Altenburger (DBR)

also a producer of derailleur gears around this period

hubs manufactured as well

joined forces with Magistroni of Italy and GB of Britain to offer a short-lived road ensemble in this era

GB became the agent for Altenburger gears in the UK market

this page illustrates a Cinelli kitted with the ensemble...
