While not on any whole bicycles , as far as I know , my own personal favorite use of a racer's name on bicycle parts :

Alfredo Binda !!

What a poetic pair of words ! What a flowing and elegant signature on those buckles ! What a heroic , and yet so very happy , image on those original "glassine" bags , in which the products were shipped . . .

and , just out of curiosity ,

how does Urago figure into this list idea ?
