I read that article when that issue was on the stands. It is the first time I have seen it since, but still recall several phrases from the article. I wanted a Tesch after reading it, but at 15 could not afford one. I finally picked one up this winter that needed some work. Only took me three decades to get one...what issue is that?

I had the same reaction reading about the "harsh" high-flange hubs. Those skinny Contis and Benotto-wrapped bars have nothing to do with it.
