    Well, you learn something new every day. When I biked through Cody in 1980, either they were not doing the rodeo-every-night thing or I didn't notice. Too bad, I would have liked to see it. Glad it...

    Oh, and for the confessional. I have 1978 Eisentraut, a 1982-ish Ron Cooper and a 1986 De Rosa. They have Campy 10-speed, brifters and all. And I'd do it again.
