Subject: [CR]Renaissance Cycles Packages

The postman strained to the door with two packages today. It took a little over two months at the economy rate.

One package is a complete Cyclus tool set. These look to be a very workmanlike set with a number of improvements over a Campy set and adaptable to 1 1/8" steerers etc. They are quite a deal but no snappy wooden box. I thought for a while of buying a used Campy set but the John Perlogizi (spelling massacre) pointed out theat they are usually beat up from misuse.

The rest is all the cables, brake blocks, hoods etc that are so important when bringing bikes back to life. It is amazing how much great stuff Baron has. Thanks.

> I think next up the Raleigh ladder was the Super Course.

> Now leads a slightly more noble life as my "club" bike.
> Sports an AW hub and cottered crank lifted from a Phillips.
> Since both were Raleigh thread it was a strightforward conversion with most parts coming from Harris Cyclery.
