After reading Jon Crate's response to John Hurley's un-resignation from the list I got to thinking about bikes that are at least OT in terms of timeline but due to their mass-production, low-craftsmanship, and gas-pipe weight may not qualify for discussion here. Is there a place for such bikes given that for many they were their first love, they transported them to and from college or first job, they introduced them to this wonderful world of cycling, etc.?
