S. Silvain reviews the various designs on offer at the bicycle shows of the winter of 1900/01. He describes the following systems:

  • Gears in the rear hub.
  • Gears in the bottom bracket.
  • Gear systems that use two chains.
  • Shaft-drive transmissions

He goes onto consider the new-fangled freewheels and those equally new-fangled brakes that you require when you don’t have a fixed wheel.
