 Harlan Meyers and his Hi-E products represent the principle of "Yankee Ingenuity"

      Harlan Meyers making adjustments to a Cosmopolitan" Hi-E aluminum bike. That's Steve Dayton of Indianapolis/ Speedway Wheelmen, wearing his 1971 Senior Road champion jersey.

      "I remember that bike. It creaked so loud you always knew where Steve was, and when he was attacking. But it was very light for the time."   Bill Brissman
