I have spoken to some of my friends in Italy and they said that the fermo ruota came into existence with the Paris Roubaix gear with its claimed 5 cog freewheel capability. It gets mounted on the chainstay just in front of the drop-out. When not being used, it folds downwards and permits full access to the drop out. Once the wheel is in place, it gets folded into place infront of the drop out preventing the wheel from being able to be removed from the drop out. With this information, I went to The Dancing Chain and found an illustration on page 154.
