That was quite a blaze I touched off there, with the fakish masi fixie-sorr y Dale. I'm only 32 so that would make me the next generation? I missed the whole "classic" era by many years. I've a few of the better Raleighs and F rench production bikes, and even a Windsor Pro. Nothing Italian yet. Some h ave been abused but they're bikes after all. I value what I've got and don' t feel the need to chop them up for fashion, then again I'm a very modestly paid public employee. Try buying a KOF bike earning 22k/yr. Vintage frames are just beginning to take off here, instead of getting strange looks from the cycling crowd. I recently gave some cheap frames to kids who planned t o add $500 worth of new parts. Go figure.

I must be getting "old" because I'm not impressed by danger anymore, like t his brakeless "tall bike" made with two lugged frames.
