Fast Digs Update: LA Wheelmen, 3 October 1893

Members of the Los Angeles Wheelmen, wearing their distinctive black diamond kit, line up with their bikes before a 25-mile race at the Los Angeles Agricultural Park on the 3rd of October 1893. Note the height of those top tubes; we certainly don't size bikes like that these days (for good reason). The LA Agricultural Park would later be known at Exposition Park - more on that in a future Fast Digs update.
