Speaking of bikes, does anyone know if Fuji still makes bikes?  Many 
years ago when I was riding, I tried a Fuji model that I really, really 
liked.  As a vertically challenged person :-) this model was 
particularly attractive because its front wheel was smaller than the 
back, so the fit was much better for me than other adult models.  And as 
I recall, everything else about it was pleasant ... fit and finish were 
good, it felt smooth and well integrated.  Not sure if I would be 
allowed to own one as I currently live in Rochester...
