    Each time I need a break when crawling around Mike's Bikes I am reminded that someone had the foresight to save some Wheelsmith heritage

    Saw her in action way back when there used to be UCI mtb in Napa - gold suit and all

    (Trying to post from forum runner for the first time too)

    Ah yes, Ms. Pezzo. She used Mario's dentist and Alberto's butcher.

    And, apparently, Gary's tailor.

    And I'm okay with all of that.

    Liz= carbon cookie cutter frames. light, fast, fun to ride, looks just like your buddies. but soon forgotten
    All the other women in this thread= handmade, fine craftsmanship frames- either you have one and will always treasure it, or have lusted over one never to have one to straddle.

    She was part of adolescent me's decision to try riding these wacky bikes in the woods.

    To my total shock and dismay, none of the girls on the trails at my local park even remotely resembled her.

    Used to see Rebecca on the UofW campus all the time. I think she was sixteen when she started (more bad thoughts). A LBS source, that used to sponsor her says she is back in town and he thinks she is working as a scientist.

    Seeing Paula Pezzo reminds me of an aerobics instructor that the guys would talk about and how her front zipper would get lower as the workout went on. She increased the male participants in her class. Like that instructor, every year it seemed like Pezzo's front zip would get lower and lower.

    Let's stop objectifying these women and laud them for their accomplishments.

    I am grumpy, so forgive me for this - but why does every post about women's cycling or doping or whatever have to include a picture of Tammy Thopmson? This whole thread is bad enough, but is there really a point?
