Richie, if we are going to submit to the tyranny of the scale, then there is no logical reason to ride any lugged steel creation, RichardSachs, or otherwise.

Daily, I switch between 16.5 / 17.5 lb. bikes and bikes that weigh in the 24 / 26 lb. range with no diminishment in the smiles per miles ratio. But to each his own.

Someone mentioned an unwatched film still in the can... I liked that Collecting analogy...
