Randonneuring (image)

how much of Randonneuring is about image?

The style of bags, leather bags, leather seats gumwall/skinwalls, Steel frames, geometry, etc.....

I am getting the feelings that sometimes the only difference between Randonneuring and say the other same things is all in image. as in No carbon allowed in Randonneuring, that carbon thing would be endurance riding, or Ultracycling.

As in Like a 4 arm spider ring of a New Ultegra crank is a no no to some people in the Randonneuring circle.

This is why I am asking if Randonneuring is about an image portrayed.
