Subject: [CR]Why British/French group

I for one congratulate Bruce and Bob for their efforts in starting up the new group, I have already confirmed my support. Our British cycling history is very important to us "this side of the water" and to include our French neighbours surely makes a solid foundation to build the site on. I don't have much knowledge or interest of American bicycle or its history but never the less respect their time and efforts in promoting their side of the story. I like many others in the past have chosen French ascessories over the years and tended to steer clear of the pricer Italian and latterly the Far Eastern products. My British and French frames plus ascessories have always kept me in good steed over the last 50 years and to be part of its history has always being a pleasure which I can now share with others! I look forward to the new proposed venture wish it every sucess whilst hoping make my contribution by taking an active part in the proceedings from time to time. Doug. Smith North Dorset UK

I hope we can see a future of compatability in our
