    You aren't lazy like me, who rather than reach for Mike Partridge's fine book on the G15/45s which was in a bookshelf across the room and get the correct number made of 212 simply worked from memory that it was "150 or so" and that when Mike wrote the book 9 years ago, 67 bikes or parts thereof were still known to exist. Glad that Mike did the book - I believe that you gave some assistance on the information in it.

    Want to bet on that?

    Actually, I have Word files with the essentials on each of my bikes with copies of those files on my iPhone. Since I'm never more than the width of a cotton shirt from my iPhone I didn't have to reach across the room for Mike's book to get the precise number.

    The fact you wrote "150 or so" told me you had access to the correct number but didn't want to take the time to look it up, but at the same time you didn't want to quote something incorrect. Hence, the "or so." I highly approve of this approach.
