I'd rather ride there and get it myself.

And I only need one.

Chances are I'd have to pay customs/duty on it, too.

Oh, well.

A good grapefruit knife is worth it.

So's a good, adventurous ride.


cheers,
Tom

ISTM Ritchey makes Campagnolo-compatible stuff,
and there're plenty of Ritchey on-line/mail-order
suppliers.

I dunno what they'd charge for S & H.

Ah, thank you for that. I have a couple bikes with no bottle cage
mounting holes that I was wanting to fix up. These should do handily.

So, another person seduced to the dark side of Licktons.

Aw, Licktons can't be /that/ diabolical. Or even
as diabolical as a double-eighteen set of dominoes,
or a cup of coffee sweetened with English mints, or
a front wheel drive safety bicycle. Or Sheldon Brown's
thing with the multiple handlebars.

IIRC Ron Hardin (hi, Ron! <wave, smile>) obtains
replacement parts for his Huffies from Licktons,
and he's quite practical-minded. So, there's yet
another satisfied customer.


cheers,
Tom
