What set up /sizes did the greats of yesteryear use? I mean the Coppi's and Bartali's from the 40's and 50's.. From old pictures they seem to have used much closer (and smaller) chain rings and I think the smallest rear cog available was a 13. They seemed to go pretty fast without the need for a 53x 11!
