Now, me duckies, what other proof but the sale of the $2,000 De Rosa do I need for my oft-professed thesis that we do not collect cycles, but legends? Sure Dale could open a new "waste of money"-section, and I think we all from time to time have more money than brains, me included, but a frame that was made alongside the Great Merckxs´s ones - that is IT: Pure legend, mitigated only by a few pounds of metal.

BTW, plans for a German (international, I hope) racer and randonneur meeting are forging ahead. Its working title is Belmer Blitz, the Belm Flash, or Fleche de Belme, and its working date is 11/12 June, 2005. It will certainly not be worth coming over special from the US, but German, both Southern and Northern British or BeNeLux listers might be interested.
