"Rule 15. While the CR focus is on the beginning of the Twentieth century to 1983, a few contemporary, classically made small workshop bikes are considered on topic* here These are generally referred to as "KOF" (see # 2 above) but those welded, injection molded, or glued modern wonders belong in some other mail list. Ditto for mountain bikes, "middle weights", BMX, recumbents and balloon tired bikes."

Hmmmm... a mountain bike with racks is now clearly a touring bike? Long stays are for touring bikes and not for mountain bikes? Mmmmm... yeah, right Mike, whatever you say...
