Hello Listers,

I can't exactly say I'm 'fortunate' to live in Toronto in December, as it's not exactly a cycling paradise weather-wise, but I have visited Mr. Barry's collection recently.

It's everything Steven said, and more. Hopefully further updates to their website will share more "modern" bikes like the randonneur bikes like the Rene Herses' and the racing bikes like those from Masi, Cinelli, Gios, and others.

Mike's own "mariposa" brand has always been steeped in the tradition of the French school, for sure.

Great interview with Dede can be found at:

Unfortunately, looks like she's riding a '03 Cannondale with Shimano next year!
