Subject: [CR]What's the theme for Velo Rendezvous 7 ???

I've had some questions about what the theme of this year's Velo Rendezvous 7 is.

Well actually there is NO theme. This year there is a Colnago Timeline Special Exhibit... last year there was a Bianchi Timeline and the year before there was a Masi Timeline. But these are not themes, they are Timeline Special Exhibits.

I've had a theme for the first four VRs but always had people saying, "But I don't have an X bike so I guess I won't bring a bike... sniff." Or, "I see someone is already bringing an X bike so I won't bother bringing mine... sniff, sniff."

The Timeline Special Exhibit works out much better and it is truly AMAZING to see thirty, forty or fifty bikes of the same marque spanning decades to compare and contrast. A unique education! And everyone brings their cool bikes because there is no theme to dictate what they bring to the show. It's all good!!!
