Cow/BRAIN?!

Just to lighten up your day in the midst of winter . . .
BRAIN (Bicycle Retailer and Industry News) has a feature story on roller riding . . . featuring tandems.
Great photo on front page showing a tandem duo intensely pedaling on Kreitler rollers as part of Iowa's USA Cycling sanctioned roller race series. Story is continued on page 23 featuring another color photo of a couple in Muscatine, IA riding a Zona custom c/f tandem with a rather unique paintjob: a Holstein (black and white) patterned paint scheme and . . . wearing Holstein patterned jerseys. Cowabunga!!!
These roller race events are done in bike shops and shopping malls creating an interest in cycling/tandems even in midst of winter.
A good way to relieve the boredom on cold/snowy days!
Pedal on TWOgether!

Whenever I see that I can't help thinking:

Don't have a cow, dude!

Strange, I was thinking about brand names & symbols this weekend. I guess thats why i brought up Gateway. I made a mental list of time tested best of the best. Apple never seems to fade. Toyota, Honda are others. Campagnolo was until the 80's. Michelin. Maybe VW to many in the 50's & 60's. Levis.
