Shimagnolo; I think your photo exactly demostrates a point I was trying to make; The perfect portionality of the wheel and bike. If we were to move those bikes 15 feet apart and take another photo, it would not be noticable that one is much larger or smaller than the other. They both just look right -- perfect.

PS: And that Mixte will probably be an awesome rider...but I have a weakness for them stemming from back in the early 70's having had some nice French mixte singles and tandems and never got over it.
