There you see how easy that was? ;-) Just because there are *many* subjects that have been "hashed" over on the list, by all the list veterans, doesn't mean that someone who hasn't heard all the same comments should be denied a meaningful reply. That's my opinion, Chuck. Maybe he should have included Masi or Campagnolo in his question, since those subjects certainly haven't been hashed over very much.
