Subject: [Classicrendezvous] A big bunch of Cycling Plus articles

Hey gang:

I just finished up loading a big batch.. Almost all the vintage articles that I liked from the last three years or so of Cycling Plus magazine. Included are: Cinelli, Raleigh RRA and Lenton, Bates, New Bates vs old Bates, New Hetchins vs old Hetchins, 3 restoration articles, Paris, Thanet, Flying Gate, Applying decals, Lambert, Claude Butler SWB Tandem, Ephgrave, Moulton ... I haven't found the Hetchins piece by Ray Etherton but that will come yet...

Again a special thanks to Hilary Stone, Paul Vincent and Roger St. Pierre. And I urge you all to subscribe to Cycling Plus.

I picked JPEG files because they are a third the size of an Acrobat reader or BMP.. They are a bit fuzzy but I think useable.. You should be able to read the text and see the bikes if you go to the largest size (see below)

Here's instructions to best access the pages. (Skip this if you already savvy in these things... I think the newbies will appreciate it.. I know I would have!) )

First, you might wait and use the highest powered computer and web access you can. I think these files would take forever on a 28K modem! One CR reader waits and does it at work!

1.) Go to my dedicated photo album in PhotoPoint:

http://albums.photopoint.com/j/AlbumIndex?u=1273125&a=9549553

2.) You will notice that the title of each image comes up if you linger over that picture.. Note that some are labeled page 1, page 2 etc.

3.) If you click on the small pictures that will bring up a larger version...

4.) Click AGAIN on the image and you will get the BIG full size version. This allows you to actually read the text...

5.) If you want to copy that file to your hard drive and then be able to make scaled-to-a-page prints, wait until the picture is fully loaded and then right click on the image and then you will see a "save picture as..." command.

I hope that helps someone!
