    This Alenax bike found me as I was working on my trailer. My neighbor was on the way to Goodwill and stopped to see I was interested in a couple of 10 speeds or the Alenax. He offered it up for free. I’ll look it over and see what it takes to replace the cable. I told him I’d return the favor someway.
    I’ve seen this type pedal system on a couple of bikes before but never had one. Seems like a solid skinny tire workout bike. It’s been garaged.
    Anyone with knowledge of these critters?

    That's different. What is it, some kind of ratcheting mechanism?

    I think if the cable was complete you pedal it like a stair climber exercise device.

    Might be ok if you change the handlebar set up.

    I've never worked on a treadle bike, but the basic concept isn't difficult. It ought to be a fairly easy prospect to fabri-cobble a rugged repair.
