"Fixed-gear bicycles, without gears or brakes were created for the controlled environment of a velodrome."
thats wrong. They were created before velodromes were around.
I wish I could leave comments there.
Chain drive bicycle = c.1885
Freewheel = c. 1903

I just did a little wiki research:
The first diamond-frame "Safety Bicycle" was invented in 1885
The first velodrome was built in Paris in 1893
Ive looked all over the place for some way to communicate with Oobject but
the best I can do is find the owner's email address on who-is
