  1. Hello Michael and Dede; This is a beautiful looking bike, as are all the Mariposas that I have seen!! I had meant to mention to you on Saturday that Mike Kohen (owner of this one) is a riding buddy and I was eager to see his bike this summer, but just have not yet got together with him ..

    It was lovely to meet you both (after following your illustrious careers all these years) to chat and share the road with you, albeit only briefly, as I had to get back to host a party that day. I hope to have the pleasure again sometime soon. As I mentioned, a Mariposa is certainly on my horizon sometime soon, but I think I may need to thin out some of my current ‘harem’ first.. My congratulations on the wonderful work you are doing in carrying on Mike’s business and passion.! This was and is such an iconic fixture in the Toronto cycling community.

    All best wishes; Norbert Kraft

    1. Hi Norbert,

      It was a pleasure to meet you and ride with you Saturday. We’d be pleased to work with you on a bike project when you are ready. Looking forward to seeing you again soon!

      Dede and Michael
