General Information
From The Dancing Chain: The 1938 British Cyclo Star, available until 1947, had two pulleys offset from the pivot and a single cable. It had 3 speeds, with a range from 13 to 23 teeth.

The Star was a replacement of the Sinclo (variant of the original Cyclo Standard) as it did not sell well. To demonstrate the reliability of the Star, Miss Evelyn Hamilton rode 100 miles for 100 days compiling a total of 10,704 miles
