Gasp! You're speaking of the bike I love! Or at least one of them. :-) Lets say instead that their peerless qualities were concealed by their reasonable price, classically restrained appearance and lack of marketing hype. After all, does the bike ride any better just because it has a famous name on the down tube? (Boy, is that a big can o' worms!)
Thanks, Peter, for the additional info.
