    Correct me if I am wrong, but someone here on the forum had one of these machines in For Trade a few years ago, did they not?

    Way cool. Do they have a name like "The Wheelman's Sporting Club"

    What kind of bikes are those?

    No info came with the picture but the paint jobs look very Swiss. those forks must be so that you can spin your wheel all the way around or something. Are the back rims wood?

    I should also mention that someone is selling this photograph on Ebay under vintage bike. I don't think it's one of us but I'll check the new Ebay ID list.

    Cool!

    Check out the chainring and chain -- they're running a 1:1 gear ratio. Is that supposed to be easier for tricks?

    On another note, someone should have told them that pink and red don't mix.

    Are we certain those bikes are not just unicycles with a spare wheel?

    Circus bikes. A few years ago, or maybe more than ten, I ran across a company that sold circus props and gear while shopping for a unicycle. I've probably still got their small catalog around here someplace. They had bikes listed that were set up like the ones in that picture only a bit newer. Not a bike that you'd want to commute on or ride a century with but neat in the sense of what they're designed for.

    just found a blog post about circus bikes on the velo-orange site

    Those have got to be like, the earliest known BMX cranks. I mean, seriously. Have you guys seen some of the cranks they put on those things now-a-days?
    Not my sport I guess. Maybe I'm just not meant to understand.

    That would be a fun bike to leave somewhere for it to be stolen. Bring a camcorder to film the mess that ensues! LOL.

    I'm guessing they intentionally over tighten their headsets.
