Le Cycliste, April 1936

Old copies of cycling magazines are wonderful sources of information. In this issue of Le Cycliste (the premier cycle touring magazine of France) from April 1936, the adverts show us that the Cyclo Rosa chainset was available at that time in triple configuration in steel, either nickel or chrome plated. Fusion welded steel frames were available from the great Nicola Barra, whilst Reyhand were trumpeting their victory in the 1935 Criterium des Alpes. Another page includes the innovative bicycle design of Jacques Schulz, Le Chat front derailleurs, and Lefol mudguards. Lastly, for amusement, is the advertisement for Hutchinson’s new tyres for Tandems.
