Harvey, Sheldon Brown actually has a few words about these bikes on his Web-site: http://www.sheldonbrown.com/otb.html I also remember hearing about them from people at the AYH office/store in Manhattan and from Boston natives I met at youth hostels - this was during the '60s. I never actually saw one though and at the time considered them to be something of an urban myth. (Please bear in mind that I was just a teenager then and with that name - OTB, that is - and the mysterious identity of the actual builder(s), it was just too much for my limited perspective.) Yet they're still pretty mysterious to me and I still haven't seen one. But at least I'm meeting people who have actually owned and ridden them. Best regards, Fred Rednor - Arlington, Virginia
