Brian, thank you very much for this information. I remember George and Suzy as a vital young people who had just had a baby. It's shocking to think that 30 some years have passed. I was in high school when I worked at Stoke's Spokes and I just turned 50 last month. How time flies...

I knew George and Suzy. My former partner at Wizard Cycles, Mike Howard was really good friends with them. Mike mentioned to me in a recent conversatio n that both George and Suzy have passed away. I didn't know them well enough to know much of their personal life or offspring. Sorry to have to pass on the bad news.

IÊ¼m trying to connect with the roots of my bicycle interest and I wonder if the list may be able to help.
About 1975 I worked at a small Huntington Beach, CA bike shop named StokeÊ¼s Spokes. The owner of the store was George Stok es. I heard that after closing the store George became a team mechanic for a Bell helmet racing team. Has anyone heard of him or the shop?
Also, George and his wife Suzy had a son named Todd who I heard became a talented junior racer. IÊ¼ve looked up the name and found a Todd Stokes who seems to be a bicycle racing writer in Ireland. Does anyone know if there is a connection?
