Back "in the day" I had a PT job at Georgena Terry's which included being the schlepper at out of town shows and rallies. G.T. always gave credit to Bill for the smaller front wheel design whenever somebody suggested she came up with it.

BTW, Janet (my wife) has the '84 prototype for the 52cm dual 700c. She's bringing to Cirque this year.
