    There I was, reading the updates on www.letour.fr, and I see the headline "Arroyo collects Fixed Bike".

    Hurrah, thought I, back to proper cycling.

    But it was just his one with gears that had been broken.

    Hurroo.

    Derailleur-equipped bikes were first allowed into the Tour in 1937. It would seem that this increased overall Tour speeds 'dramatically':

    By my thinking, the last full-Tour fixed ride would have been very shortly thereafter..
