Chariots pulled by tandem - add the Ben Hur bladed wheels & just the job for city commuting. :wink:
That rowing bike looked fun too.

You just can't please some people; they campaign for a section of the forum dedicated to non-standard cycles, then, when the definitive footage of non-standard cycles appears, they want to post it somewhere else. :roll:

:wink:

I'm afraid I agree with the OP. Its far too good to allow folk to miss it by locating it in one of the less travelled areas.
However, the "Moved" link should do the job :lol:

I'm really taken by the small wheel recumbents. Why didnt they make a comeback? Folding pedals and a convenient way to align the bars with the front wheel is all you'd need for a simple and convenient commuter! Bye Bye Brompton!

I think my favourite on the archive stuff was the two people, each with a large wheel with pedals and not much else. My first thought was that it would eliminate all the Q's about alloy vs. steel vs carbon vs titanium; handlebars; gear mechs; chains slipping; bottom bracket spindles; BUT you would still be left with how to fit a pannier rack; how to get one on a train; which was the best gear, although this would combine with discussions about wheel size, which makes me realise there would still be plenty of issues 'around' wheels.

I agree that calling our attention to this was welcome and fun.

BUT - it should have been moved to The Tea Room - not here.
May I suggest a relocation please?
