She was a cutie. How about the naked chick in a tub full of bike parts? I was thinking: "Don't move!"

Yes that one too. This issue is still a keeper. What was Steve Madden (Editor) thinking? Must have had a brain fart for just a second and that photo got past him.

I wonder what he has got in the backpack--going on a picnic maybe? I thought it was really cute, don't think my husband and I will do it though.

Nice looking bike. Must be English with the mudguards/fenders. Anyone know what the frame is? Thorn maybe? Interesting it also runs the timing chain on the right side. MarkL, what say you as resident tandem expert?

(Well... you've got to divert your eyes, haven't you!!)

Amusing, but still not enough to entice me back for a subscription to bicycling. Maybe I'll get lucky and someone in the 50+ will share the occasional gem with us.
