AH, the taste of Humble Pie! Why does it taste so much like foot-in-mouth.

I've been reminded by two sharp-eyed list members that the 25.4x24 is indeed the ever-popular English standard, not the French, which is 25x1.

For penance, do I have to carry my Sutherland's on my bike for a week, or just sit back and breathe deeply?

Price stays the same. If it's not worth $75, maybe I should put it on a bike. :-) thanks harvey sachs mcLean va
