|where have all the moustaches in cycling gone?||Spirito|

|looking thru some ye olde cycling posters and noticed the best riders had very spruced and fashionable moe's - was it an early form of performance enhancement or was it thought to be more aero?
i think its cool and in my mind if i had a picture of slipstream and ahimsa it would be the one below - the only thing is i am not sure who is who. any ideas?

|A MEAL, they both must be Ahisma since he is the chef. |
Used to have a beard but shaved it because I got tired of removing the protein that accumulated after those long rides.
i how about the wheelmen who used to terrorize Central Park in the 1890s. NYC's finest would issue speeding & reckless riding tickets to them, so I guess the ol' moustachios may have been more function than fashion. ;>)

|1976 book 'winning bicycle racing'(an excellent read) and noticed most of the 70's American racers pictured there are sporting 'stashes too. The style must be on a century re-cycle cycle...
Did find this bearded fellow lurking around though.....(no this isn't a picture of me...! geesh)
First to name hime gets road swag!!

|but i wouldn't let him near my children if i had any...if you know what i mean...he did spend a lot of time in and around boston...
i guess im just proving my bias and societies preconceptions with regard to facial hair i suppose. but that pic gives me the creeps.
but ive spoken to him and he is a lovely man and im sure im very wrong about how he appears.
|Eh. That's nothin'. Here's the real S. Brown.||Ahimsa|
