That front crank turns a higher gear so the cranks won't be synchronized.

I noticed both cranks are actually the same distance to the saddle so it seems you can put your feet on either one of them depending on your choice high or very high gear ratio. It's essentially a 2 speed bike....but without actually shifting gears at all...so it's also a single speed at the same time, confusing isn't it??

Cool non-riding bike for exhibitions and expositions.
It is not easy, but you can ride together - one controls, sitting on the frame, the other turns the rods, sitting on the saddle.
I'm on my bike riding alone in reality:

Demonstration of the new transmission. The video also shows an idle time of just 84 seconds. In reality, the connecting rods spin at idle for about two minutes.

After a fight with the Mrs when she needs her space, but you still need to give her a top tube lift to the hairdressers.

My new project will include my newly invented gear and will be based on the design of the 1879 Ruge Rotary bicycle. It will be made at the stage of the drawing project, and then it can be embodied in metal. This will be a stunning bike racing project!
