Subject: [CR]Reflections on Cirque, second thoughts

Perhaps this may require a vintage bike intervention, or I should join lugs anonymous, or go into a rehab center for treatment of lug overdose, but what haunts me from the Cirque is my continued thoughts of the plainer lugged bikes: the vintage, like the McLeans, those that have Prugnat lugs, and maybe Nervex; but in particular the fine lines of the frames from the younger, lesser known builders with less decorative but finely done lugs.

Swearing off anything fancier than Nervex a day at time,

Cheers (and thank you once again MJ, Wayne, and all)
