I have "sideways" observed Peter Oulette pop up in the bicycle industry in various enterprises over the last 15 years or more. He first appeared at some NY bike shows as a custom builder with fancy lugs amongst his offering.. Then I seem to remember his venturing into a semi-high production Serotta style make-a-bunch-o-bikes mode, which didn't succeed.... I also seem to remember him hooked up for a year or two with another outfit as "bike designer." Surely other CR industry folks (Larry? Chuck? Richie?) might recall more accurate details and what happened to him... An even fainter recollection is perhaps he also has a bike shop in the Northeast...
