  • Portacatena
    get the chain back onto the smallest sprocket Five speed freewheel on six speed axle and frame spacing plus Potracatena So how does this device work Campag ends designed for the Portacatena 1010B had two holes drilled to enable it to be fitted The Portacatena carrier fitted inside the rear ends and looked a bit like a segment of a sprocket with the teeth ground off although it was made of alloy As mentioned earlier the rider would move the chain onto this and off the sprockets The down tube changer for this gear use had a small trip lever which had to be released to enable the chain to ride onto the device Without this a rider could end up with no drive at a critical moment imagine changing to the smallest sprocket for the final sprint misjudging and sitting there spinning the pedals with no drive at all Down tube mounted Campagnolo gear lever with trip The disadvantage was that this device came out when top riders were using six gears However the Portacatena rider had to give up one of these gears and resort to five gears only Obviously the rider was at something of a disadvantage for a whole day s riding over the conventional set up with an extra gear One gear may not seem much but on modern day bikes an extra gear from nine to ten or ten to eleven does make quite a difference in letting one be at the right cadence at all times no matter what the terrain and an extra gear from five to six is of a much higher percentage Another disadvantage is that neutral service vehicles may not know which wheel to give a Portacatena user and it would more than lose time saved if they had

  • Shellwin lightweight hubs
    line of the spoke from hub to rim thus reducing stresses which could lead to breakage The easier spoke line can be seen in the image on the right The hub shell and flanges were made of special light alloy polished with solid nickel chrome molybdenum steel spindles grooved and with hollow ends hardened steel cones washers and lock nuts The rear hub was fitted with a larger diameter locknut which gave a greater area with which to secure the wheel in the frame dropouts and so reduce the chance of the wheel pulling over The cups and cones were standard size and used diameter balls front and rear Shellwin supplied spacing washers of various thicknesses to enable the wheelbuilder to centre the hub in the correct position in relation to the number of gears used and also to tailor the hub to fit the dropout width The hubs were produced in both small and large flange models although I have never seen a small flange version The small flange was available as double fixed or gear fixed and I assume it did not feature the angled flange The front was 4 over the cone lock nuts and axle was
