This would be the only time I would excuse someone for getting the dreaded chain grease on their leg.

I'd have gotten one for my youngest - were she still small enough to use it...

I was reading the latest copy of UK magazine Cycling+ when I came across a WD40 advert. Here's a non-excellent reproduction. I don't think the ad agency is up-to-speed on latest road cycling styles, this photo must date from the mid 90s? Details to amaze:
- that sack-like jersey
- super-high super-stretched position
- mismatched wheels.

Nothing against the product, mind, I use it myself.

Maybe the advertising budget was limited so they looked up "bicycle rider" on a 90's CD of "Royalty Free Stock Images" ?

Also, the crank/gears are on the wrong side. Its possible they used a mirrored image, but still...
