generalization from prejudice, not reflected by the facts. Never seen a leather bag on a randonnee.

this is false, totally false. Tons of randonneurs ride carbon. There is huge overlap between the ultracycling community and randoneuring.

where would you have gotten such an idea. Certainly not from a randonneur.

This is why I am asking if Randonneuring is about an image portrayed.
I'm not exactly sure what this is supposed to mean. Randonneuring is about riding your bike a long way. There are people that have randoneuring bikes that don't participate in randonneuring. That's fine, but it says nothing about randonneuring.
