Hello! My name is Ray Brandes and I have just started riding again after a 20 year break. I have a Houdaille PowerCam and am attempting at getting back in shape. Back in the day, my brother and I built a frame jig and we and a friend made several bicycle frames using it. After that I designed a frame jig and sold plans.
Yesterday on my first group ride in a long time, I sort of kept up with the carbon stuff until my rear tire blew. Walking back I was rescued by another rider who retrieved me with his pickup truck. Nice to see the esprit de coprs hasn't changed with the frame materials.
