Mark didn't tell the whole story. Tom Sanders is showing me the Pauley in the lobby of the Battleground Inn. He says he wants "$xxx". Before my jaw can move, Mark says, "I'll take it". Mark and Tom win an award at Cirque for the bike, but the story doesn't stop there. Mark doesn't take the Pauley back with him to West Virginia because Larry Black buys it from him before he can get it out the door!! And, while I can't confirm it, I suspect the Pauley is actually hanging in Jill Dimauro's shop, Proteus Bicycles. Since then, I've picked up two of Tom's bikes and he has picked up my $$$$ and a Masi from me. Mark and I still discuss almost every bike he & I buy since we ride the same size. This list is great. I've made some great friends, Mark and Tom among them. Quality of life is definitely improved because of CR. Thanks Dale. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
