Revisiting the Huffy Aerowind Bicycle and the Brawny Man

We were feeling a little bit nostalgic today (or was it cheesy ?), that we decided to go on the hunt for some cycling kitsche.

We no sooner hit the inter-webs that we discovered this chestnut, a vintage commercial showcasing the 1981 Huffy Aerowind road bike complete with the harmony of one-hit wonder Christopher Cross’ Ride Like the Wind as fitting background music. 

After watching the video, we couldn’t help but be impressed with Huffy’s prescience with regard to foreshadowing the emergence of the whole aero bike segment that would come to define today’s industry.     

However, the thing that grabbed us the most, was the fact that we were unaware of just how much of an accomplished cyclist the Brawny Man was.  

Then again, he was the Quicker Picker Upper.  🙄
