This flickr find photo comes from JP Weigle’s Photostream. Pictured are a pair of 1960′s British Made ‘Cyclo’ spint carriers. According to Weigle:
These went behind the front quick release and allowed one to carry their race wheels to an event. A toe strap went around the wheel at the top and also went around the end of the handlebars.
If you head over to Chris 531′s Photostream, you can see the above accessory in action
On a personal note, this is a very hard concept for me to grasp. One bike (yes, ONE) that does it all? Head to the race, strip all the mudguards, lights and racks off your bike. Put on your ‘formal shoes’, race, then load up and head home. It’s a novel idea- but then you would only need ONE bike [insert smiley here].
