    Those wheels were pretty bombproof. Not light, but surprisingly tough.

    There's a better than average chance I built your frame. I "filled in" (became a month-long favor) on the composite frame production when we were shorthanded, and built the majority of those, among other things. Glad to see it didn't pop apart on you. 8-[

    I know this is a post from 5 years ago, but I had to reply, because I remember buying that issue.

    The first pic is '75ish, empty lot in Thousand Oaks

    Also from '76, this one has nothing to do with bikes, but Halfdome is in it.
