Thank You, Al!

schwinn sting ray

Al Fritz, the creator of the Schwinn Sting-Ray, passed away last week.

The Sting-Ray was my first two-wheeler.  Mine was metallic blue with sparkle grips and banana seat.  I rode it everywhere.  Sometimes it was a horse when I was cowboy, sometimes a Jeep when I was in the Army. Sometimes it was just a bike that I raced with my friends in the neighborhood.  The Sting-Ray started my lifelong love affair with bicycles.

So thank you, Al!
