Subject: [CR]Two of my bikes displayed on the official Colnago website

Somebody who visited my site wrote to tell me that he'd seen photos of a couple of bikes just like mine displayed on the Colnago website. I checked, and sure enough, the photos on display are my photos, of a couple of my on-topic bikes. Here's the link:

This is not the "history" section of the Colnago site, so I am surprised they chose to display a couple of "old bikes" instead of some of the current models. Maybe Ernesto is becoming nostalgic?

I didn't know the photos were being used, but I certainly don't mind. In fact I think it's kinda cool, so I figured I would share the link with the list.

I assume Colnago got my photos from Rouleur Magazine, who used some of my photos (with permission) for a two-page spread which was part of a Colnago retrospective (published a few months ago in Issue Four). Here's a photo of the spread: http://raydobbins.com/misc/Rouleur/Rouleur_Center.jpg

The Rouleur folks were nice enough to give me credit, so I guess I am now officially a published photographer!

Rouleur is a London-based quarterly magazine, covering the pro road racing scene, as well as some vintage topics - for example, in the same issue as the Colnago retrospective, they also had an article about the movie Breaking Away.
