I called the gentleman out on it (offlist) who originally posted the note and was quite satisfied with his apology. As someone who grew up referred to with derogatory cultural monikers, extending this discussion oftentimes is worst then letting it drop. At this point I hold that cultural generalities are inaccurate and unfair, and referencing cultural identity by anything else than the greatest respect has little benefit to anyone or anything, especially lucid conversation. I'd rather attempt to find a distinct approach for a build in a French bike and see where that would lead... gabriel L romeu -father was Puerto Rican who's family emigrated from the Catalan area (orientales Pyrenees) of France, mother Dutch who's ancestors were driven out of France by the Huguenots, and both ending up in the US which many times feels more foreign than the other countries i have lived....chesterfield new jersey usa
