Readers? What ads do you remember, there’s a lot of them. Bicycle ads, of course, have existed as long as bikes have. Like the one for Daws Bicycles. Some bike ads we won’t see here in the States, like Duffy riding a fixie through the grocery store, drinking a Diet Coke. Duffy gots some good bike handling skills, who knew?
