Since I am new am I allowed to ask questions that most of you know the answer. If you want to respond to me specifically on my email that would be great. Timelines are scarce on the Internet - At what point did European racers stop using fixed gear bikes and switch to gearing? These first gear bikes I take it were the rod shifted type in the early 50s? When was the front derailleur introduced? What was its form? I also am curious how High flange was around early then low flange then high again is there any dates to correspond with what was fashionable and when?
