Ever since before I was born my dad had this road bike he used. I grew up with the thing, and rode on the back in a little seat attached above the rear wheel when I was small enough. Now that I'm much older and going to college he gave me the bicycle in order to get around town and go to and from school, all saving me much needed money that would otherwise be spent on gas.
Now I'm trying to figure out what brand of bike I have. My mother, who comes from a bicycle racing background. She raced when she was younger and my uncle runs a racing league in the Chicago area (ABR) and raced when he was younger as well. My mother said that the brand, Palo Alto (I think I spelled that right) has been around for a while. After spending quite a bit of time searching the internet for more information on the brand all I've been able to bring up is the Palo Alto bike shop in California which sells various brands of bikes. Did the brand ever exist?
I'm out of town right now so I can't exactly take a picture of the bike. But the best I can describe it is having a blue frame with the letters Palo Alto written in green with yellow outlines and an emblem that has a picture of a tree...I think, I can't picture the bike perfectly in my head. The wrapping on the handle bars is white and the seat was a brown suede...I think it was suede, it was really chewed up, and I ended up replacing it. But anyways, its really bugging me that I can't find anything on the brand of bike, and the only search result being for a bike store in California. So anyone have any idea or picture of what I might be talking about?
