August 1967 - Walter Flory advert

Sporting Cyclist August 1967 Walter Flory advert main image

This Walter Flory advert from August 1967 is the first to feature the Huret Luxe (2100). Since this derailleur does not appear in the Huret 1966 catalogue, this makes 1967 a reasonable guess for the launch date of this derailleur.

The image of the Huret Svelto shown is of a version that had long been superceded. By 1967 the Huret Svelto had plastic-edged pulley wheels and an outer pulley cage with only two 'spring catchers' on it. Walter Flory has form for re-ussiung old images - presumably in an effort to confuse future derailleur historians.

Many thanks to Andy Fraser for lending me this magazine and allowing me to scan it.
