    It was called the "All American Meal", with change back from your dollar. I remember it cause my family had a restaurant back then and we took cues from Ronalds advertising.

    Single speed "ONE GEAR" & no hand breaks visible -
    possibly Fixed Gear or also Known as "FIXIE" ----
    Rider uses muscles pushing in reverse on pedals
    to slow bike - very fast very dangerous- Fixie Bikes
    are usually only ridden by very good riders ........

    What's "insane" about bicycle clothing? YOu wear special, i.e. "unusual or odd clothingfor fishing, hunting, playing tennis, running track, etc.

    Someone a little insecure about what THEY'D look like in spandex?:D

    I was thinking the same....like a more worldly :cool: vibe in the body language than what what we had in the 60's.

    When I was around 12 or 13 ( couple centuries ago) I had a "minimalist" bike that I had removed everything related to brakes, fenders, and so on. I used to jam my shoe between the frame and rear wheel for braking. In a summer I wore down 2 rear tires and had a nice slot on my left tennis sole. The greatest gig was to arrive at full speed, jam the rear wheel and came to a screeching halt, the longer and louder the better. Ah. the good old days!!.

    nope :D


    I'm sure I'd look like a dork :D I regularly do an hour street/trail ride on my old rigid street bike in my normal attire, even on epic cross country rides it's never occurred to me I needed spandex and I resent paying for someone else's advertising.
