Our book "The Golden Age of Handbuilt Bicycles" shows a 1935 Schulz in several color photos. The latest VBQ also has a review of the Schulz Funiculo derailleur.

The Schulz did not have the twin top tubes that Rentsch seems to have felt necessary to make his Galibier look a bit more conventional. Oh, and in VBQ Vol. 4, No. 1, there was a Schulz ad reproduced.
