What is weirdest about this bicycle is that it has cottered cranks in the early 1980s. The year of of the bicycle was made is and not exactly for shure. All that is known really is that it's made the early 1980s.
The cottered crank is the weirdest part? Ummm, did you see the chainring behind the seat, or all the tubing to support it? I'm super curious about the inverted triple tree forks.
I have a book that has this bicycle and the description in it. I'm going to take a picture of it.
I have a question. Called a ten speed, but description says one speed. What's going on with that?
The Front wheel only has 10 spokes.
I counted, It has 14...
I wonder why he/she didn't thread the final cluster onto an internal 3-spd.
It's the stupider way for achieving what I thought of a long time ago - take a pre-WWII german bicycle with a 2spd BB, put on a 3 cog crankset on it (that is 2 x 3 = 6 gears in the front). And for this bike lace a wheel with a multi speed hub that also has a thread for a freewheel (as I recall Shimano made contraptions like that - multi speed hubs with a few cogs on it or something) to give you an additional 5 x 7 = 35 in the back (or something like that) and 35 x 10 = 350 gear positions... imagine the posibillites, imagine mounting all these shift levers on one steerin bar
That's kind of awesome in a way that something completely ridiculous can be. I've often thought of ideas I'd never build for just a stupid number of ratios, like a Rohloff with a 12x3. Adding in that second cassette is genius! I'd be reasonable, though, and just go with 10-speed cassettes for a mere 4200 ratios (sort of, as most of them would be virtually redundant).
Hey, maybe all those clusters and chains are needed to carry the weight of all those clusters and chains.
There should be a bike that is made in Colorado with 420 different ratios.
