Everest Oroblacksand.aotearoa03/26/2015 12:56 PM
Interesting - I have a 5 cog version; 16-18-20-23-26. I wonder if someone has removed a 14-16 & replaced it with a 16. The cone & freewheel core are not recessed below theouter sprocket, as is the case in these photos. I've just replaced it with another 5 sprocket Caimi Everest (13-16-20-23-28), which appears to have the outer two sprockets as a single piece, and the recess as above.
Trivelox A-1Sparrow03/25/2015 11:07 PM
not a unique design. the sliding sprocket concept is present at the dawn of the derailleur. see Edmund Hodgkinson's Gradient. the implementation evolves (Terrot, Gabriel Hervier) notably by getting rid of overly complicated chain management. the design arrives at a form readily recognizably similar to the trivelox before WWI. the other fun bit is, this makes the cassette well over 100 years old. b

For clarity: the hubs are both Uniglide and Hyperglide compatible. It is threaded for both internal or external lock rings.

I think this stem's clamp size might more justly be called 25.8mm, that in-between size which attempts to handle both 25.4 & 26.0. My example of this stem with the clamp relaxed and the faces completely parallel, measured just a hair under 26.0.
Harden "bacon slicers"Duralite03/25/2015 01:26 PM
New, boxed Harden hubs in the 1950s had a large brown tag attached advising frequent relubrication, approximately every two hundred miles in wet, gritty conditions.
Altenburger (push rod style)Sparrow03/25/2015 12:11 PM
this is the early version. the later version is square matchbox style with a slimmed down clamp band and longer cage. b
Altenburger ChampionSparrow03/25/2015 11:51 AM
Dancing Chain 2nd Ed says derailleur in production to 1975. 3rd Ed. says 1960. I have seen a natty version with red anodized cage. leads this one to think first date closer to 'struth. have been told some of the 1961 german TdF team rode altenburger, the rest F&S. sounds like collaborative german democracy to me. I have a copy of a team picture. some wear Torpedo jerseys. some wear Altenburger shorts with Afri-Cola caps. b

I'm restoring one now that has a manufacturing code of QG which I believe would make it July of 1974. So they are even a little older than reported above.
Blumfield DuraliteDuralite03/23/2015 04:11 PM
Blumfield Duralite hubs were nicely designed and manufactured. They were well regarded by cyclists and mechanics during the 1950s, at least in the Midlands and in the Manchester area. Blumfield Duralite hubs have felt seals. They were known to resist rainy conditions much better than Harden hubs, and didn't need to be relubed as often. High flange versions have 3" (about 75mm diameter) flanges in the rear and 2.5" (about 65mm) flanges in the front. I have a set of high flange Duralites that are drilled for 36 spokes front and rear. The rear hub is threaded on both sides; it will take a fixed cog and a 1.29" x 24 TPI left-hand thread lock ring on either side.
