R.I.P Roland Della Santa

R.I.P Roland Della Santa

Anyone making bicycle frames with steel tubes and lugs is a hero to us.

Roland Della Santa was special as not only did he create classically beautiful bike frames, but he inspired one of the USA's greatest cyclists - Greg LeMond.

You can read more about that here.

Zio Lorenzo met him a time or two at NAHBS. Della Santa was certainly a guy who put the hand-built into the North American Hand-built Bicycle Show.
