    It still looks so timeless and elegant. I have honestly never seen a first generation QR that Tullio Campagnolo designed/made. Thanks to you IAB and your buddy for posting the pics.

    I like the little antennae. Which morphed into the little loop on later Campy QR's.

    Sadly, the little antennae on the QR nut had to go on later models.....As the CPSC would have thought that they would hook your balls or adam's apple and kill you if you crash your bike......or maybe poke your eye out too.....

    Cool, it's like the predecessor to those wing-nut skewers, I guess. Those are pretty cool too, but this one's better.

    Thanks for the photos. I am surprised nobody has "re-issued" something similar.

    Beautiful piece of cycling history... and a great illustration for when people ask if you can use a QR with a fixed hub.

    When Tulio designed this it was so he could make faster wheel flips during races... when one would ride fixed to the top and then flip the wheel to run an ss freewheel on the way down.

    Very cool! Interesting that it says both FB and Campagnolo on it. I guess Brevi were making them using Campagnolo's patent?

    Sweet! I bet that's original chrome. I am consistently amazed at how well Campy chrome holds up.

    Maybe you could offer the pics to Velobase? - I don't see any listed there. The 'antennae' are somewhat similar to the NDS fastener on the Cambio Corsa setup:

    And I wonder if there were originally springs?

    Are those screw slots in the ends of the antennae, or dog bones?

    Screw slots. You can see them a bit better on HiCampy's site.

    http://www1.ocn.ne.jp/~campa/newpage8.htm

    Except HiCampy says he had to get repros for his QR. And if you look at the parts pictures, no springs.

    Also what is interesting, you will see a difference in the knurling pattern between the 2. Low volume, more or less hand made makes for some interesting differences.

    Wow.

    Just proof that there's nothing new under the sun. Flip flop fixed/free hub from 70+ years ago? Awesome.
