A great moment in modern history, two black men standing up against racism and abuse at home in a medal ceremony abroad.
Unfortunately, both paid dearly for their free speech at the hands of the very country representing itself as "free" and fighting against totalitarianism in Vietnam. I like to think they've been vindicated by history, however.
A salute...to Tommie Smith and John Carlos!

The most obvious aspect of the se bicycle frames is a very lo w weight thats comparable to carbon track frame at a much l ower cost. While freewheel pic kup can lag, they light up ver y quickly once locked in. They ﬂick and lift arou nd effortlessly on the trail.
