Thanks for this post Tom. Reminds me I've got to get the finishing touches on the Romic website I've been talking about for a long time now. It's close - I've collected facts and stories and a set of three video interviews with Ray. I'll let you all know when it goes live.
There is a quoted paragraph describing the bike in which there is one
sentence that stuck out. Ray worked at Schwinn before starting Romic,
but I've never heard he DESIGNED the schwinn paramount. Can anyone
comment on this?
