Pic of the Day 29th May Koblet's 1951 Campy derailleurs
Not the greatest clarity, but this pic shows the Campy derailleurs on Koblet's 1951 TdF-winning bike. The shift levers (not shown) were bar-end.
Note the long (Paris-Roubaix?) dropouts, full length housing, Campy der
cable clamps, the rear derailleur bolted onto the middle of the dropout, and
the axle stop bolted onto the middle of the left dropout.
