Up until 1937, the fixed wheel was the only bicycle permitted to be ridden in the Tour de France. This was because of a rule enacted by Henri Desgrange, who was somewhat of a purist. Of course, after 1937 derailleurs were allowed and here we are today. This may be common knowledge, but this photo needed a bit of a backstory. Really awesome shot!Via Prolly

But where is it Jos "Da Boss" van Veldhoven, owner of Tour de Ville, the shop that opened a year and a half ago in Hackney, 50 Lamb's Lane north east London? Now the place is closed and abandoned and, if I knew it, I could have saved over an hour to go and another to come back by tubes and buses. What a pity. Who has got recent news please give us some piece of informations.
