    Hey ECS,
    You have a whole winter of crappy weather to get yours up and running! Good luck with the resto and hope to see it before Spring sets in.

    Fun stuff to look at, thanks Doc.
    Wild to see a Trek decked out in a lot of Specialized stuff.

    Man, that is so great to see! Paul used to show up at the Putah Creek TT on either that or one of his other bikes, and do a full on road TT but with skinny tires. Damn fast of course!

    I remember when he had Specialized Fatboys on his bike way before they came out on the market, and the first time I saw them was in '87 I think. Then that Epic he had, with U-brakes! Best one of all, imho.
    Good friction shifting is getting hard to find nowadays....
