This randonneur bike (with full wiring) is so cool, i just wanted to share it with everyone else on the CR list :

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=280212639279

I especially enjoyed the little icon of a bicyclist stamped into the crank, so if you remove the crank and lose it in your parts box, you'll know where it came from ...

Another cool feature is the "umbrella" associated with the suicide front gear shifter ... it keeps the rain off the chain, i suppose... :-) :-)

One thing I'd do if I were buying the bike, is to purchase about a gallon of proofide to go with the saddle ... :-) :-)
