Subject: [CR] Bicycle Quarterly Brake Contest - SOLUTION


In the Winter 2008 issue, Bicycle Quarterly had a contest - the first reader to offer an accurate and complete description how the "Funiculo" brake on the 1935 Schulz works won a prize.

The contest was open to all via our web site. The solution was published in the Spring 2009 issue. Now it has been posted online as well:

And no, the Schulz (Funiculo) brakes are not an April Fool's joke - they work very well indeed.
