Whew, Tom.... an authentic diatribe!

And when the CR List starts to debate two great French marques, well.. marvelous.

And yep... Anquitel's St. Raphael era jersey is simply one of the best looking ever. No question. Worth getting a Gitane just to be able to wear it. I must admit not being too keen for the Renault era kit... what can you expect from the maker of some of the worst cars ever? Remember the Renault 5 and the Renault Dauphine? Zoot alors!

So yep I'd love a Gitane but one with all French sexy components, please... a French frame with Italian bits on it? What's the point of that?

Me, I off on the checkerboard pathway to perdition tomorrow... all 45 odd miles of it.

Thanks again for the great post.

When are we going to hear from the Mercier and Lejeune camps?
