great story. i wanna read the follow up when the dropout breaks off or something in 1,200 miles or something.
nothing sold these days would be capable of what those " all steel" bikes in the day were capable of.

Gee, I thought the end was the perk:

"But the end of the road is nigh for the Rotrax, Mr Hopkins having spent almost 1,400 on a new American-made Trek bike."

Not like he didn't deserve it or anything:-)
