Connie and I own a half dozen of these quaint mirrors. We bought several for the first time at a Folks On Spokes ride many years ago. They are the essence of simplicity and the very soul of practicality. Sometimes when you a find a solution that works you don’t tinker with it.

Like Dan Henry he was a man who offered a singular solution to the sport of cycling that has really stood the test of time. Henry’s road markings are not nearly as spiffy as some of the ones that came afterwards, but they worked.

We keep losing folks from the cycling community who have been giants in their field.
