The only problem with reading old cycling magazines is that you end up with more questions than answers ! - From an advert in a 1957 copy of "Cycling" ;

--------- "The First Choice of Champions

BRAMPTON DERAILLEUR CHAIN Made in France

Tour of France

1954 1st Individual - L.Bobet Best Climber - Bahamontes

1956 1st Individual - R.Walkowiak 1957 1st Individual - Anquetil

Be like the champions - fit a Brampton derailleur chain for this year's racing !

RENOLD CHAINS LTD - MANCHESTER" -------- Okay - what was the connection between Brampton chains (made in France) and Renold Chains in the UK ?
