The second Championnat de la Polymultipliée was held on 3/5/14. The 50 entries included 13 derailleur equipped bikes:

  • Eight Audouard 4-speeds
  • One Le Chemineau 3-speed
  • Two Le Chemineau 6-speed (which I take to be 2X3 derailleur systems with a double chainwheel)
  • One 'Le Chemineau-Erpelding 6-speed (which is possibly a combination of a 3 speed derailleur and a 2 speed hub gear)
  • One 'Le Chemineau-Sturmey-Archer' 9-speed (which is possibly a combination of a 3 speed derailleur and a 3 speed hub gear).

The derailleur manufacturers of St-Étienne were out in force.
