the ads below ran in weeklies like "bicycling world", "the l.a.w. bulletin", and just about every other cycling publication of the day. every now and again, an ad strayed slightly from this format, but in general, m & w kept to this trademark copy style.

"65 out of every 100 wheels built in '96 have the morgan & wright quick repair tire"
"ask dealers and riders what our guarantee means"
"concerning speed" (records held by m & w tires)
"heres johnnie johnson - he rides them fast"
"easy to distinguish our quick repair tire its stem is red..."
"our s2 tire weighs 1 1/2 pounds"
"our track tire is j-u-s-t a little the nicest you ever raced on"
"racing men say our rubber toe clip is 'the best thing that ever happenned'"
"they hold..." (records held by m & w tires)
