Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Yes, ther WAS once a Team Huffy. I can assure you that those bikes were NOT the piles of cr@p which they used to make in Celina, Ohio.

Before huffy was huffy, werent they known has Huffman? (or something on thoes lines...)

IIRC Huffman (pre-huffy) bikes were top quality, however very few were produced. Anyone have info on this? Maybe its time for me to do some homework

The existance of this article was brought to my attention by David Coulon Burns (dcb1995) after looking at a picture of my wifes 1949 Dayton. The URL for "First Flight is:
