Hi Tad,
Since you've worked in retail since 1984, you seem the best person to ask this in this category.  I have an old rear bike bag that attaches to the seat that I'd like to replace.  They don't seem to make them like this nowadays.  If I could identify the company, I might be able to find one on eBay.  I have spent an hour or more searching bicycle company logos on the net without success.  My local bike shop owner thought it was "Circlo Sports," but that is apparently wrong.  The image is of a bicycle rider with upper body angled parallel with road, in racing position, and the wheels of the bike are made into "C C".  I will try to attach 2 images.  If you can't ID this, perhaps you could run it by someone who might, or refer me to someone else.  Too bad Sheldon Brown is gone; I bet he'd have known.  Thanks.

Answer
This is going to drive me nuts since I know that logo but cannot think of the name. I was thinking your local shop owner is close and that it was Cyclo Sport, but that doesn't seem to go with the  "C - C"

I have a couple of old (circa 1982) Bicycling magazines that I might be able to find the logo.

They do make bags that attach to the seat, in fact the new mountings are very slick without having to fiddle with straps through the seat rails. You may want to check those out.

Give me a couple of days to look through the old mags and I will see if I can find the logo.

Brain storm! That was CPC, Cycle Products Company! A quick Google came up with Bikextras - Cycle Products, Co. There you go!

Expertise

I can help you with bicycle fitting problems (proper fit, numb hands, etc.), Buying help (Which type of bike, brand, so forth), basic repair problems (Flat tires, poor shifting, noises, etc.), technique questions (How to climb better, how to ride in traffic...), and even basic training questions (first race, long tour, or just a weight loss program). Some repairs are better left to the experts, we used to call this category "home repair gone bad." However, many fixes are simple and can be done by most. I will simply tell you if you should try it or take it to a shop. I will even help you ask the right questions when you walk into a shop so you can feel more confident. If I don't know an answer I can find out and get back to you.

Experience

I have worked in bicycle shops or the bicycle industry since 1984. I started racing around that time but rode bicycles and did some touring before that. I have managed large shops in the upper Midwest, been invited to join a professional team as mechanic, which I turned down so I could open my own shop. I have built wheels for two US National Champions. I have also been a consultant to retailers and manager of a bicycle fitting system company here in the US. My greatest joy is helping people get into riding and be more confident about their riding and bicycle.

Education/Credentials
Doesn't really apply but I do have a BA in English/History (Both very marketable - that is why I stayed in bicycles!) And had been working on my Master in Education before I thought better of that.
