Also would like to add that this Fatcogs website and internet community would not exist if it were not for Doug Carter.

How's about a feature on some of the famous welders in FCC history and their handiwork, Prototypes, fave bikes etc ? The likes of Gary Helfrich, Scott Bengston et al. Then a feature about the product testing FCC did back in the day, race bikes, why some products were dropped etc. There's a huge interest in the mystery of what went on in Somerville bitd

The former topic is actually one Im working on right now! The latter is very intriguing! Any specific instances you're referring to?

Uuuummm good work Looking forward to that feature. For the latter, the Titanium SAB springs to mind, Titanium race bikes, other race bike features. Let's throw it out to the crowd...any other suggestions ? Also interested in a feature on the painters from back in the day. Who specialised in what paint jobs, how they were done pros/cons, custom jobs, Leni Fried etc A feature on all the quirky merchandise from Somerville/Glenn Falls would be interesting too.
