Something along those lines, has been fairly common in Europe for a while.

Great Idea though.



Beat me to it, I went to say that and then saw your response. I’ll say it anyways.

No kidding, awesome idea. :clap:

Given this is not a tubeless setup, I'd dare to claim that I can swap a set of regular tires just as fast, using a Co2 cartridge.

Agreed. Had a pal send me info about it. It’s like shaft drive bikes. Appeals to people that aren’t cyclists :lol:

Interesting design. The drive setup is a real mind fuck

That's pretty amazing.
Imagine your boss asked you to make a human powered vehicle, with the single request, that it would have to feature every single drawback known to mankind, from every HPV made to date.
Those guys obviously managed to please the boss.

But you can get one with 29" magnesium wheels. I bet they convert to tubeless with no effort!

Picked up a LeRun skatebike today for shits and giggles. Prior owner said he never figured out how to ride it.
My first ride I too failed. Miserable toy. Lean left it turned right tossing you. Same on right turns. Unridable.

Then I noticed the skateboard truck out front was backwards

$10 for a gateway drug to unicycling :dance:

I just have to analyze things. The bicycle is like the wheel itself in that being a perfect design it’s a target for some dope to try an improve. “I’ll show them” kinda stuff.
Some people just get so obsessed they take it all the way to production then I get to buy their failure on the cheap to play with! lol

I have a list of must have items. Just wait for the right opportunity to make them mine

Truck mounted backwards, that should make for a good challenge. Would make it pretty theft proof.
Once I made a bike, with a gear between the stem and the fork, so steering was reversed.
Parking it iunlocked was fair etnertainment.
Riding it was not all that difficult, but first it requires you know what hit you, second it takes some practice.

I’ve always wanted to try a bike like that. I think I could get the hang of it pretty fast.
One of the old school ‘stunts’ I mastered was riding seated on the handlebars facing the back of the bike. You have to train yourself to basically turn opposite but lean the same. I suspect it’d be the same way with the gear reversal trick

It wasn't all that hard to build, and woild be even easier to do based on an old muscle bike.

There are fuzzy pics here of the unicycles skate bike things used in the Monkees TV show. I tried one with the skateboard trucks like posted earlier and couldn't get it after a few tries.

Someone on Rat Rod Bikes Facebook page posted one of these then another member posted a link to this one on the cabe.

Beautiful bicycle. Glidacycle From the late 30s. Very much the beginnings of stretch bicycles
