    still looking for info on kangaroo style

    i originally asked this in the FG/SS section because this can only be done on a fixed gear, but i didn't get any info except that maybe i should ask here. to start, kangaroo style is when you take a fixed gear bike, remove the non-drive side crank, put it back on flipped 180 degrees so that the cranks are synchronous, (they're at the top or bottom of the stroke at the same time.) this is something that some fixed riders do just to be silly, which is why i first tried it out. but, upon riding in this manner i realized that this had some potential as an exercise/ training tool. i have been looking on the web for any studies or applications of riding kangaroo style for a class project i'm working on but have found next to nothing. i did find a patent for a stationary trainer using this configuration but little more. any info on this subject would be greatly appreciated. thanks

    There have got to be better ways to train than this. Maybe you can't find much info on it for a reason?

    Do a search for power cranks, it has come up before in those threads although I think they refered to it as dolphin style.
