Well said, put, etc... Three cheers for Dale!!! Is engineering art? Architecture sure is so why not a bike?

And what architect goes out and pours their founda- tion, puts the frame up, plasters and paints, land scapes and then acts as his own broker?

Why do I think he is just playing devils advocate?

Taking an extreme side to make us think about ele- vating framebuilder to god status? He surely can't believe his own rhetoric but his point is taken.

Bruce, are you just pinging our spokes? I think if the frame builders on the list would start calling themselves Mobile Sculptors then that would really get you going!!! Tell us how you really feel:)

Ohhhh geeze, now I've started the Architecture and Engineering holy war...
