1. That's why there's also an iBOB list, a touring list, a tandem list, a framebuilder's list, a fixed gear list, plus lists on British bikes, components, icebikes, and if there's others let me know... One big tip is to sign on and get the digests instead of individual postings. Or not to get email at all, but to read postings from the web page and to check out the archives.

2. Tell you the truth Dale, I was at the last Cirque, and even plain black lycra shorts weren't very palatable on many CR folk...<G>
