  Richard Schwinn on steel bicycle frames
By Yokota Fritz 
Women's bike designer Georgena Terry interviewed Richard Schwinn on her t-chatter podcast. Schwinn covers everything from the downfall of domestic bicycle manufacturers in the early 1990's to the effects wrapping a PowerBar® around the top tube of your bike. If you want to know more about the differences between aluminum, carbon fiber and steel, take a listen at t-chatter. Download the 26MB MP3 file here of Richard Schwinn on steel: Where it went, where it is and where it's going in bicycle frames.

Richard Schwinn helped to found Waterford Precision Bicycles in 1993. His brother Ed Schwinn runs a business selling gift baskets in Chiccago.

  Outlaw on a Schwinn
By Yokota Fritz 
Ricky Martin of Fremont, CA ran a red light while riding his Schwinn bicycle.

Motorcycle Officer Daniel Harvey stopped Ricky, but then Ricky fled, trying to outrun the police Harley Davidson. The two "went in circles, went over center dividers and up on sidewalks," according to this Chronicle article. Unlike the mythical Outlaw in lycra, Ricky didn't get away from the law. He spent the night in the pokey for resisting arrest.
