Usually we all are dismayed when the reknowned brand is dishonored by the new user... Chinese Motobecane, Mercier, those lamentable Masis, etc.

When the character and unique features are carried forward with respect, as in Hetchins, Bates, Flying Gates, we celebrate the new life. I expect the new Herse to do justice to the tradition, to be different and (gasp, yes) better in their own ways.

I find it interesting that at a moment when one of the greatest marquee bicycle names of all time is being resurrected that people come out of the woodwork to criticize such an endeavor. Good gosh, Masi frames were made by Billato and Mondonico. I didn't hear an uproar over that. In my opinion, if you don't like it, then just don't order and shut up. People who aren't willing to

take risk themselves are often the quickest with the darts when someone else does. Shame on them. Good luck Mike and Mark. I look forward to your work and I don't care whether it looks like an old Rene Herse. I'm confident that you'll offer us a product worthy of emulation. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
