All: To add a little bit more info... R&E continues to make frames. Estelle Gray who managed the shop many years before going to Suntour here in Seattle for a while... bought it out of bankruptcy from a local bike entepreneur who tried to accumulate too shops about 10 years ago. (We lost the Pine Street Pro shop then too (His loss was my gain as I picked up a custom Glenn Erickson built Rodriguez tourer for 10% of its listed selling price...and it will never be on eBay.)
Matt Houle of Bicycle Specialties builds Rodriguez bikes for Estelle and R&E under an interesting contract arrangement, but does great work and is very creative.
BTW, Angel continues to be in sport business as I believe he remains on the
board of REI (Recreational Equipment Inc..the Co-op here in Seattle).
