    Great story!
    Interesting that a change to more functional clothing and passion for cycling was a turning point for reform. I giggle at the word "pantaloons" but this lady led the way by choosing to wear clothing that gave her more physical freedom and ultimately making it more socially acceptable for women to cycle.

    You mean even back then they were worried about correct fit and baggies and such?

    Great story by the way.

    ^^Nice pic! I agree on the suspension, but killer footpegs and bars she's got.
