Thank you. Yes, I have been looking for a few months -- part of the fun is the hunt, I'll admit it! Just trying to cast a wider net! Yes, preference is for the TdF, but I've kept my eyes open for other models as well. Scored the aforementioned Motobecane from someone at work and it's a great bike, just a tad to small for me.

Wow, this looks great! Thank you! I'll see if I can get a facilitator to help out on this one.
