love of Italian things, I've got a bit of a crush on American bikes. I've got an old Specialized Allez Epic (in fact, manufactured by Giant in Taiwan, but that's another matter) and the 2004 S-Works E5 Road frame is gorgeous.

I've also got a bit of a thing for those fat-tubed Cannondales. In fact, seeing one on the front of Cycling Plus (issue 13 ?) was one of the things that got me back interested in cycling as a grown up.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love a Cinelli or a Colnago but they are flaming expensive. I figure an American frame with Campag on is the way to go.
