Well after gleening thru the stacks of pics of the Portland show I was left straching my head asking a lot of questions. One: Where is all this headed?

Two: I thought Dale's Website insued that bikes were to be lightweight.

Three: With all the racks etc how many of us old farts want to cruise down to your local store or starbux buy several loafs of bread just to bring them home on titanium frames with a bunch of "goop" all over them.

I agree with one of the other listers, this was like a Haut Coutier Paris fashion show. Nice to look at but who's your aduience. Don't get me wrong I love Titanium as much as the other guy. I even own a Seven with about half the "doo dads" on it.

I guess the older I get the less weight I want to push around, god knows My old body has enough "doo dads" on it I don't need em on my frame.

As Marie said..."Let them eat Titanium"

Dale Can you put the word LIGHTWEIGHT
