As I recall, you were a fan of American Flyers back in 1985. Remember Bobby? He was the dog that we would ride sprints with, an idea we picked up from the movie.
That was the best part of that movie, and yeah…I remember Bobby. He was a pitbull, right? A real sonofabitch.
I definitely remember the time he ran between your wheels to get run over by the rear one. That only slowed him down for a second and just seemed to make him mad when it was my turn to pass.
I have a 2006 Allez (what is essentially an S-Works) team frame that looks just like this with the exception of one more “Specialized” written in smaller font on the top tub. I love it. Its understated and slick looking. If I remember right, this paint scheme was not available to the public, only to shops and teams. I got it from a good friend who is a Specialized dealer last winter new in box and built it up with a full Ultegra SL kit I had around.
Pitbull’s name was Eddy and yeah a real sonofabitch. Awesome movie.
