40 Years Ago: March 1980 in Bicycling magazine

For this look back at 40 years ago, I've included an eclectic mix of articles and ads including "Beating Europe's Best" (introducing Selectocam), "Selecting, Placing, and Installing Cleats", and "This Congressman Promotes (Glenn Anderson, CA)".
I'm still scratching my head over "Beating Europe's Best". A better title might have been "US Cyclists Get Lucky in Europe", but you'd think it was about something entirely different. Actually, this article begs for a "What's Your Title?" contest.

The articles about alignment and cold-setting will be included in an upcoming Frames and Framebuilding post.

A couple of articles from this issue were posted previously:
Road Test/Bike Review (1980) Triple Chainwheelers
Equipment/Product Review (1980) Bench Testing Front Derailleurs

As usual, let me know if you'd like to see something else listed in the ToC and I'll do my best to send you a pdf.
Just send me a PM that includes your email address.
