calls attention of bicyclists to the fact
that animal oils are very destructive to
rubber products, such as bicycle tires.
It makes no difference how good the

injures the rubber. A careful exami­

they are partially of animal origin.
Mineral oils are not nearly so apt to
injure the rubber. In fact, many of
