While I try not to be so curmudgeonly or retrogrouchy (are these actual words?) but doesn't this open up discussion of the lugged Colnago Classic, Pegoretti Luigino , etc. While I would love to know my 85 Trek and 89 Serotta (my main riders) are on topic due to both being steel and lugged, doesn't this blur the cut off line to the point where it is nonexistant? I was under the impression that KOF status was bestowed more to a Richard Sachs, Peter Wiegle, Rivendell etc. than to a production shop producing lugged steel frames. And no I don't want to start the whole production vs one man shop debate again.
