Now that Retrobike has developed over the few years and has become pretty much a one stop resource for retrobikers worldwide(!) - wouldnt be good if any of the old school frame builders started posting here?

Im sure we've had a few celebs pass through these pages at some point.

Their words would speak a thousand pictures. Anyone remember or ever participate in the old Bicycle Science email list a few years ago? Sheldon Brown ran it. Questions had to be serious technical or they were rejected. Some of the posters I remember were: Keith Bontrager, Gary Klein, Jobst Brandt. It was the best email list I have ever used...next to this one;)
I exchanged several frame question emails with Keith Bontrager.

According to his website, it is sleeping.

Maybe if everyone emailed him, he would start it up again?

I think some should visit www.frameforum.net once. Reputable builders posting there.

email them and ask them to do an interview, a podcast would serve the forum well.

Something like that would be great. Sadly my Engrish isn't great. If someone wants to pick this up that would be grand.
