In issue no.7 p.10-13, is the informative story, A FRENCH CYCLETOURING LEGEND, By Raymond Henry. I think the same article is availible in CYCLE HISTORY #9, Van der Plas Publications. It is state that Alex Singer was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1905 and emigrated to France in 1923.

I'm in the middle of reprinting a compilation of all the issues of Gabe Konrad's Aeoleus Butterfly and On The Wheel with Gabe's blessings. For those of you who missed them, Gabe printed a 'zine with a real ecliptic mix of stories and articles on vintage bikes. The first, Aeoleus Butterfly, was a xeroxed newsletter ('zine) and the second, On The Wheel, was a professional looking magazine that was even available at some book stores across the nation.

Sorely missed, but at least those of you who would like to "catch up" can do so. I let the list know when the compilation is available.
