Fork isn't bent! Some numb nut turned the fork backwards and mounted the caliper and stem forward. I guess he couldn't concentrate with Kathy being oiled down with Phil's Tenacious.

I think she married a very wealthy doctor, tried to market her own line of products, failed, and faded from the limelight. I think the last time she was behind the camera was for the S.I. anniversary edition swimsuit shoot.

i've seen her selling stuff on TV. I forget what. I think there might be a brand of furniture with her name on it for something? Raymore & Flannigan? I could have googled it in the time it took to type this...

The cover on the US edition is mundane compared with that great pic above, however. I just pulled it down again. Time for another read. Good stuff.

The fork almost looks like it's backwards.

Are we talking pinups or bikes? Rossin and Cinelli had better pinups. Thanks for the NSFW pic, Mr Copple (RFC). A lawyer, to boot. I smell pro bono in your future.


For bikes, beat this:

I can't find it, but there was a great poster of Rebecca Twigg, when she was all of about 16. Sigh. Great image.

I find later images, but that one is MIA.

according to wikipedia, kathy ireland did not fail in marketing her own line:
"In 1993, Ireland put her name on a line of socks. After they proved a best-seller for Kmart, the retailer gave Ireland her own clothing line.[7] She then founded "Kathy Ireland Worldwide," a brand product marketing company in which she holds a majority stake.[8] By 2004, Ireland was marketing products from 16 manufacturers, including those of Standard Furniture.[7][9] Ireland's long-term exclusive contract with K-mart Corporation lasted until 2003, after which the company contracted with thousands of independent mid-tier retail stores for distribution.[10] By 2005, KIWW products were sold at over 50,000 locations in 15 countries, generating an estimated $1.4 billion in retail sales.[9] Ireland's annual take is thought to be around $10 million, which has prompted Forbes to name her the "prototype for model-turned-mogul," in an article about the trend of modelpreneurs.[11]"

I also like magazine shots in the 80's showing Lemond at speed, laid out in his typical to the Gitane team very horizontal upper body position during the TDF races. The shots just amplify the sense of speed and bicycling aerodynamic position when you look at them. Stephen Roche also had really nice full side shots racing on his Peugoet in the TDF series that he won. I also like Pascal Simon's shot in the mid 80's Peugeot brochures where he had his PY10FC lifted over his head. Now I wish I kept all those brochures, mags and books that had them!

What's scary is that I remember all of them like it was yesterday. When you are a kid with nothing going on beside school and racing, images like that are often burn onto one's hard disk ustairs. There's weren't too many pictures to go around back then in the states. Many were black and white. I remember that Jacques Boyer and Pascal Simon photo best.

When I was 14 or 15, one of my all favorite photo is of Hinault and Cyrille Guimard came over to the us to meet Lemond in full cowboy boots and hats. What the heck were they thinking. I love that photo. Wish I can see it again.

IIRC, she did marry money, but has had moderate success with her own product lines, starting with socks: https://www.kathyireland.com/legwearsolutions.html

Favorite photo? I kind of think this one defines what I'm all about:
