Just wanted to say thanks to Dale and everyone else for creating the Cirque. What a great, great thing! My good friend Jill DiMauro has been raving to me about the Cirque for a few years but since I'm not super into the vintage bike thing I never went (I'm a moutain biking singletrack fiend at heart). Well, I can say I'll be back next year. Everyone I met was super cool. I saw nothing but big smiles all weekend. Riding the streets of Greensboro in the rain with my Campy cap pulled low reminded why riding bikes is so great. I don't think I've ever seen so many cool bikes in one place at one time (that Caygill - it was a yellowish color with amazing lugwork - wow!!). I especially enjoyed talking to the various framebuilder pros who were in attendance. I kinda felt like I was getting in on the framebuilders double secret handshake (I'm just a rank amateur). Anyway, thanks again for a fabulous weekend. See you all next year.

Thanks, Tom
