Subject: [CR]Pic of the Day - Circular Spokes

Fifty-Three Years Ago - Tying spokes together with one continuous loop.

I'm leaving this image blown-up 200% to help see the details - remember to click on "Full Size". Sorry for the graininess. Mlle. Lapoire and Mssr. Nivonnait set a new Hour Record for Mixed Tandem at the Cipale (?), covering 43.884 kms. Note the pairs of circular wires connecting spokes on both front and rear wheels. Anyone familiar with this technique? From "But et Club - Le Miroir des Sports" No.429, 12 October 1953.
