Bicycle Tech Links

Home back to Damon Rinard's Bicycle Tech Page
Spoke Divider

Tech-savvy cyclist Damon Rinard kept a long list of links to bicycle-related Web sites, updating it through sometime in the year 2001, when a change in employment required him to turn the content over to Sheldon Brown. Many of these links are still current as of 2015; some brand names have changed ownership; other sites have disappeared -- but most of those are preserved in the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine, and we have linked to them there. The archived links offer a look back into the history of bicycling technology, the bicycle business and the Internet which you may find interesting.

We have checked and updated all of the links on this page as of September, 2015, confirming good links, updating links when necessary, retrieving links from the Internet Archive, and commenting out the few links for which all of those attempts failed.

We could do more with this page, using a background color to identify archived pages, doing additional sorting of entries, adding new references, but for now, we need ot move on to other work. -- John Allen

Searching, and the Wayback Machine:

Damon Rinard sorted entries by category, but still, your Internet browser's Find function can be helpful when you qare viewing this page.

When you click on a link, the linked page will open in a separate browser window or tab.

If the page is no longer available on the open Internet, it will open under the Wayback Machine banner and timeline, like this:

archived page

The timeline is bar graph showing the dates when a page was archived. The date highlighted in red is for the version of the page displayed underneath the banner. We have usually chosen the latest date at which a page was available.You may click on other dates in the timeline, or on the arrows either side of the date field to its right to go to different dates. Using the Back and Forward buttons in your browser, you may navigate among different dates which you have examined.

You may also type or paste a URL at the top of the page, then click on the "Go" button to view the page. This will sometimes fail. if the current content of a page prohibits access by a Web crawler. Then click on the Wayback Machine logo at the left side of the top banner to go to the Browse History page, shown in the image below. This page has a timeline but it works differently

Wayback machine browsing page

Clicking on a year in the Browse History timeline highlights the year in yellow, as shown, and brings up a calendar for that year below the timeline, as shown in the image above. The blue dots in the calendar indicate dates when a Web page was archived. Clicking on a blue dot brings up the archived page for that date. Once you have brought up an archived page, it is more convenient to use the smaller timeline on that page, as already described, to navigate to different dates.

A look at additional dates using the Wayback Machine and a Web search on the open Internet may reveal history, as pages changed over time -- see for example our entry for Serotta in the list below..

"Wayback Machine", by the way (see Wikipedia article), is an expression fondly borrowed from the Rocky and Bullwinkle cartoon TV show, one of the finest shows on television in the 1960s, amusing for children and adults alike, now available on DVDs and Hulu. The image below is of Mr. Peabody, the genius mathmatician dog, and his pet boy Sherman, about to enter the Wayback machine, which took them on various humorous adventures in the historical past.
