General Information
In the mid 70ties the GDR state-directed sport organization decided to put all relevant critical functions for success in cycling (and probably in other sport too) together. 
Under the lead of two PhD's the leading heads in training methodology (and probably more) an engineer who builded frames in the mid to end 70ties and Paul Rinkowsky all technical activities were centralized in Carl-Marx Stadt (today called Chemnitz again). 
The three columns of their success were :
  • talent scouting in schools and so called ‘first step races’. Out of this system all today known German top cyclist with some exceptions were recruited.
  • centralize training and education in boarding schools
  • advancement of the sport equipment
The equipment development can be characterized into two phases the TEXTIMA (tubular steel bikes traditional spoked wheels) and the FES phase with compound based structural parts.
For some years FES made the disk wheels for the national team riding on TEXTIMA steel frames.
