June 1st 1977...wearing my Jive Turkey t-shirt, Faded Glory jeans, Chuck Taylor high tops and trying out my brand new 27 inch 12 speed (a new concept from the 10 speed) bike that had hydraulic brakes (no wires just hydraulic fluid through the tube that opened and closed the brakes) and a headlight that operated off the generator that was located on the rear tire. I was 175 pounds and thought I was fat.
