Jobst Brandt Died
This news is a few days old but I thought I'd post it anyway. I didn't know much about Jobst Brandt, in fact, the only time I really heard anything about him at all was through the book, The Bicycle Wheel. I used it to build my very first wheel and continued to use it on many more. As it turns out, he was a very important part in the Avocet company, which made my favorite saddle, not to mention the best saddle of all time (according to my butt anyway), the Avocet o2 Air.
Apparently Jobst was way more famous in the world of bicycles than I knew, as are many others, and it seems as though he is one to be remembered.
