    Did you Race in ABL of A?

    With the considerable interest in C&V in pre-1975 racing bicycles I'm curious as to how many competed on them when the sanctioning body was the Amateur Bicycle League of America.

    I still have an ABLA license in a scrapbook, but I don't remember what bike I rode. I don't think I would wish to have that bike though, I tended to wear them out.

    They changed to USCF in the next couple of years

    PS: Did you vote for #2? You know that you want to......
    PPS: Did you mean "I wrecked it" for "I tended to wear them out."?

    I voted number 2... however I doubt I would find that bike comfortable anymore. When I was racing I was 138#... I weigh a bit more than that now.
