Cyclists today look very much like the cyclists of 1933. Cool, huh? Spectators no longer dress in suits and ties, however.

How so?

Back then, no helmet, regular looking shirt and shorts, biking shoes and straps; often carried spare tires over their shoulder.

Today, helmet, skin tight jersey and shorts, clip in shoes/pedals, that's it.

Interesting how in the early days they wore them silly riding goggles, by the 40s that seemed to die out, and no one wore any kind of eye protection, then in the late 80s it came back with those oh my god what were they thinking ski goggles (worse coupled with headbands), then finally fairly normal sunglasses. While im not a fan of the look of sunglasses its no fun riding without anything covering the eyes unless you happen to be riding slow.

Until a few weeks ago, I always rode with carpenters' goggles. The wind gets in my eyes and so does dust.

These new glasses are big enough that they keep the wind out of my eyes. I was careful to get all-plastic glasses, which are safer in crashes than metal frames.

Thanks Elev12k, fantastic link! Are you a vintage Saab fan too? My sweetheart was a 1970 Saab 95.

Bartali was a hero of mine and my first race bike was a Legnano.

I can see what he's talking about. The riding positions are the same, placement of the hands when coasting, stuff like that. Take away the hair/dress/bike and you have a bike-rider.

Sweet!

But the scans could use some work, eg

I dunno - I rather like seeing the color of aged newsprint. After a fee years, the acidic newsprint gets brittle and yellows badly. The black and white may be "cleaner" and more true to the original printing, but the current state of printing is what it is. Think of it like a bikeframe with patina!

Total agreement here. They are scanned by Wim. Many thanks to Wim when he is reading this.

Yes, I am. Not particularly Vintage. For new car they would be my choice too in their segments. I do own a 1992 900i-16. The fastback model, also known as combi coupe. Excellent bike hauler and very reliable.

Hello! Thanks fot the compliments. Meanwhile I have arrived putting up to 1937 at my WEBsite.

Kimmo, you suggested that the scans could be improved. And you showed an example. But what is improved your way. The scan are of authentic magazines and those days it was like that, Brown or Green.

An item I would like to bring up is the way those Cyclists were riding there bike. The saddle often close to the upper tube and a "Sit" not as I would prefer it. No KOPS method those days probably.
(KOPS = Knee Over Pedal System BTW also under discussion)

sorry to disabuse you all, it sounds hostile, but I am really past the age of caring.

Vintage cars were built before 1931. Period. End of definition.
A 1970s Saab or Porsche is not vintage. That is an absolute.
A 1941 Cadillac is not vintage.
You can call the Cadillac Post-vintage, 'cos it is.
Call the 60s Triumphs or the 70s Porsches/Saabs 'classics' but the one thing they are most definitely not is VINTAGE

As for 1980s and 90s Mazdas, well, sorry guys, I dunno. NZ teenagers call them 'old school' which in itself is a form of irony or oxymorony, I don't know which. But, again, they are most certainly NOT vintage

I am sounding like a certain esteemed member when we had a similar discussion over the term 'Path Racer', and I know Picchio will take that as a compliment, because he was right and I am right

this is a vintage car.. http://www.jonathan-wood.co.uk/html/_0.html

Amazing job if he gets it done, looks like his hosting is down.

I have roughly 100 cyling magazines from the 70's and early 80's which are very intresting to read and they have great photography. I am surprised at how little demand there is for them on ebay. I have been thinking about scanning mine in and posting them here, but its a bit of a mamoth task

Thanks for all your hard work odyseus3, thats very cool, my main interest is 1970-75, so If you have anything from that era I will be super psyched, of course I find the 50s and 60s interesting as well and I'll probably spend quite a few nights looking at all this!
