    3 ratios, 2 chains, 1 crazy hack

    From the font of bikey goodness, www.SheldonBrown.com, the fixed-fixed-free bike.

    I hope that one day all of Sheldon's crazy bikes are preserved in a Sheldon Brown museum of some sort.

    I tried to figure this out and I'm pretty sure I just pulled a muscle in my brain.

    In a way it's surprising that more unique/innovative gear mechanisms have never caught on in any way. The fact that this is *so* unique to people is almost more weird than the bike itself.

    Why would they? If you can make something that does the job in one step, why use something that does the same job in 5? It's like trying to build a better mousetrap.

    Not trying to downplay the coolness of this, I just don't really understand this comment.

    If you want to understand the comment, just look at your own analogy. Have you really only seen one type of mousetrap?
