CONGRATULATIONS !!!!!!

Mr. Albert Eisentraut , ahhhhh yes , I remember when we ALL just KNEW that he was making the absolute finest bicycle frames made in North America . . .

We didn't realize how many other folks there were , or were about to be , building beautiful bicycles out there . . .

These days I know much better than to try to say anyone is THE best . . .

But that is still a big heavy name to drop in a conversation . . .

Congratulations !
