Tom and all,

Once again, similar to should I ride the classic or not...should I modernize or not...It is your ultimate decision because it, after all, is what you want! Do what you think! You already know the answer deep down, grasshopper!

One of the list members tells of meeting up with a rider on a Litespeed who liked the members' vintage bike better to ride than his own modern bike. I suppose this has been beaten to death some time before my arrival, but I am looking at a Masi frame that is already refinished beautifully and I'm thinking " I could re-do the spacing from 126mm to 130 and put new record stuff on this and I'd really have a sweet bike". I have two friends who closely advise me on such matters. One is horrified by the idea and the other thinks it is the way to go for a bike one intends to use. I'm more than a little curious to see what list members might have to say about this. I suppose I'll really take some lumps here.
