My goodness!!! Does it really come down to this? Are CR'ers just "Two Wheel Masochists?"

Remember (we have had this discussion numerous times over the years) we seem to agree that bicycles are "functional art."

I suggest that rigid definitions of "classic" will (cannot?) not endure with a functional aspect entertained with "art."

Remember, El Presidente has an MFA (I think?) which certainly adds a bias to his recommendation. Of course he is also the BOSS!!!!
