Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I'm going to assume late thirties to late forties based on his dress and the bike.

But that's a pretty uneducated guess.

English school kids still dress like that, and we still ride bikes that look like that. But your guess on the years sounds reasonable to me.

This is my all-time favourite FGSS thread. A big thank-you to you, kaiju-velo!

I got this pic from Sianelle - I hope she doesn't mind I am posting it, but if she does, I will remove it:

Here is an earlier design from 1895. This never really took off...too bad. Earliest usage of the term "track bike"?
