In my post on cycling apparel the other day, I completely neglected any mention of wool! Thank you to those leaving comments to correct my oversight.
Freewheeling spirit posted his thoughts on wool and included this gem from the 1992 Bridgestone catalog.
As many of you know, Grant Petersen was USA director of marketing for Bridgestone in the early 90s, and the USA Bridgestone catalogs were a kind of predecessor to the
Lauterbrunnental Leaflet Rivendell Reader, where Petersen continues his promotion of retro / practical bike craft.
