MISC:   Did you catch this TV show this weekend posted by: Ray on 10/1/2002 at 12:10:58 AM
Ran across a program on cable this weekend about bicycles first use in the Military. It was an interesting show that detailed the 25th calvery regimin and how they did a 2000 test run on Spalding bicycles to see if they had a military application. The entire regimin consisted of all black soldiers with the exception of the leader. Interesting story from a bicycle and historic viewpoint. It was an hour long and was done like he Civil War special that PBS did some time ago. I did mamage to tape it from the beginning in case no one else did.

MISC:   Columbia 1960's made for Goodyear men's bike posted by: Linda on 9/25/2002 at 2:27:16 PM
I recently bought a Columbia bicycle at an estate sale. The owner said it was made in the 60's for Goodyear Tire Co. It is a men's bike with the whitewall goodyear tires. There are a few rust specks on the fenders but other than that it appears in good condition. The lettering is red ad white and the original paint is in good condition. I am looking to re-sell the bike and have no idea of it's worth.


   RE:MISC:   Columbia 1960's made for Goodyear men's bike posted by joel on 9/25/2002 at 6:55:45 PM
Columbia made a full line of bikes from top of the line to bare bones. You will have to provide a better discription or a photo.
