I can add a little on the beginnings of Cinetica. I did look at his initial product offering while most of it was in the prototype stage. I am pretty sure that was in the fall of '88. He had a folding floor pump which could be carried on the frame in a purpose built bag, a bar and stem and a few other small items, which unfortunately have leaked out of the memory banks. At this point in life, my hard drive needs some cleaning....I do remember him coming by with Denise de la Rosa who was paling around with Andrea in that era. Bob Freeman, if you are out there can you shed any more light on this? I had the impression that Andrea was in Seattle frequently during his start up.
