I really enjoyed Mr. Pergolizzi's pictures of the RIH shop in Amsterdam. Thanks for posting those John!

I have some pictures I took of my visits to Schroder and Banani in Copenhagen that I will try and post, as soon as I dig them up. In both cases, I was given a "back-of-the-house" tour (which in one case included the attic). It's really interesting how nice and accommodating bike geeks can be when they run into other bike geeks, even if they need an interpreter!

I know it's early, with the Cirque on the horizon, but all this talk about RIH, Allegro, Mondia, etc. (oh, and don't forget Merckx) got me to thinking. I want to go out on a limb and make a suggestion that the theme for Cirque 2006 be Benelux/Sweden/Switzerland, etc. I know there's a Batavus or two out there in CR land too. What do you think, Dale?

PS: My Schroder is still for sale. A formal post about that soon (when I get pix up). Get a head start!
