I live near Jim Farnsworth and was able to ride his bike on 2 different occasions.My most distinct memories are my knees hitting my chest and a different set of muscles feeling strained. His theory was that someone who wasn't a cyclist but in just average shape could get on one of his bikes and ride a century with no training. He told me he was very close to a licensing deal with Raleigh that fell through at the last minute. Steve
