Dear Dan and Smiley,

I just wanted to tell you how pleased I am with this BEAUTIFUL MACHINE!! From the frame right down to Smiley's expert fitting, this bike feels as much like an extension of my body as any ever will. It's nimble yet feels incredibly solid, and it's so quiet. I'm really happy with all of the finishing touches that I had no part of. Whoever picked out the remaining components understood exactly the pared down look I was going for; it all came together beautifully. The lugged fork is very attractive, and was a welcome surprise. Don't ever discontinue the Rainier; you've given me no reason to deviate! A big thanks to both of you, and everyone else at R+E for a truly rewarding experience.
