I'm not a Canuck, but I remember back in 1956 when I spent a few weeks in August in Vancouver racing and training on the China Creek Velodrome, there were conversations about the great deal one could get on CCM Nervex lug, 531 track frames. I vaguely remember seeing a couple of them and they were OK, not great. I continued on with my Frejus, purchased in NYC at Guildo's Bike Shop, the year before. But during the winter I bought a Cinelli track bike. Dave Staub Orange, Ca

I recently picked up a copy of "California Cyclist" from 1960... I think; I don't have it in front of me. In any case there is a cool shot of sombody (you maybe) getting a hand sling in a madison. You are on a Cinelli and the other guy is riding a Masi Special. Is that, in fact, you? Is that the Cinelli that you are refrring too?
