Hi Bob,

It was great to see you at Ed Litton's shop the week before last. I went home and called Gordon Burns to see if he had any longer 12cm french Cineeli stems laying around...no such luck! I'm glad to see you're still among the living. Hope you're back on the bike soon. I've been in atrial fibrillation for about 6 years now..no more Davis Doubles on a 50/18 fixed gear, but I cherish every day. I'll keep you in my prayers, friend.
