My braze version shifts a 53/42/30t tripple
Campagnolo Athenareippuert09/22/2018 11:31 AM
Proberbly the best C record era rear deraillure shifting better than than the simple Record-180 and the over enginered Croce d'Aune and Chorus. Even short a cage is capable of shifting a 30-32t sproket depending on frame dropout. It's Campy's first attempt on a slant paralellogram like Suntour and evey modern deraillure out there. Due to its stiffness (and weight) it offers very precice, imposible to destroy. Pull ratio is compatible with Simplex retrofriction. The paralellogram is capable of moving all the way to the inner sprocekt of a modern 9-10-11-12 speed casette. just dont loose the 5 posítion stop ring da lets you adjust I do belive it also exist in a mediaum/long cage variant for tripple.
Campagnolo Rally (with Nuovo Record paralellogram)TheChief09/16/2018 03:11 PM
I purchased a Campy Rally derailleur with the NR plate in the early 1980s from a bike shop in Amsterdam. Unfortunately I do not have this anymore - it somehow disappeared during one of my Army moves. I did have another with the regular Rally plate that I am still using.
GB steel spearpointabuhugh09/16/2018 05:22 AM
As with most of their stems before the various metric-spec alloy models started to appear in the mid 60s with model names, GB do not really seem to have given their earlier stems distinct model designations. So 'spearpoint' really just describes the design rather than being a formal model. The catalogues just talk about 'steel stems' initially and then call them 'straight stems' to distinguish them from underslung and dropped types that appeared a bit later. But general consensus now seems to use the term 'Spearpoint' as a model name which seems a useful practical approach. Although superficially similar, the steel and alloy Spearpoint stems had design differences, the most notable being that the alloy stems had an oval cross-section extension (presumably to give vertical stiffness) whereas the extension tube was round on the steel models.
GB Toni Merken 531abuhugh09/15/2018 04:59 AM
qd-s is correct about the name of the Dutch rider after whom this stem is called but, inexplicably, GB themselves called this stem 'Toni Merken' without the 's'!
GB Girder sectionabuhugh09/14/2018 04:25 PM
These photos show both the longer (and much rarer) 2¾" stem which is in the 1947 leaflet but is not featured in later surviving catalogues and the shorter 1¾" one. I have one of the longer ones on my 1953 (original condition) Sun Manxman. It is the 1¾" 'girder' stem (photos 5 & 7) that is still featured in the 1966 catalogue but disappears after that date. GB continued to use the girder design for their shortest-extension stem but relied on their classic spearpoint, oval-section model for longer extensions from the mid 50s onwards, with a 2¾" spearpoint stem appearing then and a 2" spearpoint-type introduced at about the time the 1¾" girder-type disappears. Perhaps, as the fashion for riding proportionally smaller frames developed, requiring longer stem extensions, demand for these very short lengths fell off after the mid 60s. Also, as confidence grew in the strength of tubular alloy extensions, the need for the stronger but proportionally heavier girder design lessened (steel tubular stems were made in significantly longer extensions from an earlier date - and much favoured by track riders).

I had the racing version of these. Just imagine the same pedal with the outer end chopped off. Superb! Unfortunately they are long gone.

I have a set of Sportman hubs engraved as such on a 1963 or 1964 Gitane Hosteller. World logo with Sportman stamped below.
