OH, NO NO NO ! Popularity would mega-further raise the price of vintage parts. Shhhh. Keep it under your Brooks. Richard Cielec Chicago, Illinois wrote: In a message dated 10/24/2004 10:46:53 PM Eastern Daylight Time, writes:

Perhaps we should give kudos to Rodale's editors and we just might start a trend or at least foster a "classics corner" in the mag, huh? >>

Yes! I forgot about that bit covering Kopp's! You know, maybe we are such geeks after all? Maybe this vintage stuff has a broader appeal than we think?

Wouldn't it be neat if we had a section each month in Bicycling that had something along these lines, like Cycling Plus from the UK has with Hilary Stone's Classics page and Roger St Pierres' reminisces?

Maybe we should flood Bicycling's office with letters raving about this new trend? Maybe all us kids should get together and start a show and sing and dance and raise the money to save the orphanage? (Ooops, got carried away there..Sorry!)

Back to reality..........
