Subject: [CR]Latest Vintage Bicycle Quarterly

The latest VBQ was quite impressive. Probably more articles about women and their accomplishments than I have seen in one place in a long time. Lili Herse was sure a "looker", as was Jan Heine's tandem mate at Paris-Brest-Paris. No offense intended here folks. I don't want to start a war and I'm not about to talk about Jan to give equal time, other than to say he was a happy looking camper after the ride was over! I was worn out after reading Jaye's article about her and Jan's adventurous ride at PBP--first place, Mixed Tandem. All the articles were good, but the reports from the trials continue to fascinate me. The Rebour drawings are such that being isolated on a plane for 3 hours was the perfect time to study them in detail. I had never seen a "steering column lock". I want to say page 22, but again, typing from memory. While I couldn't be sure, it looked like an insert thru the backside of the headtube into the steering column to prevent the fork from being turned. Jan Heine or anyone else, comments? Another nice job on your publication Jan. Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
