When we look at the Cento1NDR, it evokes images of riding the beautiful "white roads" around Tuscany or tackling famous sections of pave at Flanders or Roubaix. It's hard not to channel your inner classics specialist and picture yourself duking it out in a select group of fast riders that have made the selection late in the race. And in races such as these, both in reality and in our heads, the equipment demands require an efficient machine that can soak up the rough roads.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
