To celebrate its 125th anniversary, the League of American Bicyclists convened a panel of judges to select the top 25 change agents in American cycling history. At Interbike, the League announced that Lance Armstrong had the most influence on American cycling. Other names on the list include Greg LeMond, Schwinn, Shimano, and Gary Fisher.
Velonews has lots of bike pictures too. There's a singlespeed cross bike (!) from Bianchi -- I suspect it's built more for city riding than actual cyclocross. Other urban bikes include several offerings from Raleigh such as the fat tire P.U.B. bike (featuring a built-in bottle opener), and the fixed gear Rush Hour for $600.
