A-1 Meats Small Wheels.
Wheels for Cult Followers.
I'm not sure why I scanned this one so I'm just going to get it out of the way. It might have a little to do with my ongoing fascination to find the smallest wheels made. If you took a ruler to the paper magazine page, the wheels are at actual size, as the ad claimed. At the time, 45mm would have been on the smaller side of things. I'm sure there were other wheels clocking in at 52mm. I remember getting some wheels at 55mm and that seeming like a big step away from what I had been riding. Realistically, 52mm is still functional, but I'm saying anything under 50mm starts to get dumb.
