Subject: [Classicrendezvous] Yes, we have no banana's

Dale was nice enough to include a picture from the Specialized booth from Interbike with this thing they had set up with a scale showing how a Specialized frame weighs the same as 4.5 banana's (see his show section on Cycles D'Oro)

My girlfriend, not fooled by this malarkey, picked one of those banana's up. I don't know what they put in them, but a assure yo uif you were to bite one you would chip your teeth. I felt one myself and I will tell you even the most earnest gorilla would gripe. So for the record, a Specialized frame weighs as much as 4.5 lead-filled banana's.

Nice marketing shtick though.
