Praise for Rouleur
"I had the last copy autographed by Ernesto Colnago, and he asked if i could send him another one – so if it’s good enough for Ernesto, what are you waiting for?"
"Rouleur accomplishes something more than making you want to ride: It makes you realize, or remember, that cycling is, simply, the greatest sport in the world."
Bill Strickland – Bicycling magazine
"Rouleur is for those who appreciate history, art and literature as much as cycling. This kind of focus could lead to self-parody or, worst of all, pretentiousness but the single-minded dedication of the editor and contributors makes Rouleur majestic."
