Russell Bulgin was a terrific automotive writer who also covered bicycles beautifully. A graceful and wide ranging writer, he died at a very young age, in 2002. If you’ve never read his stuff, search it out. I found out about him when his work started appearing in Autoweek, but he’d been in CAR and other publications years before that.
A sad loss, but someone I was glad to have shared the planet with.
You could do worse than starting with Mr. Green’s write up, but do search out Bulgin’s cycling work too!
