I just read your dissertation re: bike collecting. I howled... I guess I'm not the only closet collector. The only person that I know that truly has it made is Jay Van de Velde. He has turned his garage into his own personal shrine. The beauty of the deal is that it is totally open to the house. His wife knows every bike. Truly a man with a clear conscience. Can you send me your passage on a word doc so that I can hang it up in my office. By the way I have frames and bike hidden all over the house. My own version of an Easter Egg hunt. So I got to go I have to go find my Masi GC, I forgot where I hid it.
