    Bicycling magazine, June 1982

    A customer just handed me a few magazines, MBA and M&CB from 1991 and a single 1982 Bicycling. It happens to be the issue where North America's premier cycling mag acknowledges that mountain biking is the coming thing. I'll scan more when I have time, but here's the cover and my favorite picture from the main article.

    I'm the guy in the baseball cap on the cover. Bicycling had internal conflicts over a cover where no one is wearing a helmet, but apparently the good guys won.

    Here is a scan of the article that included the photo of Gary and Erik.

    I thought it was probably you, little hard to tell with the shadow / my bad eyes though.

    Thanks for posting! Nice of them to mention Jim Merz. Also nice of oldmountainbikes.com to host such a wonderful website and taking the time to gather up so much information.

    " at about 28 lbs, today's klunkers are almost as light as today's drop handlebar sport bikes"

    Love that quote.

    Right side of the photo is Larry Souza, riding a converted cruiser frame, probably a Cook Brothers or Laguna. The woman next to him was a friend of the photographer, Dave Epperson, and I believe she might have been riding his Ritchey. I'm on my red Ritchey with all gold and black trim, Denise Caramagno is on my Breezer #2, and barely visible behind her is Mike Flanagan on a Ritchey.
