While talking to my friend Pat in the coffee shop this morning, he told me that Craig made the first MTB for Charlie Kelly, but unhappy with the bike, Charlie went to Tom Ritchey. Craig's bike was more conventional than that funky 20"er that we remember. This bike that Craig made for Charlie was built before Breeze made his first batch of ten. chris ioakimedes Fairfax California

> I knew Craig as well but as I remember Doug White bujilt the first 20" wheel off road-don't call it a mountain-bike. We were living in Oak Manor and just up the street was one of the fire roads. Like Craig's-and Victor's- it doesn't count because of the 20' wheels. I remember the Sofa Cycle recumbent as well. Doug built one too and used to ride it from Pt Reyes to Fairfax.
