    It's an interesting piece of history, but as a bike to ride it's poop. Treadle drive is one of those bad ideas that keeps coming back every 20 years or so.

    There was one of those just listed in Knoxville Craigslist earlier this week (or maybe the weekend). I had never seen one before, designed to be like a stair climber or according to manufacturer "more closely mimic a walking motion". Weird how I had never seen one and now 2 have popped up this week alone!

    I have seen 2 before, somebody posted a bike that was similar last week, but it wasn't a mtb, one of those wacky bikes that somebody thought was a good idea to build..." if it's not broke don't fix it"
