Devon - Thanks for the chuckle! My wife and daughters have long since realized that when I start staring at a woman riding a bike that I'm looking at the bike. Driving one down to college last fall, I was peering across the passenger seat at a rider and without having to be asked or missing a beat my daughter said, "Cool - Hey Dad, it's a Frejus!"

Guys, As a woman, i will give you all a clue: i like (and i think most women like) to see a guy on a bike who looks like he rides a lot and loves it so much that he takes good care of himself so he can ride alot. that, and i love very good race bike tastes. i am not impressed by guys who look out of car windows at me on my bike. i have to say that until recently most guys have not even noticed my good taste in bikes and i have only had one guy ever who was smart enuf to see that i like bike parts much better than flowers and smart enuf to know what sort of bike parts he should give me on my birthday. so i guess that means i don't understand the opposite sex either, unless they really like nice, steel race bikes... i have no idea why there aren't more women and men like us! what is wrong with people?? don't they like fun?

btw: acquiring a bike never repels me unless it is, in my view, an unworthy
bike.
