No, Just, No

I'm declaring a one year moratorium on bicycle design. I realize that my wishes will probably be ignored, but it felt good to say it anyway.

  1. Paul, I hear you but I think the pulley bike makes up for this awkward design:

  2. Phil - Agreed. I liked the pulley bike when I saw it, but I love tensioning my own chain so much, I'm afraid I'd miss it.

  3. That's slick, Phil B. I can't help thinking that I've seen a similar mechanism used in something else, though ...

    Maybe new bicycle designs should be allowed, with the requirement that they must be ridden in some kind of real-world traffic for a distance of one mile before being shown to the world.

    Sheesh!

  5. Wow. An uncomfortable slow bike with a built-in magazine rack.
