I enjoyed C+109 and C+110 as I have all the other issues. Like Dale, I might prefer to read a DC review of a 1950's or earlier British bike, but I think Lambert and Klein definitely qualify as significant milestones, albeit in some ways forerunners of some undesirable current trends. Besides, I suppose many of the classic British marques have already been profiled before Dale or I became subscribers. There is also still the Retro column, I believe the one in C+110 was about British riders on the Continent in the 50's through 70's. The Klein article raises an issue discussed on the list before, i.e. the nature of stress fatigue in aluminum. It is implied that the larger diameter Klein tubes lengthened fatigue life by reducing the magnitude of cyclic deflection loading. Having studied this subject only in a couple of engineering materials courses, I was under the impression that it was the number of deflection cycles rather than the magnitude of deflection that determined when a structure would fail. Can anyone more qualified in this field correct me on this? Also, won't the thinner walled Klein tubes fail in fewer cycles than the thicker walls of the classic Alan and Vitus aluminum frames? (See Dale, there is a classic angle to my question.)
