The other contestant was PastorBob! The rest of you just ignored my offer.
And oh how I tried! But despite my best efforts, and even with a few hints from the Good Doctor, John was the more intuitive sleuth.

But not being a sore looser, I soon there after packaged up the Super Sport frame I bought from el twe and the fork I traded for from Sierra. Sent both to Dr. D. for some serious rehabilitation. Then there was Decalgate. Meanwhile, back in NH, I had my own wheel building fiasco (I ordered 27" rims, 700c's came, and then accidently laced to my hubs), but now I just picked up the rebuilt 27" wheels.

Since that time I've been pinning away. There have been days of sunshine when the dump yeilded a few amazing finds (including the one I'm currently working on).

But I've been , in a sad way, awaiting the day when my dear UPS/FedEx/DHL driver stops at the end of the driveway and delivers a box which looks similar to this one John found on his lawn the other day. O HAPPY DAY!
