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!

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.
