Excellent issue although I personally prefer the Vx to it's previous iterations. The trek ad is really cool too. I wish trek had stayed a little truer to it's roots.

As always, thank you!

Love the Trek ad about getting a lugged hand built frame.

In 1977, Pete in Gulfport really needed the internet.

Hope you're still cycling, Pete!
