Fair enough to, it does add considerable weight to the bike. Then add on single gear... :shock:

If you were willing to run a derailleur set up you could build a wide freewheel hub similar to my ones in this how to: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=68533&p=661483#p661483

Derailleur would add too much bulk. Thought about that. Looking for clean. But thanks for that link. I'll remember that

honestly, i don't know. im figuring about 2-5 psi to lift the bicycle. only takes 8 to lift my motorcycle. 15 to full riding a minibike stiffness. tank is a 24oz. holding 3000psi. so, i'm guessing a few times lol. running a parker slow down, .... near closed. valve on tank is less than a .... hair opened. debating between running 2 ball valves or try and find some micro 12v valves and use a power wheels battery.

This sounds like something that would make my brain hurt trying to figure it out. 3000psi... WOW! How much weight can one of those air cylinders pick up?

Lol it would lift my Mazda I had 2x. It's all in the volume and pressure. Reason I'm running everything almost closed is cuz if I had all the way opened and hit the switch, it would probably shoot the bike up 20 feet and kill me lol
