How Mystery of Mountain Bike Pioneer Mike Rust’s Death Was Finally Solved

The Hall inducted Rust in 1991.

Mike Rust leading the pack.

Here’s the site’s Rust biography:

A native of Colorado Springs, Mike grew up in a large family (5 brothers and 1 sister). He began building bicycles at an early age; his first was when he was in the seventh grade. This bicycle had a cruiser frame, sturmey-archer 3-speed hub, 40 degrees laced to a 36 degree 26 x 1.75 rim, 3-speed stick shifter and a banana seat.

In 1965, Mike built a mountain bike with a stingray frame, 20-inch wheels, knobby tires (front back), flat handlebars and a leather saddle, which he launched off the front porch. His next bicycle was a used French 8-speed with 2 chainwheels and a 4-cog free wheel to which he added “curldown” dropbars.

After a 5-year romance with his motorcycles, Mike rediscovered bicycles, became a USCF licensed racer

FBI, NHSP Searching Location For Woman Missing Since 1980

MANCHESTER, NH — The Federal Bureau of Investigation and New Hampshire State Police are in Manchester today searching a wooded area of the city hoping for clues in a nearly four decade missing person case. Investigators are looking for Denise Daneault, who went missing in 1980 at the age of 25. Jeffrey Hastings of Frame of Mind Photography reported on Facebook that state troopers, the FBI, and the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office had brought in a specialized search group – Bay Area Recovery Canines – to help with the investigation which is in the West End of the city, in an area known as the “black acres.”

Burger Battle round 3: An underdog advances to the Final Four

In the third round of Burger Battle 2017, we sent teams of three judges to try three burgers at each joint. Not three burgers apiece, although a couple of judges would have gone for that.

The results were telling. One place is definitely on a roll. There’s another that’s having a good-luck streak — or, rather, its competitors have combined for a bad-luck streak. And there is a former champ that has made it to the Final Four — our only former champ to do so — but is showing some vulnerability.

Although there were only four match-ups, there’s a lot to get to. So here we go …

9 Chilling Missing Person Cases From History That Are Almost Too Hard To Believe

8The Eilean Mor Lighthouse Keepers

Peter Standing/Wikimedia Commons

On Dec. 26, 1900, the ship Hesperus, captained by James Harvey, was traveling to the lighthouse at Eliean Mor, an uninhabited island that was part of the Flannan Islands located in the Outer Hebrides, Scotland. The lighthouse keepers were the only folks meant to be present on the island; in fact, the Hesperus was actually transporting a replacement lighthouse keeper, Joseph Moore, to Eliean Mor.

When they arrived, however, the lighthouse was empty.

A horn blast and a flare sent up to alert the lighthouse keepers to their arrival went unanswered — and when Moore actually made landfall and arrived at the lighthouse itself, he found the door unlocked. Several oil skin coats near the door were missing; there was a partially eaten meal and an overturned chair in the kitchen; and

New Appeal For South Jersey Girl, 12, Who Went Missing 21 Years Ago

Police have made a new appeal in the case of a 12-year-old pregnant South Jersey girl who went missing 21 years ago.

Willingboro police this week released an aged-enhanced depiction of Celina Mays, who would be 33 years old today.

Mays was reported missing on Dec. 16, 1996 from her residence in Willingboro. At the time of her disappearance, she was 12 years old and approximately 9 months pregnant, according to police.

This photo is how she looked in 1996.

Her sister, Noreal Mays, told ABC5 it would be better to know her state of being, “if she was with us or not with us.” The identity of the baby’s father is also not clear.

Police say at the time of her disappearance, Celina’s family and the strict church they attended in Mount Holly “were less than cooperative.” according to ABC6.

“If you are 12 and nine months

The chief , who is not related to the victim, said Thursday that he’d found potential evidence in the Miller’s former home in the 200 block of Penn Street that has been sent to a lab.

5 Disturbing Clues In Missing Person Cases That Will Keep You Up At Night

These disturbing clues are baffling. In all five cases, leads went cold, and the person was never found.

1. The Romance Novel

On the morning of August 4, 1981, 20-year old Cynthia Anderson went to work at a law firm in Toledo, Ohio, where she was employed as a legal secretary.

Later in the day, her employers realized she had vanished. Her car was parked outside but her car keys and purse were missing. A romance novel was on her desk, open to a scene where the heroine is abducted at knifepoint.

There have been many other theories about what happened to Cynthia. Police received an anonymous tip that Cynthia was being held against her will in the basement of a white house. Then, one of the attorneys at Cynthia’s firm was involved in drug dealing and went to prison. Both these facts drummed up
