CR is the Retro list, BOBs are cyclings Shakers, make it simple & beautiful. or failing that, make it out cast offs. Another unstated thread is a reaction against the over complication of current life. Why make a such a simple thing as a bicycle complicated ? A friction shifter is a more elegant solution than a STI brifter for example. G.P. had a new retrofriction shifter made, he is not coming out with a Cambio-Corsa bike. -------- Scott Goldsmith Zinzinnati, Ohio Life is too short, for ugly toys.
