    Okay, I haven't been doing that much with bikes for more than the last 3 or 4 years, but I have
    noticed something: All these 10-speeds (road bikes from the bike boom) from the 70's-80's that I've
    been riding look so much alike. Schwinn, Sekai, Matsushita Electric, etc... I realise that the
    bicycle industry is rife with imitation (to put it nicely), but did this frame design stem from one
    common ancestor?

    I doubt I'm doing a good job of transcribing this question which has been bouncing around my
    head--so have me elaborate, I'll be lurking.

    Gentle cycle only, Adam Rush
