    70 year old Integrated headset

    I found this foto of an integrated headset
    on an 1933 Umberto Dei Route.
    I knew integrated was around in the 50s/60s
    (bianchi had em) but 1933?
    Thanks to Joel Metz's Umberto Dei website for the pic.

    Wow! I didn't know integrated headsets had been around that long. Some bad ideas just never go away :-)

    Some bad ideas just never go away... like elliptical chainrings, K-Mart bikes, and stopping to "pet the nice doggie that likes to run next to me".

    Woof.

    Hey-what a great idea for a new thread!

    Other bad ideas that won't go away? How about cut-out saddles, glueless patches, any tyre by vittoria, etc. This thread could be endless!
    Je vais vlo, donc je suis!

    one of my bikes has bio-pace chainrings & the other ordinary round , both shimano, both the same size and theres not realy any noticable differance, not enough to warrent the expence of new chain-rings anyway, the only thing is the front shifter on the bio-pace needs to be adjusted a lot finer than the ordinary round one.
    :D
    dont worry be happy ????
