    Some of the things in that catalog are very interesting. I like the american saddles with their anatomical cutouts. They show that there is really nothing new under the sun.

    Very interesting stuff. Thank you.

    I'll take a B17 for $2.40

    (or about $62 in current dollars).

    Oh, I think $2.40 is a goodish bit more than $62 today. And that 1900 B17 would be worth a bit more than that as well.

    It is pretty impressive, though, how much of that 1900 gear looks like something we would still use today, though probably a lot heavier.

    Interesting to see they had drop bars as early as 1900.
