Lou- I too have heard of (Angel) Rodriguez bikes, (Glenn) Ericksen bikes, and R& E bikes. Angel has liscensed out his name for the Rodriguez bikes, and they are still made in the shop below the R&E store, but he hasn't even stepped his foot in the store since the late 80s. I believe he is now in managment at REI. Glenn is still making beautiful frames with lugs that put Hetchins to shame, and for affordable prices as well. In the summer he leads tours over in Italy. Actual R&E bikes were made for a brief time in the early 70s, and to be honest with you, they never were at the level of Glenn's frames. Reasonable craftmanship, but more along the lines of Schwinn Paramounts. Probably more than what you wanted to know. Cheers, Dave Anderson Cut Bank MT
