The shop sticker that was originally on mrs non-fixies "Altra"-branded Méral.

From what I have been able to find online, Jac.'s son Pax Ligtvoet was one of the founders of the Altra brand, basically a procurement cooperation for member bike shops.

I used to call on this shop back in my repping days. Can't recall if they sold both brands but it certainly is possible and other Schwinn dealers were also Trek dealers. Another possibility is that stores selling used and/or consignment bikes would put their shop stickers on.

This one was on a Marin Palisades Trail that I found at the curb yesterday. I used to call on this shop back in my repping days. Nice folks. I probably sold them this bike and later sold them the Giant bar ends that are on it.
