    A favorite gift in the CheapOh household is the homemade coupon. It usually ends up being a more cherished gift than the store bought variety. This year for Christmas, give your cycling buddies a free Wrapped Handlebar Coupon. The trick is to make it the best wrapped handlebar they've ever had. Here's how you’ll do it.

    We all know that Cycling Йlan means understanding the subtle balance between tradition and technology. Sometimes the hazy boundaries need to be explored. Sometimes one has to ask a dumb question like, "can 25 year old rims be better than new ones?" PezGambler, Corey Sar Fox, wagers that they can be. He enlists an Italian master mechanic, Marco Balduzzi, to prove it. Along the way, Marco shares some of his special wheel building tips.

    The cycling around Lago di Como in northern Italy is among our favorites, and it’s even better when ex-pro Fabio Negri of ComoLagoBike.com leads the way, and our home base is the Albergo il Perlo Panorama.

    PEZ-Man Corey Fox's recent Lombardia weekend took some unexpected turns, but the expected good times came through with great weather, a top ride with an ex-pro, and a memorable weekend of '7s' at the Hotel Il Perlo on Lake Como.

    The Trentino region of Northern Italy is home to the brutally rugged Dolomiti climbs and one of our favorite places to ride. PEZ's Corey Sar Fox is lucky enough to live in the South Tirolean city of Bolzano and took some time out back in 2008 to show us the beautiful Passo Mendola.

    Usually you go looking for Top Rides, but sometimes they can find you. A simple winter's jot through the same old roads becomes something memorable when a stranger comes along.

    Historic racing bikes, their skinny tires crashing over the hills of Tuscany, guided by wool clad romantics is dangerous entertainment. Naturally, PEZ was there – at this year’s Eroica, getting dusty, then muddy and a bit thoughtful.

    Buying any bike is a statement, but paying $1,300 for a custom made, aluminum Rock Lobster is a Statement. Whether you like it or not, it says that you value performance and value over aesthetics and the current group-think. It's a pretty bold territory to stake – there are good reasons why there are such few inhabitants. PEZ rides one for a month to see how well it lives there.

    Every year someone gets to wear that special Tricolore jersey in the peloton, indicating that they are the National Champion of Italy. Even though it seems that it belongs to Giovanni Visconti – he’s been wearing it for a couple years and won in 2007 – many expect this one to be too hard for the Sicilian to repeat. This year, PEZ is roadside in Valsugana in the Trentino region.

    The sensible is often undervalued in bike reviews because very few dream of buying reasonable, we want spectacular. We want to be admired for our insightful consumerism and matching kit. Yet more often than not, a practical racing bike is a great racing bike. For over 20 years, Werner Pichler aka Rewel has been making un-fabulous custom made titanium bikes in a tiny studio near Bolzano, Italy. PEZ discovers a refreshingly different bike builder.

    Due to the popularity of our Recession Buster Christmas gift feature and the fact that these downright shitty times (excuse our French) are still here, Mr. Cheap-Oh returns for an encore. Chapeau! Chapeau!

    If you don’t know Dedacciai, then you probably should. Their story, their fast rise to glory and their future represent an Italian Bike Saga that merits an investigation. PEZ spent a day visiting the factory near Milan, getting to know the people behind the brand.

    Paul Sadoff has been building custom bike frames for over 30 years under the name Rock Lobster. His candid, unassuming attitude and accessible pricing is a breath of fresh air in these NAHBSy times where art is often prized over substance and proven experience. PEZ finds out what makes this odd ball of sanity tick.

    While many know that the Madonna di Ghisallo is a special shrine to cyclists, only a few realize that another extraordinary place is located just 200 meters away: Cerchi Ghisallo. The Cermenati family has been crafting wheels, fenders and other wooden creations for three generations in the town of Magreglio. PEZ takes a tour and tries their whe

    If you’ve ever been Italy, you can’t help but notice all of these old guys on racing bikes, usually vintage steel ones. These men have great style, seamlessly fitting into our preconceived notions of Italianess. How is this? PEZ investigates this phenomenon on the daily Resia Group Ride that’s been taking place since 1955.

    For some, Made in Italy is just a tarnished slogan, but for others it still means tradition and quality. After touring the Gaerne shoe factory, Corey Sar Fox (aka Pez Threshing Machine), separates the wheat from the sentimentalist chaff.

    Silvio Martinello, a legend on the track and a pretty fine cyclist on the road, has been working as a TV journalist with the Italian broadcaster RAI since retiring 10 years ago. He sits down for an interesting chat with Pez.

    Here at PEZ, we are unabashedly Italo-philes. After the racing and the riding and the eating and especially the drinking, comes time to learn some of the language. While pointing and sign language are acceptable ways to communicate with accommodating Italians, throwing around a few choice words garners appreciation, throwing around cycling ones earns you Serious Bonus Points.
