Burqa Bike

Can't anyone get a 'burqa friendly' bike?


Buy me one of these and I'll intercede on your behalf with Allah, Jésus, Spaghetti Monster, etc.

I'm sure there some correlation between "shaft drive" and "burqa friendly" but I'm probably not the first to point this out.

Holy Crap! It's only $650!!!

With a Shimano 7-speed hub.

$55 shipping US.

Man. I am going to be such a good boy for Kwannaramast this year.

D said...

cheap indeed. I just spent $150 on *tires* for my bike...

I guess you've already got your "stimulus payment" earmarked, eh?

Some of us won't be getting any "stimulus".

Sucks to be us.

I know- Sucks to be us!

But this ride does look like a treasure!

This loos like heaven on wheels.
ButI Know we have at least one engineer out there; my question is ; with a small (maybe 2") primary crank, How can you power the rear hub to take advantage of the 7 secondaries?

How can you power the rear hub to take advantage of the 7 secondaries?

Because the rear hub is one of these which has been modified to take input drive from the bevel gear instead of a cog.

I've previously been schooled on the magic of the Shimono Nexus yet this still makes no sense to my feeble mind .
Big gear primary allows fast geaar seacondary; again the primary seems to be about 2"

Que the F paso?

Sheldon doesn't like them:

but he's dead.

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

-Hunter S. Thompson

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
