    Seeing the Q and A in the ANAQ thread about prying, and the offer Nathan made to do a prying demonstration video on the DEK1, I had two nearly simultaneous thoughts:

    - I would love to see a test-to-destruction video on the DEK1! (like was done on the OGFK.)
    - There is no way in the world I would ever volunteer myself to do that testing!! (It will be impossible to destroy one and I would give out long before the knife does.)

    I'm not now nor have I ever been a "Roadie "
    Road riding keeps you in shape when you can't ride the trails.

    Wow, what a teacher and pioneer. I never met him but I did meet Tom Kellogg at the Cambridge shop in the early 90's.

    A Roadie is someone who rides a road bike on the road.

    Unless you are saying you ride a road bike on some kind of a stand in the off season?

    Yup, I’ve known Sachs for many years. That’s a cross bike from Chester. The first one I posted was made by Peter Weigle who lives a few miles from Chester. The Moots is great, as well as the Hampsten made by Ken Eriksen (founder of Moots). There is a yellow Pegoretti in the back; the theme of the custom paint job is Freud. I used to be a big Colnago fan, but now I prefer ti frames.

    I started riding competitively at fourteen or so on a Legnano. That was decades ago. Now I only ride by myself. I believe cycling is the result of a chromosomal malfunction. Either you have it or you don’t. If you do, you can’t avoid it. The design and building of frames is a fascinating world too.

    Hey, sorry for the rant, brother man. But I said it, it’s a genetic malady. Cheers. :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
