As per Joe's posting of this info on Retro Bike: "Wende Cragg, Andrew Ritchie, [me], Alan Wulzen, [Otis Guy], Tony Tom (Bicycle Odyssey, Sausalito), Sandra Davidson. The saddened Maytag repairman represents Fritz Maytag of Anchor Steam."

In his post Joe Breeze states: "Otis Guy and I commissioned Tom Ritchey to build us a tandem for our cross-country (SF-NY) record attempt. Early in 1979, I showed my Breezer #1 MTB to Tom. Specifically I wanted Tom to join the two sets of twin laterals to the seat tubes on our tandem-to-be the same way I had joined them on my Breezer, with an elliptisized cross tube." Joe was posting on a Mt. Bike focused website as he was showing the link between his Breezer, the Anchor Steamer, and subsequent Mtn. Bikes built by Ritchey.
