Subject: [CR]BMX for road bikes is on topic

Kim,

Is that a opinion based upon experience? Why would a very lightweight part made within the timeline by a respected company known for quality, and that can be modified for better than just practial use on lightweight road or track bikes of the period deemed acceptable by the CR guidelines, not be considered on topic? Do you have something against modification? You are not lathe friendly? One might choose to eat his dinner out of coffee cans, but it isn't necessarily coffee that is being eaten.
