    "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.

    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
