I can't believe you managed to condense 97,342 emails into that post above.
Outstanding work, outstanding post, and that is one hot frame you sent me a photo of.
I, for one, would seriously consider a Chirico frame, knowing what I know now.
Of course, now I'm wondering if my SC frame with the custom eyelets came from Chirico, too.
It won't keep me up at night, but knowing there's a chance I have two Chirico-made frames is pretty darn cool.
If ever I run across "Chirico" dropouts, I'm going to quickly and quietly steal that bike.
