As dark and gray as the post WWII Rome was in 1949's "The Bicycle Thief", the world seems a less beautiful place now with an automobile explosion that resembles fulminating ear mites. I miss a world based on honesty and simplicity, even in the face of poverty. It seemed that every bicycle rider in that movie was fit and slim. For race fans, there even was a brief shot of the peloton coming through at the end. I am lost without my Fidis. Garth Libre in Surfside Fl. Merry Christmas all, and may you all get that special bicycle (part) under the tree.
